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!

Mr 11 asked for Bedford and Soda for his late birthday lunch, and we were lucky enough to grab a first table. The service was amazing as always and the food was great! Portions are big!

Excellent service and the food was delicious! At first glance, the portions looks small, but they're very filling. The mushroom sauce is very mushroom-y - delicious! I loved the creamy polenta. And the both lamb and beef balls are to be recommended. The spicy tomato sauce has just the right heat, not too spicy. And if you have the Thai fish special with special curry sauce and special rice, I highly recommend it! Service was superb - funny and friendly! Great if you have teenage kids!

Great vibe and a very innovative menu with delicious drinks you won't get anywhere else. Friendly staff. Vegetable balls were really dry, even the sauce didn't save them. Sides of kumara and steamed green veg were delicious.

Something a bit different. Kids loved filling out their own menu and the food was great (really tasty lamb meat balls!).

We took our kids for an early, easy Sunday dinner. It was our first visit to Bedford and Soda and we enjoyed the quirky menu and relaxed, stylish setting. The food was yummy and we enjoyed being able to pick a few different dishes to share. Will definitely return using First Table for an affordable, relaxing family meal.

Mmm- not sure how to review this one. I love the concept and the kids menus kept the children busy and well entertained. Great idea to reduce wastage. The food was on the bland side and service a little on the slow side. Portions not big at all for what you pay. I think that they are heading in the right direction though.

The candle lit ambiance gave a cosy and intimate vibe but there is a casual feel into the place. Interesting way to order. Food tastes great! Got a savory dish and was surprised by hints of flavour and sweetness. Service is awesome! Perfect place for chilling and catching up. Loovee the drinks!

Food was delicious and so customisable! Make a spicy spaghetti and meatballs or have a cheesy lamb Caesar salad. The side were awesome too; definitely have the onion rings and also have the tater tots with gravy and cheese. Very creative and tasty cocktails to go with the meal.

We had beef and lamb balls plus a couple of sides. The risotto was amazing but the spaghetti was dry and lack of flavor. The broccoli and beetroot salad was average. The sodas were the highlight. You must try the homemade sodas. I had the gold kiwifruit soda and my friend had passion fruit soda and peach soda. Mine was refreshing with mint and lime and the passion fruit soda had so much passion fruit in it. The orange made it pretty special. The peach soda was also nice but it was sweetest among those three.

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.
