Lovely atmosphere and a fantastic pint.... Well deserved after a long walk with the little one... The food that I have seen looks lovely. Also they do serve non-alcoholic beer which is a definite bonus

Just popped in here for a couple of drinks on Saturday lunchtime and ended up staying much longer than planned. In fact if we hadn't have had a dinner reservation at the hotel we were staying at we probably would have stayed much longer. The atmosphere, choice of drinks and food were all excellent. Food a little pricey, but delicious.... More

On Saturday we went to look at property in Bowness and popped in to the Bodega for the first time, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, good variety of tapas at reasonable prices, cosy fire and as far as first impressions are concerned, very enjoyable, will definitely be back

Went to the Bodega Tapas bar on a cold January night after walking around the town for a while trying to decide where to go. We ended up returning this place after sampling the hospitality of the bar downstairs for couple of hours. Out one door and quite literally back in another. The restaurant was busy, but staff were friendly... More

Only spending one night in Bowness on the way home, and surprised to find this little gem. Range of choices, competitively priced and large range of beers and cocktails. Food was lovely, nicely presented and good value for money. Nice to eat in a very touristy area and not be ripped off. Recommended 😀

Came here with my husband on my Birthday. The fajitas and mini burgers are delicious as are the cocktails! It gets busy in here and the lack of seating might have you stood around for a while. The only negative was at around 6pm they decided to turn the music up really loud so it was hard to hear each... More
