Notice of temporary closure for The Bedford Academy

To our valued customers, many of whom we call friends. Under the current health crisis and uncertainty we have decided to close. This we feel is the most responsible thing until this hidden enemy, COVID 19 has been controlled. The decision to do this did not come lightly but in the end we know we wanted to be a part of the solution as opposed to potentially contributing to the problem. The sooner everyone takes this type of action the sooner it will be over.

From all of us at The Bedford Academy we wish you and yours safety and good health in the coming days. See you all soon!

Our goal and mandate over the years has been to "resist the ordinary" and provide our customers with a casual, friendly and eclectic environment.

We purchased this gracious mansion in 1996 from its former owners the Toronto Ladies' Club. Over the years we have restored and transformed this historic home into what has become a favourite destination in the Annex and the Bloor and Bedford area . Our goal and mandate has been to "resist the ordinary" and provide our customers with a casual, friendly and eclectic environment. Our promise is to deliver food, local craft beer, spirits and wine with a twist as we strive to be a little different in what we offer in our gastropub fair.
