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.

    I booked for lunch for a large family group (mixture of vegetarians, gluten free and fussy eaters!) for my daughter's 8th birthday. The menu was extensive and interesting and we all left very full and very happy. Our waitress said that she was normally one of the chefs and was helping out but she was fantastic and we were really well looked after. I couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate with the family. Many thanks.

    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!

    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...
