I booked a party of 16 people for a special occasion as a tapas place in town was full and I had heard good reports. I was not disappointed. We got the set menu at £15 per person and there was so many delicious dishes served. The owners were friendly and very accommodating especially as we had a few coeliacs... More

Living in the area for years I had visited this little restaurant frequently and enjoyed the menu, but after moving away I had not been for a long time. I had heard a former work colleague had taken it on as a Tapas bar, so we organised a retirement do for one of our friends at work. What can I... More

We had a really lovely time at The Bowl Full Tapas Bar. The food was excellent and very good value. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners Karl and Annemarie. It was nice to see fresh anchovies on the menu and I hope that Karl will take on my suggestion of serving them with condensed milk. “Anchoas con leche... More

The menu is fantastic and there is a great choice of Tapas. We took our 2 children aged 4 and 7 they enjoyed the whole experience and the staff made them feel at home! The service and speed at which the food arrived was spot on, and we didn't feel rushed. All the dishes we delicious and I'm looking forward... More

It was the best food I've had in years. We started out with a cheese and meat platter for 2 (there where 3 of us) and that was amazing to see all the different meats and cheeses for Spain. Then we just ordered some food and shared it amongst ourselves and everything was cooked to perfection. The chorizo wasn't chewy... More

Generally the English don't do Tapas very well. I used to visit San Sebastian regularly and have been thoroughly spoilt in this department. The Bowl Full though is the closest I've experienced in the UK. Fantastic choice, great service, good wine and excellent food. Even my much wiser and normally sober guide through life got a little tiddly, it must... More

What a lovely "date night" we had on Friday night! A rare night without the children, we were grateful for the relaxed and intimate setting. The evening flowed at a pace that was haste free, giving us plenty of time to talk to each other in between delicious morsels of food and washed down with a quaff-able jug of Sangria... More
