Bears & Tales, Bedford

Delicious, expertly made fresh cocktails served from Bedford's premier independent cocktail joint.

Weekend Escapes

Sometimes there’s nothing better than an exceptionally made White Russian in a small but perfectly formed cocktail bar. Thankfully, if you’re strolling through the St Cuthberts area of Bedford on an evening, you can get exactly that at atmospheric and inviting Bears & Tales.

The bar has been creating gorgeous cocktails since 2014 and because space is tight, the team have a pre-booking and table service system to ensure all guests get the experience they deserve. Head barman Tom Faden has come up with some delicious concoctions: Tie Mai Thai and Bruised Apple are favourites with the bar’s local fanbase and they do a fab takeaway service, should you want to impress your friends with your (fake) mixology skills at home.
