“Appalling service walked out”
Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

We went to this restaurant and walked in and was told just to pick a table. Despite there being 6 visible members of staff working we sat for 20 mins without so much as a hello or any drinks. The final straw was when one staff member walked in and sat about 3 foot away at the bar and opened his sand which and was texting. We then left again without so much as a word. Can only assume they are used to people walking out

There loss of £100

“Lively Bar, central location”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We stopped off at Bodega for drinks after a meal out and enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar. It was lively without being noisy and the drinkers were of all ages.

It occupies a central location just set back from the main road.

The main attraction of Bodega is the large and comprehensive menu of world beers it sells! Too many to name here but very appealing if you like your lagers!

Definitely worth a visit.

“Very average”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Average tapas restaurant serving average food. We had a couple of beers in the bar before our meal and the atmosphere was very good and extremely lively. When we were took up to our table the setting was not as nice and a bit shabby.

The service was intermittent and food very average at best, but in fairness others sitting nearby did seem to enjoy the food. I would definitely return to the bar, but probably give the restaurant a miss.

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great selection of beers, wines and spirits but most important friendly staff roaring fire and very good ambience. Very good value with a pint of lager and B/C £6.90 which I though was reasonable
