The Bedford Tavern
The Bedford Tavern is a craft beer pub in North London. The quality of this venues beer, wine and food menu now translates across to its live music offerings with Thank Folk its Tuesday.
One local resident described Seven Sisters Road to me as ‘predominantly a flat grey mass of gloom’. There are a few beacons, however, such as the recently reopened Bedford Tavern. This big Victorian boozer had been boarded up since 2009, but new owners have revived it with great results.
The beer list emphasises London. Regular draught offerings all come from the city’s breweries including Beavertown, Hackney or Hammerton. There are also guest beers on draught, plus 25 by the bottle. The wine list, starting under £20, is chosen with unusual skill and sold at exceptionally low mark ups. If there’s a pub in north London selling wines this good at such affordable prices, I have yet to hear of it.
The Bedford Tavern has quality by the bucketful. And don’t the locals already know it.
