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!

We really enjoyed our meal last night. The food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the fries with gravy... They may be the nicest chips I've ever had. Can't wait to go back and try some more of their food!

If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting Bedford in Takapuna i highly recommend it! The service is always fantastic with the food being even better. Not to mention their unique range of cocktails. Solid 9.5/10!

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.

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.
