Good fun place,, cocktails pretty good, well served and presented, reasonable food menu, but seating for meals a little dull, can get get crowded, look out for the stag/hen parties which can prove a little too much

Called for cocktails on a Saturday afternoon and studied the meal menu. Chatted with the staff and said we would be back that evening to dine as we were all looking forward to tasting the food. When we arrived at 7.45 were absolutely devastated to find that they were not serving food at all as "they were too busy in... More

Thanks for your review Last Saturday we had 2 large pre-booked groups dining in the areas which we set aside specifically for food tables, which are in the back room and also in our upstairs lounge. Meaning only the front bar area was available. On Saturdays, we need to keep areas separate for people dining- because to be honest, in... More

What a warm welcoming and extremely atmospheric bar - this place is a must. Decor perfect, staff very welcoming and attentive, and the whole atmosphere is spot on. Don't miss a visit to this charismatic warm and friendly bar 👍

Thanks very much for your kind words! We like to keep a friendly, relaxed atmosphere at our team level and I think this transcends on to the Guest experience also.

Called in here one week and had a pint of lager and it was awful. It tasted disgusting as though the lines needed cleaning. Anyway i gave them the benefit and tried a different lager the week after, but again it was rancid. We actually left it, and at five pound a pint, well we wont be going back.

Thanks for your review, Andy. I apologise the lager wasn't up to standard on your visit. Had you let the bar staff know we would've happily replaced it or offered an alternative for you It's not the norm for people to complain about the freshness of our draught beer, as we sell an awful lot for a bar of our...

We were a large group of women on a hen party and had Josh leading the class. He was fabulous at keeping everyone entertained and not letting the banter descend into chaos. Unlike many classes, Bobo Lobo had enough equipment for everyone to make their cocktails at once and allowed everyone time to drink up, we weren't rushed at all.... More

An ad hoc visit discovered this great tapas bar. Best calamari since being abroad, lovley brie and chutney. Philly wrap (no problem doctoring to suit my tastes, added jalapeño) and very special chips plus great monitor.

It was really great looking after you guys, thanks for your kind comments. Your calamari, in addition to pretty much every thing else we serve is homemade on a daily basis, so I'm glad you are able to taste the difference! It was also refreshing to host a couple with such good music tastes as yourselves! Thanks for enjoying our... More
