Best when busy

We were attracted by the family friendly attitude (Kids are welcome until 9.30pm) and the great selection of pizza on offer.

My partner visited Bocca Bar after reading interesting reviews online. The atmosphere was very warm and welcoming and the decor was lovely. We bought a couple of beers and the most delicious nuts I have tasted! Unfortunately the staff made us a bit uncomfortable as they were bickering. One barman was not fully pulling his weight and was sat behind... More

Visited Sunday afternoon. Place overrun with babies and toddlers. Toddlers running around and parents had no regard for other diners. Very crèche like. I really didn't like that. Very nice food. Good service.

Monday evening with 5 girlfriends and restaurant not busy so would have expected better service. Bit offish when taking drinks order at Bar. Later I asked a member of staff behind the counter to tell me what something was from the deli display counter and they just shrugged saying they didn't know which I didn't really think was very satisfactory....

There's a great atmosphere in this large open plan bar & restaurant. With welcoming old leather sofas & comfy chairs. Amazing pizzas & Sunday lunches. Good choice of beer. Attracting a nice mix of locals.

I visited Bocca Bar based on a recommendation of a Local, who took me there for the Famous Sunday Roast. The atmosphere was great, so casual and comfy particularly on a raining autumn day, as it was when I visited. The food was fantastic, a little on the pricey side but all good quality. I was a little disappointed the... More

I went here with my girlfriends to complete a well deserved weekend away without husbands and children, it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was relaxed with a quirky vibe. The food was so delicious, I had the roast beef with all the trimmings. The gravy was exceptional. Everything was cooked to perfection, I just wish I'd had room for pudding!... More

Impromptu visit turned into a great evening out. Pretty good pizza, beer and vodka and great atmosphere, buzzed.

Always a great pizza and a good atmosphere. Been going for years now, it's really the only 'local' for us. Family friendly, but a shame they don't allow dogs into the bar area, most places do these days, so that's my only real criticism.
