Housed in a massive converted red brick warehouse, Bocabar Bristol is an award-winning cornerstone of the city's popular Printworks district. Inside, the sweeping 10-foot bar serves up all kinds of local and international beers and cocktails, while live jazz and world music creates a buzzing ambience.

The Bocabar menu is extensive, with a great selection of salad and deli options served at the enticing deli counter during the day. Speciality stone-baked pizzas are the main focus of the menu, with the dough made fresh on the premises every day. Toppings include Somerset ham, smoked applewood cheese, roasted mixed peppers and spicy Italian pepperoni. There are also gourmet bar snacks to share, like warm cheddar and broccoli sausage roll with spicy chipotle ketchup.

Sunday roasts at Bocabar in Bristol are a huge draw, with the open-plan feel of the restaurant creating a buzzing, convivial atmosphere that's perfect for group meals. The selection of beers at the bar includes local lagers and ales, while the cocktail menu features crowd-pleasing favourites.

With twinkling fairy lights and vaulted ceilings, Bocabar Bristol is a stunning, fuss-free setting to enjoy casual dining with live music. Bristol Meads Rail Station is a 4-minute drive away.

    We had a lovely family meal at the weekend - 3 children aged 4-10 and 2 parents who wanted good food in a relaxed atmosphere - we got it all at Bocabar. We have already recommended you to a number of friends. There was so much choice on the menu but the burger I picked was everything I wanted it to be. My children gorged themselves on their pizzas, and the drinks selection was good too. Loved it!

    I absolitely lobed the decor and ambience, staff were extremely professional and polite. Your prices are a bit in the high end for the amount of food but the quality was superb, thank you for such a nive experience

    We all enjoyed our meals and the service was very good. Loved my non alcoholic raspberry cocktail drink.

    We've eaten here a few times before and had much better experiences than this one. We pre-booked a table for eight and called to say we'd be 5 minutes late. The service was painfully slow this time. It took a long time for our orders to be taken and we'd been there for nearly an hour and half before our meals finally arrived on the table. The food itself was quite nice but not worth waiting that long for. No communication at all from staff during the wait. Bit poor to be honest.

    Cool place. Decent sized portions and good flavour, the Pizzas were off the chain especially the goats cheese and sweet potato one!

    My only gripe was we had 4 different people serving us in the end which I didn't like. They were all pleasant enough but I prefer to deal with one person as it feels more personal and makes for better dining experience. We asked the third for the desserts menu and it didn't arrive so we had to go and find one for ourselves.
