Events & Parties

Bedford & Strand is a great venue for parties of any size.

We’re happy to reserve tables in the bar area for just drinks and plates from the deli, or large tables and areas of the restaurant with specially created and priced set menus.

It is also possible to hire the whole place for exclusive parties and events, be it dinner, dancing or just drinks. We can work out canape menus, special cocktails and help take care of all the details including sound equipment, door staff and DJs should you require.

Please call and speak to the manager or come down and see us.
Wine and Cheese Tastings

With such knowledgable staff at hand it’s easy to organize tastings. An informal approach means a small or large group of friends or colleagues can have a fun and relaxed time while brushing up on a bit of foodie knowledge while we match wines and cheese and talk you through a bit of gastronomic art and science.
