Bedford Soda Liquor is a New York inspired neighbourhood bar serving hand-made sodas, cocktails and meatballs.

With great vibes and regular DJ sets, Bedford is ideal for a casual catch-up with friends. Their unique menu offers more balls than you’ve ever eyeballed before. Try beef, chicken or vegetarian balls paired with your choice of sauce.

Have your balls in a Bedford sub baguette, with spaghetti, quinoa salad or seasonal veggies. Grab a Bedford bite on the side, including shoe string fries, mac and cheese and polenta fried squid. There’s a huge range of possibilities! All balls are hand rolled, gluten free and free range.

Bedford’s colourful cocktails are a must-try. Made with artistic flair, you’ve never seen cocktails quite like this before!

The mains side where you choose your balls sauce and underballs were amazing, the greens and sliders were pretty standard. We enjoyed our cocktail pitcher.. service was good, friendly, but the music was a bit loud so was hard to have a conversation or hear the server properly. Overall an enjoyable experience that's a little bit different to your usual meal out, very yummy balls meal!

Enjoyed dinner, would come again. Some of the portions (eg prawns) were small for the price and the table wasn't cleaned between customers. Lovely ambiance especially the outside areas.

Absolutely incredible! The food and the atmosphere takes you away and makes you feel like you are in a buzzing American City. Could not fault the food even if I tried- and don't even get me started on the sauces. I wanted to bottle them all up and take them home! As for the drinks, there is a different drink for everyone and you would not find prettier, more creative drinks anywhere else. Could not recommend Bedford enough. Have already booked to go back this weekend!

Definitely recommend this great spot in Takapuna. Who knew meatballs could be so delicious?

And the macaroni cheese is decadent cheesy goodness - but definitely no-good if you’re still shredding for summer!

Already looking forward to a return visit ….

My family and I were greeted by a lovely young lady who continued the wonderful service throughout our lunch. She was polite, patient and extremely helpful. There serving size were just what I needed and food very tasty (especially the chicken strips) We've never been here before but will definitely comeback, especially after our First table experience. Totally recommend to anyone to try them out.

Great food, we had 4 people and all wanted a taste of everything and staff were very accommodating. We had each dish separately so we could mix and match ourselves and it was perfect! Got a table outside in the arvo sun which was amazing, great atmosphere! Would recommend, will go again!

We were greeted by the friendly staff who showed us the menu and how it works, it's unique and you can basically circle in what you want which makes it very personalised and interactive. We over ordered but they were lovely and gave us non-plastic containers to take away. They lit a candle for us as we sat down and everything we ordered was so good I was trying to find one complaint. The sodas are incredible and their flavours are so out of this world and I would come back again 100%

The food here is legit delicious! And so filling! First time to this place and the ordering concept was a winner with our 12 year old. We ordered a sub and two meatballs with salad and mash. Simple dishes you may think as well as shoestring fries as additional sides. The salt and vinegar seasoning on the fries were sooo good but we could hardly eat them because we were so satisfied from our main dishes! The mash is like home made mash and the beetroot salad was a hit with the hubby! He also raves about his garlic prawns. The drinks on the other hand are a whole other experience. The attention to flavour combinations is bang on. Just superb all round dining lunch experience as well as the fabulous service. We will definitely make this a place we come back to often as our daughter also loved the food as much as we did. Food coma is all I’ll say, there was no room for dinner that night. Highly recommend for a decent fulfilling meal at lunch.
