We pride ourselves on producing a delicious range of classic and gourmet sandwiches, as well as daily and seasonal specials, freshly prepared and made on the premises in St Cuthbert’s Street, Bedford to eat in or take away.

If you need to cater for a business lunch or corporate event, a private party, a christening, a funeral wake or are entertaining at home, we can deliver freshly prepared buffet platters of deep-filled sandwiches, rolls and baguettes along with hot and cold canapes, salads, dips, crisps, fruit, cakes and pastries.

All our canapes and cakes are made by hand, in house, daily.

Open Monday to Saturday from 9am


Eat-in or take away classic and gourmet sandwiches, rolls, baguettes and paninis.

We believe that we are unique in Bedford in that we offer a deli-style of presentation where all our fillings are displayed in the counter and customers are able to make up their own bespoke lunch. Alternatively we have an extensive menu of classic and gourmet fillings, which guide your choice.  We offer  jacket potatoes, panini, homemade Stew Pots and soup and a daily hot special.

We offer freshly brewed coffees, teas and hot chocolate alongside a wide range of soft drinks and delicious homemade cakes.

If you’ve missed out on breakfast, pop in for a freshly prepared sausage, bacon or egg roll, push the boat out and enjoy Roosters’ Famous Full English, or grab a coffee before heading to work or into town.

Our breads are made by a small, local artisan baker who uses no additives or preservatives in his production. We receive our order of bread at 5am every morning so you can be sure that is as fresh as it can be.  Alongside traditional white, brown and granary batch loaves and white or brown baguettes, we have a wide range of rolls and our famous Vienna rolls, which resemble a sub roll but their method of baking, with the injection of steam, produces a thinner crust and airy crumb.

Last but not least are our famous salad bowls.  Similarly made to order whilst you wait, they include a generous base of traditional salad items – lettuce, tomato, cucumber, rocket, beetroot and homemade coleslaw, topped with five garnishes of your choice and completed with a salad “filling” of our choice from our huge range.


Delicious sandwich and buffet platters for any occasion

At Roosters we can provide a wide range of fresh, delicious and sophisticated food to meet a wide range of tastes and budgets. All our buffet platters are freshly prepared on the day they are required and are a great addition to any business meeting, corporate or training event, christening, funeral wake, private party or any family occasion.

Our canapes and cakes are all made by hand in-house and offer a unique and sophisticated addition to any menu.

We generally only cater within our opening hours from Monday to Friday but can cater outside our usual hours with prior arrangement.

We can cater for any dietary requirement, so please do not hesitate to ask.

Delivery charge of £3.25 applies, as does a minimum order of 4 guests.




Roosters Sandwich Bar & Coffee Shop has been trading from St. Cuthbert’s Street in the heart of Bedford since 1998. The business continues to flourish with a loyal customer base and friendly and hard working staff.

Since taking over the business in summer 2011 we have achieved a FIVE star food hygiene rating from Bedford Borough Council and have already invested in additional staff training so that all our team have achieved the Level 2 Food Hygiene & Safety Certificate. We continuously develop the catering and customer service skills of our team.


Roosters is unique in offering our customers a deli-style choice throughout the menu.  Displaying our huge range of sandwich, rolls , panini, jacket potato fillings – you are free to custom-make your own order or be guided by our extensive menu ideas.  Every item will be made by hand as you wait.

We provide a hot specials board which changes daily, offering a gourmet sandwich or roll, alongside our increasingly popular Stew Pots and our homemade soups.  Both the Stew Pots and soup offer a healthy, gluten free alternative.

And don’t forget our extensive range of hot and cold drinks, snacks and home made cakes.


Did you know that Roosters has a second branch within the Enhanced Services Centre at North Wing Hospital, Kimbolton Road, Bedford MK40 3NT.

At our second branch, you can enjoy our entire menu which is also made by hand each morning, alongside our extensive range of hot and cold drinks, snacks and homemade cakes.

We hope to open a third branch in 2018.


Last but not least, and another string to our bow, is our catering.  We provide lunches for a huge number of local businesses in Bedford throughout the year which are prepared throughout the morning for lunchtime delivery.  We have catered for a number of our clients for over 10 years and have formed wonderful relationships with them all.  Our buffet menu is very extensive and we make all our canapes and cakes by hand in house.
