About this space

Cocktail & Wine Bar below the Bedford available for private hire up to 35-40 people.

In September 2016, we opened our ‘speakeasy-style’ cocktail & wine bar, Vale Vault, downstairs in our basement which was previously just a storage area!

The Vale Vault is open to the public on Friday & Saturday evenings from 7 pm until midnight. In the Vault we serve some of the finest cocktails in town, using premium spirits & mixers. The cocktail menu was designed by our in-house mixologist and bar manager, Lauren Bowcott.

About The Bedford

Way back in July 2011 the bar was refurbished and transformed from a grotty, run-down public house to a premier, traditional alehouse. Starting off with eight cask ales and six keg beers, we are now proud to serve ten cask ales and ciders on the pumps along with eight keg beers and craft ales.

Let’s not forget the superb selection of spirits and wines available to our customers. Our premium gin selection features some of the most popular and delicious gins on the market and they are all paired perfectly with tonics from Fever-Tree. A perfect compliment to our cask ales is our offering of single-malt Scotch whiskies. We have eight of the very best available!

Here at The Bedford, we pride ourselves on our friendly and accommodating staff. We have strived to attain a calm environment to ensure you can enjoy your drinks and hopefully feel comfortable and relaxed at all times.

We hope you enjoy your experience at our small, but cosy little bar. Remember, if you have any suggestions or comments, then we are always happy to hear from you.
