“We wanted to create a place that was friendly, inviting and different from the norm, a neighbourhood pub that offers fantastic food, great service and a feeling of comfort for everyone,” say the owners of Finbar’s, Michael and Pamela Casey, who’ve run the place since October 2004. Clearly their plan is working, given this award, a first for the Bedford watering hole. One other thing to note, the place has been VLT free for awhile, and according to a note on their website, the reaction from the community was even more supportive than the management expected.
