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!

Restaurant was great, went there to celebrate a birthday with my partner and it was the perfect relaxed vibe. The staff were very kind and helpful and made killer sodas and cocktails!

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.

Had a lovely late lunch at Bedford Takapuna. Chicken and beef meatballs were good as was the Oreo cheesecake. Had to drop a star due Creme burlee’s being overcooked as curdled from about halfway down the ramekins and Chef’s special meatballs did not have a nice texture or taste. Great attentive service and good value for money.

A great all-round experience. The polenta was super good, as were the meatballs, shakes, sauce and everything else we ordered........we ordered way too much food so had to unfortunately skip the desert....was so looking forward to the deep fried Oreos too!!!!

Such a great ambience! candlelit and very cosy - just what you want in a family dinner to make it feel welcoming. The staff were great - 10/10 for the cocktail and soda making performance from the barman - and they were delicious! The food was delicious - the only problem was that we ordered too much - the portions are really generous. I'll be recommending Bedford Soda and Liquor to family and friends for sure!

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.

A good place to eat. I would go back for the amazing cocktails, and an order of chips!!!!!!The cocktails were amazing! The food, although it's what I chose was all fried....meatballs, chips, chicken was ok, service was truly wonderful. There was a person who was on his first day so another guy came to see that we understood what we had ordered

We had a lovely meal at Bedford Soda & Liquor! We both had the beef meatballs, I had the risotto and my partner had the spaghetti; everything was perfectly cooked. We also ordered a portion of squid and a side of greens - definitely more than enough for two people! Can’t fault it - will be back!
