We come here alot because we love the pizzas and the atmosphere, with the twinkly lights. We booked for valentines day and we were not disappointed. Our pizzas came out in the shape of a heart, such a lovely idea!

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.

    Great local venue for my birthday treat with the family. Good food and excellent service. A bit pricy but worth it.

    Great, relaxed atmosphere and the food was excellent... really good roasts! Shame there was only a choice of 2 meats, plus the greens were rock hard (especially the broccoli) but all in all it was a great meal! We will definitely go again...

    We very much enjoyed the experience of having lunch at the Bristol Bocabar, never having been before we were recommended it by a man from Bristol Blue Glass. The atmosphere was great with lots of young people (and babies) and we didn't mind waiting for our food as we had lots to talk about. The staff were friendly and attentive. It was good to see the food was locally sourced.

    Very friendly and helpful waitress with just the right amount of attentiveness. Amazing Pizza's and great salad, lovely atmosphere and quirky/cool look. When we got to the restaurant, we decided that the bar area was a better option for us as we were feeling more casual than smart. The waitress said it was not a problem and helped us move tables. My 9 year old son was not very happy moving to the bar area at first, as there were speakers over our table and the music was loud. The restaurant area was quite. They don't serve people in the bar area, but the waitress said as they were not busy, she would. Great place. Will go again.

    Great food.. slightly pricey.

    After eating here several years ago we were very disappointed. Despite not being very busy the tables were dirty and the service was slow. The 'vegan' dessert apparently contained milk and the waiter did not understand my request for vegetables without butter on them! Sadly we will not return.
