We always come to the bodega bar every time we come on holiday to bowness. We ended up 7 days in a row for a couple of drinks and had tapas twice. The tapas was lovely and there is a wide selection of beers and the cocktails are amazing. Can't wait till the next time we go back.

On a short stay in the Lakes came across this little place when walking back to our hotel, busy with people outside drinking and soaking up the sunshine, nice friendly atmosphere, we were seated upstairs to eat, friendly staff, fantastic food and plenty off it, get there early so you can guarantee a seat

Called in here for a beer and a glass of bubbly. Excellent wine list and extensive choice of beers. We didn't eat here but the choice of tapas and sharing platters was impressive - wish we had one on our doorstep! Highly recommended and we will be back to sample the food sometime and more of the alcohol!!!

Have been to Bodega twice before on our visits to Bowness, and had to return as we all love the food here , especially the pork ribs in BBQ sauce. We had a good variety and tried some different dishes , had 10 dishes between 4 of us , which was just right. The service, decor and atmosphere are all... More

I loved the selection of beers (esp Leffe on Draught!) - staff very friendly. We went in a few times on our trip and always tried out the Tapas which was excellent.

We decided to try the tapas bar instead of our usual Indian cuisine as a change. And we were not disappointed. We had been before for a drink in the bar and this time decided to stay and eat. We arrived quite early just before 7 and there were a couple of tables taken up. BY 7.30 every table was... More

We arrived quite late just 10 mins before 22:00 so the waitress was asking us to order the food as soon as possible which we did. We ordered the paella which was cold (not even room temperature), potatoes with Parma Ham and fried eye which turned out to be chips with cooked bacon and fried egg on top similar to... More

We've stayed in Windermere before and went to the bar downstairs and their Mojitos are awesome, so we thought we'd give the restaurant a try this time and it did not disappoint. The food is really good, excellent choice and really really good, as well as reasonably priced. The waitresses were efficient and friendly, couldn't fault it really, will definitely... More
