I went to Bedford & Strand on a Monday evening on the strength of the SquareMeal 1-star rating. I was disappointed. The dining area was half empty and barely cut off from the noisy, echoey bar. The “white-clothed tables” were actually covered in paper. My foie gras starter was the size of 4 two-pence pieces stacked up together, whilst my companion's starter, the greek salad, had so much rocket that she couldn't finish it. The main courses were unexciting (and top dish £18 for a rib-eye steak?) and my companion's first choice was off, so she opted for the day's special (Mussels). This was off too. So we both went for a shepherd's pie. This was OK as far as it went. The bill was reasonable at £30 per head, excl wine. So Bedford & Strand is OK as a pre-theatre bistro, but is not for “dining out”.
