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!

Great offerings for all ages - kids loved it, adults loved it so it was a success all round. Particularly liked the handmade sodas and ability to design your own dinner. Would definitely recommend. Only downside was lighting was quite low.

The food amazing and the service was too. I can highly recommend the fried chicken and the black forest shake. My husband had lamb meatballs on polenta and really enjoyed it.

Awesome friendly & welcoming staff. Great food - meatballs a hit with everyone- catering for a family of 5. Loved the ambience & choice of old music tracks. Thank you for a great night will definitely be back!

Awesome food and service. We REALLY enjoyed the meatballs and milkshakes. The way they do the menus are fun and unique!

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!

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!

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.

Simply put - amazing! Food was delicious and satisfying. I love the structure of the menu that you can create your dish to your liking. The cocktails were one of the best I've had!! Even though the meatballs are a highlight, you have to try the liquor shakes, I'll go back for them alone. :) finally the service and atmosphere were amazing. We're already planning to go back.

This was our third time for a family dinner at Bedford's. We love the ambiance there. Both my partner and me and the kids love the menu selections. Food is delicious, service is great. Desserts are always a must try. This time kids tried strawberry shake and they loved it. We will definitely be back.

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.

The food was good however one of the orders was wrong. They were great at fixing the issue. Would go again!

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.

- dined at Bedford Soda & Liquor Takapuna on

The staff here are so friendly and helpful. We had 4 different dishes and we all liked our choices. The portions are generous and full of flavour. A great spot for a quick meal before a show.
