It is with great pleasure that we are able to reopen the doors to Boyds of Bedford on the 4th of July after more than 3 months being closed.

Sadly, as with all businesses we wont quite be back to normal yet so please read and digest the following guidelines before you visit.

These measures have been put in place to limit the amount of people at Boyds and and we are currently unable to accommodate group or club rides.

Limited Opening Hours:

For the time being we will be open at the following times only:

  • Thursday 9:30am - 5pm
  • Friday 9:30am - 5pm
  • Saturday 9:30am - 5pm

We will be closed on Thursday the 9th of July for personal reasons.

We hope to extend these hours over the coming weeks as we rebuild our team.


The shop is open at these times with the following measures in place:

  • Customers to sanitise hands on entry
  • 1 way system in place
  • Only 4 customers in store at a time
  • Please only touch things you intend to buy
  • Payment by card only (we did this anyway)
  • No food and drink orders will be taken or served at the counter
  • We cannot store helmets or motorcycle gear
  • No customer toilet available


Food and drink will be served at our outside seating ONLY and will be ordered and paid for via our app 'Orderly'.

WITHOUT EXCEPTION you will only be able to order from Cafe Brat if you are seated, and as such we will be taking table reservations to allow people to plan their visits ahead. If a table is free when you arrive you may be able to take it, but if they are all booked and taken, you will only be able to shop.

We are able to host a maximum of 16 people at a time meaning we can serve 112 people per day which 'should' be sufficient! :-)

You can book a table by clicking the link HERE. Each table can accommodate a maximum of 4 people.

PLEASE NOTE: Our tables are outside so are at the mercy of the elements. We hope to provide shelter over them at some point when funds permit.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
