Road Closure A422: 5-18th August

The A422 between Bedford and Chicheley will be closed 24 hours a day between the above dates but we will be OPEN AS NORMAL. During this time there will be Marshalls at Bedford, Chicheley and Astwood. We have met with the Council and have agreed:-
At the Bromham Roundabout, please let the Marshall know that you are coming to the Old Swan and you will be escorted through the works.
There is no access to Astwood from the Chicheley Roundabout on the A422.
Divert either through Moulsoe and Cranfield or Newport Pagnell and North Crawley.
We hope to see you still!!

Phil & Clare Hale welcome you... their beautiful 17th century coaching inn.
The historic freehouse is full of rustic beams and character creating a cosy, relaxing and welcoming environment.  Look closely and you will often find their cocker spaniel Tessie snuggled up by the stunning real log open fire!

Fresh Food. Local. Freshly Prepared

With an emphasis on offering simple fresh food using local produce wherever possible, we bring you a variety of Marine Stewardship Council approved fresh fish and steak alongside our daily special blackboard. As a proud member of the Scottish Beef Club we are renowned for the quality of our beef, with Clare’s brother Oli, our 4th generation family butcher, supplying dry aged field to plate traceable beef.
