The Bedford in Balham reopened in December 2018 following a multi-million-pound refurbishment giving the much loved pub, comedy club and grass-roots music venue a new lease of life. The Grade II listed venue now features five bars, four private rooms, a ballroom and a 250-capacity live music club, as well 15 brand new individually designed en-suite bedrooms.

Having previously hosted some of the world’s best-known acts including Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Paolo Nutini, KT Tunstall, Michael McIntyre, Eddie Izzard and Frank Skinner, The Bedford’s entertainment legacy continues as it gears up to welcome the stars of the future and nurture young up-and-coming talent. Expect a roster of exciting events, from hilarious stand-up comedy, courtesy of London’s longest running comedy club, Banana Cabaret, through to DJ nights and incredible live music, not forgetting all the key sporting games live on the big screen.

From the main Pub to the Saloon Bar and Club Room, the menu puts the spotlight on fresh, seasonal British produce. Take your pick from a range of tempting small plates, as well as artisan pizzas and flatbreads and of course all the much-loved pub classics. At the bar, the extensive drinks list features a dedicated tequila and mezcal menu, plus fine wines, premium spirits and an excellent selection of non-alcoholic tipples. Award-winning craft ales and gluten-free beers complete the picture. Music continues to be the beating heart of The Bedford, even when it comes to the serves – sip on a refreshing Two Tribes ‘Non Stop Hits’ Modern Lager or try the Island Records Session IPA, both brewed in London and sure to set your taste buds singing.
