Where we are

First built in 1931, The Bedford is an iconic venue well known for being a cornerstone of London’s thriving comedy, live music,  and entertainment scenes. It’s played host the best in the business from Lee Evans to Lee Mack, from U2 to Ellie Goulding. Eddie Izzard did his first gig here. Ed Sheeran was a regular performer and even recorded his first album here.

Following a multi-million pound refurbishment it is now an unrivalled pub, club, restaurant, comedy and live music venue with 15 stunning hotel rooms. We highly recommend coming for dinner before the show and then partying until 2am for an incredible evening.  Find out more;
