Funeral Tea

Here at the Gordon Arms Bedford we’re ideally placed to cater for a funeral tea following a funeral service as we’re just over 2 miles from Norse Road Crematorium.

A wake is an opportunity for family, friends and colleagues from both near and afar to get together.
We personally understand that the loss of a loved one is a stressful time, the last thing you want to be thinking about is tea and cake when you’re trying to arrange more delicate matters.

So that’s why we make it as easy as possible for you. Once you know the date and time of the service then check that we have availability.
We can cater for up to 60 guests in the pub itself – there is no hire fee and for larger groups, maximum 120 people the Ent Shed is more suitable, the hire fee is £300; this includes a separate bar and guest seating.
