This was our second year choosing this perfect venue for our annual meal together. Not really sure what to choose we asked the proprietor to choose for us. We loved the variety of dishes that suited different preferences for meat, veg and fish. Delicious food served in a lovely friendly ambience, giving us another night to remember.

Lovely food, beer and wine. Excellent service from TBF Team. Try the Spanish pigs in blankets and Lamb with Aubergine.

Spending an evening at The Bowl Full never fails to impress me. The atmosphere is spot on, the staff are friendly and attentive and the food is tasty and varied. My particular favourite is the pork cheeks braised in cider which melt in your mouth. If it's Tapas that you seek then look no further.

Food was superb, service was attentive and friendly. Being quite compact the atmosphere is lovely, friendly and relaxed. Food was great especially the prawns, beef cheeks and the chorizo pigs in blankets.

Worth booking as it get full and is only small. Lovely atmosphere and lovely staff. Food was excellent starting with a sharing platter on meats, cheeses and breads and choosing an array of dishes for mains all to share between us. A lovely place to spend an evening would recommend highly and will return soon.

This was my first visit to The Bowl Full and it ticked every box. My sister booked the whole resturant for her 40th. There was a lot of people to cater for at the same time which sometimes can prove tricky with a large party but the staff were just amazing, happy, friendly, helpful all through the evening and the...
