Tasty tapas, friendly service

I go to Borjia every weekend without fail. It is quite simply the best high-end venue in Northampton: good music, nice people, great atmosphere - that's the trifecta! This week, for a change, I went early and tried the tapas. Some of the dishes were a little spicy for my palate, but the duck spring... read more

Awesome little bar that does cracking drinks and is nice n quirky inside. Door staff attitude let's it down though, so be prepared for frosty reception. Otherwise would be higher score.

Nice building and layout like an old theater. Gets busy late until then feels a bit awkward as place has big dance floor in the middle and everyone sits on the outside circle. Ok prices ok drinks quality, friendly staff.

This was one of our best nights out. I booked this for my wife's 60th birthday and what a great venue. Rachelle and her team really pulled the stops out and made it a really memorable night. Our friends couldn't have been more complimentary about the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. Food was great and the fish and chip... More

Great venue, looks amazing inside and out But are they doing enough? I've been in a few times but whenever I'm out its not the first place I want to go. My advice would be - be known for something amazing "the best cocktails" "the best service" "the greatest theme nights" "the best music" At the moment I see this... More

I went here yesterday for a friend's surprise birthday party. . The pictures make the place much bigger and better than it was. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and offered prosecco on arrival...The DJ wasn't that great & messed up the surprise because she did not cut the music! But was a great night due to the company.... More

superssonic, Manager at Borjia, responded to this review

Borjia does pride itself on the quality of the service and food that it serves and has queried whether that review is genuine, given that Borjia only catered for that one party on Saturday and the party organiser had praised the quality of the food, service and the setting. In addition, the party organiser also said to the duty manager... More

I sadly can't give you an opinion of how great this place is for food and drink as I've only visited it during the annual Heritage Open Days event. The owner of the bar has renovated this fantastic building with the same kind of love, care and attention to detail that characterised its original creation. The building was commissioned by...
