About The Bedford

The Bedford London is one of the most impressive and extraordinary pubs in town. Located on Bedford Hill, on the corner of Fernlea Road and just a stone’s throw from Balham Station, this recently refurbished venue is charming, classic and beautifully grand. Serving quintessential British pub-style dishes made with fresh and high-quality ingredients, this is the perfect spot to catch up with mates or the whole family for a pint or two and delicious meal. Also offering a wide range of real ales, beers, wine and spirits, you’ll be in for a mighty fine time at The Bedford London. Popular among Balham locals for very good reason, we recommend you book a table ahead of time to avoid disappointment.

Really nice atmosphere and vibe, and the new refurbishment has made a huge different. Used to be a bit grotty, but with character, but now it's clean and fresh but still has character. Food and service was really good and lots of beers to choose from, will be back!

Had Sunday lunch here for the first time since the recent refurbishment. Couldn't fault it, staff were super friendly and helpful, buzzy atmosphere and the food was delicious. My husband and daughter had the roast beef with yorkshire pudding and I had the salmon. They also welcome dogs! Can't wait to go back.

The staff were lovely, very helpful and attentive. I had the pork fillet with tuna mayo to start, it was amazing and the rib eye steak for main, which for my money is the best steak in Balham!
