Toast Gin & Cocktail Bar – A gem of a find on the vibrant new Bedford Riverside complex

A beautiful interior with a distinct ‘peaky blinders’ era feel to it with its brickwork and exposed ironworks décor and  staff dressed in flat caps and braces.

The service is fabulous and the staff very attentive, taking time to help you make the right choice from the large array of finest Gin’s and unique cocktails and mocktails available. The staff are also extremely knowledgeable and seem to really enjoy explaining the history and ingredients of the quality drinks and premium mixers on sale.


To compliment the drinks there is a simple menu on offer including enormous sharing food platters both meat, vegetarian and vegan available, toasties and nibbles such as mixed nuts, Chorizo sausages, marinated olives and flatbread and hummus. There are also various teas and coffees on the boards.









For the serious connoisseur or even just a fun night out why not try a Gin tasting class or cocktail making? The groups are no larger than 6 and include a glass of Prosecco on arrival, the tasting of 6 specially selected Gins, an understanding of the history and the Gin making process, antipasti and a Gin and tonic of your preference. The classes are 2 hours long.


The onsite bottle shop offers a much wider range of Gin for purchase compared to normal off licences so why not treat yourself or a loved one to something really special.


Toast is open 7 Days a week and host a number of events throughout the year which always prove extremely popular. It is also available for private hire from parties of 5 people to 180 people with an array of options to suit any celebration or event.
