The Bamford has recently been refurbished so everything is nice and new and quite nicely done.
On the food front it is the standard Beefeater menu, nice enough but nothing special. At the bar there is a range of premium lagers (Becks Vier, Stella, Carling extra cold), a couple of beers (Pedigree and Cumberland when I was last in - not sure if these change) and there are also a fair number of different wines available a decent prices (both by the glass and bottle). Where it falls short (aside from real ale) is on spirits as there is generally only one brand available for each of the more popular drinks and if your tastes run to anything more exotic than vodka/whisky/rum/gin then you may struggle.
Where the Bamford really picks up points is on the service, the staff are really good and it is a comfortable place to while away some time.
a budget ready meal lasagne is probably better than what this place served up - wait thats what it was but if i cooked it at home at least it would be hot and not on an ice cold plate, not impressed at all.
The Bamford Arms and Travel Lodge in Stockport is located on the main A6 on the corner of Nangreave Road in Heaviley. They have a fairly priced bar where you can go just for a few drinks, and also a restaurant upstairs. They serve some great food like steaks and burgers all at good prices. They also have a set menu of either 2 or 3 courses for a fixed price. The service is brilliant and the staff are very friendly.
The Bamford Arms is on the A6 in Stockport. It is a pub and restaurant with a travel lodge next to it. As you walk through the doors you find the bar to your left. It is a pub type bar, where a few locals obviously drink all the time. It is well decorated and looked after and the bar staff are friendly. The drinks are fairly priced too.
The restaurant is up the stairs as you walk in. There are a range of different sized tables and plenty of tables too.
The staff are very friendly and the food is great. I have never had a problem with the food or the service in here. They do a good range of different starters, main courses and desserts and also have a 2 and 3 courses for a set price menu.
The service is also very good in here.
Unfortunately the food isnt great and alot of it is microwaved ahead os serving to you. I used to work for the company and know that alot of the food is bought incredibly cheap and the mark up is huge to customers. Cheap steaks and to be honest the service overall wasn't great. Glum faces and in future I would only use the pub for a drink every now and again as there is alot better food in and around the area of the bamford arms. This isn't a rant as I review all restuarant/pubs I visit and am completely honest in my opinions. Please be aware that alot of the generic reviews are often employees and friends that will add info to lift the average rating of an establishment. they will put 5 out of 5 of course!
