The Bedford is big. In another world it could be an army barracks. A huge slab of a building containing a ballroom, a theatre, umpteen function rooms various bars - of course - stairs, half landings and various mysterious doors. A bar tender could probably work downstairs and never meet the upstairs employees. And this is so much more than just a place to drink in - although the choice isn't bad with up to half a dozen real ales promised and food is available. There was a play on in the theatre the night we were in and regular comedy and cabaret nights are on offer, too. Young, vibrant and lively is, for once, an accurate description - and although we are not quite sure why, it seems to be summed up by the bicycles double and triple banked and chained to the railings outside. Not a place for the quiet contemplative pint and a relaxed chat but if you want full-on entertainment, noise and activity look no further.

Balham's finest, especially at weekends. Great live music most nights of the week including "try outs" for struggling bands. All music catered for in the Bedford's very own theatre and I am pretty sure they do plays and stuff there too.
