We cater for every taste with a wide selection of traditional and modern favourites.

Enjoy your visit even more with 20% discount in both venues when dining between 10am and 11.45am* with your Privilege Card. If you haven't already applied for your card, you can apply by clicking here. *Monday - Saturday 10am - 11.45am. Excluding special offers and Bank Holidays.

Complete your visit to the store by relaxing in the stylish surroundings of the newly refurbished fully licenced Wickentree Restaurant. Start your day with breakfast  and enjoy a wide range of tasty, fresh cooked dishes from a full English breakfast to toast and preserves or why not try something a little different like eggs benedict and to drink why not try a cup of Twinning's English breakfast tea or something a little more up market like a glass of Bucks Fizz or a Bellini.

After browsing round our beautiful stores you'll then be ready for lunch and the Wickentree Restaurant is the perfect venue to relax and unwind. The extensive menu has been created by our Chefs using the finest ingredients to the highest standards and has an extensive choice of dishes to tempt you from Traditional Sandwiches to main meals like Fish and Chips. To compliment your meal why not treat yourself to a glass of Wine or a freshly made Barista Coffee.

After lunch we serve our famous Bedford Afternoon Tea which has been officially tested and endorsed by the Mayor of Bedford in celebration of a British institution. On Sundays we have our delicious Sunday Lunch Menu offering an appetising selection of meals and light bites. On Thursday Evenings why not enjoy a stroll around the Stores and then sample our Thursday Evening Special Menu where you can enjoy a two course meal for two people. Best of all you can also bring up to two children who will eat FREE. See our menu for full details.

Please note our Hollinwood cafe has had a full makeover and has been renamed Café 1947, a reference to the year HU was formed. It's a remarkable transformation and we'd love you to pop in and take a look for yourself.
