Sunday Lunch with friends

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... read more

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 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

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.

We visited the Bocca bar on the 4/1/13. On arrival we were greeted by the door supervisors, who were friendly, and helpful. The atmosphere was excellent, and very relaxed, and we had some lovely bubbly, and the staff are very friendly. The dj was playing some good tunes, and not too loud, so you can still have a conversation with... More
