Praised in publications including The Guardian and Tatler, Bedford & Strand goes back-to-basics with its wonderfully refined comfort food. Offsetting a chic zinc-topped bar, this cosy basement setting is filled with gnarled floorboards and creaky shelves.
Blending hearty British flavours and elegant French accents, the Bedford & Strand menu showcases refreshingly simple flavour combinations. As well as a laidback bar menu, wholesome favourites at Bedford & Strand restaurant include tender rump of lamb with ratatouille and white beans, or terrine of smoked duck with soured apples and brioche.
As well as a rustic deli counter loaded with fresh breads and charcuterie meats, Bedford & Strand Covent Garden serves fine wines and trendy cocktails from the expansive bar. Decadent dessert flavours include zesty orange posset with ginger biscuits.
Rated by the Evening Standard’s Fay Maschler, Bedford & Strand London enjoys a faithful following. Charing Cross Rail Station is 3 minutes’ walk away.
