Drink

There are several pubs throughout the town, particularly around the High Street and Market Square. Biggleswade was previously a brewing town, with Greene King brewery based where the Asda supermarket now stands. This means that most of the pubs are Greene King with the exception of a few freehouses.

The bar at the Stratton House Hotel is nice but can get a bit busy at weekends and has an over 21 door policy. The Lounge in Church Street is more upmarket and has a large spirits, wine and champagne list. The New Inn on Market Square is frequented by those only just old enough to drink but has a great juke box and a nice landlady. Real ale aficionados head for The Rose or the Golden Pheasant. The Red Lion has live bands at the tail end of the week and is open until late.

Sleep

There's only a couple of hotels in the town itself: there are, however, more motel-style places out by the A1, and some country B&Bs in the area.
