A new Leamington venue, Bedford Street, will be supporting Leamington-based charity, The Pam Britton Trust for Dementia, at its launch on March 12.

The owners of the Bedford Street have injected a breath of fresh air into the venue with an edgy, industrial themed makeover and a strong jazz vibe.

General manager Matthew Dellapia said: “We have invested a substantial amount of money, drive and commitment into Bedford Street. We feel that nothing like it exists in the area, currently.

“We aim to offer people a great new place in the centre of town offering breakfast, lunch and dinners and then turning into a late bar in the evenings with live music at the weekends at affordable prices.”

The venue has had a substantial five figure investment and has created 12 new jobs, with plans to expand the team further after the installation of a Bulmers garden, launching in May, which will help bring the outdoor experience to a new level.

Bedford Street (the old Coach & Horses premises) will be one of only 50 venues nationwide to have a Bulmers Garden.

It hopes to support its local community by sourcing its ingredients and drinks locally, wherever possible.

In addition, Bedford Street will be supporting local dementia charity, The Pam Britton Trust for Dementia, by holding a charity raffle giving guests a chance to win a bottle of luxury Champagne. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the charity.

The new venue, with its 
exposed brick walls and 
industrial-style lighting, is modern and edgy with a sense of fun injected into it with some quirky features.

By day it will cater to the breakfast and lunch crowds, and by evening, the bar and live entertainment will become the main features.

Unique to Leamington, Bedford Street will be a stylish and quality venue for evening crowds or anyone wanting to enjoy a relaxed evening out in the town, with an extensive drinks selection, sharing style-food platters and smaller dishes for people to enjoy with a bottle of wine or cocktails while they enjoy entertainment from some great live jazz acts and local bands.
