Old Chester Road / Rock Lane West
Bedford I was warned this pub had a rough reputation but there was no sign of that when I finally got around to visiting. A plain well cared for multi-roomed boozer busy with friendly regulars.

Refreshment Rooms (Admiral Hotel)
Hand pump
Re-opened as the Refreshment Rooms gastro-pub in June 2012 after a long period of closure. A large open two-sided pub/restaurant with one side dedicated to diners (Although I sat there anyway.) Look out for the Birkenhead Brewery windows. The food looks good and the small selection of real ales includes a house brew.

Rock Station This two sided pub was nicely decorated but looking perhaps a bit grubby in places when I was there in 2003. It was nice to find a jukebox that was audible but not deafening.
Returning in 2015 I found it has been well looked after and there was no sign of the grubbiness. It was full of friendly locals who were mostly ignoring the multiple TVs showing sports.
I'm not sure I like three screens side-by-side showing three different sports - it's very distracting - but one can always sit elsewhere in the pub, so no cause for complaint.

Rock Villa This multi-roomed pub was almost empty on a Thursday evening. The interior is nicely done, traditional, partly wooden-floored.
