Our Monthly Pizza Specials are created using seasonal produce and we try to source this as locally as possible. They change every month so don’t miss out on some unique and temptingly yummy options.

Each month we devise a Gin Specials menu, offering a mix of artisan and classic gins complemented by delicately selected tonics and lovingly garnished with some of the more unusual pretties than our standard gin and tonics. Dive in before a whole new selection appears!

JAMES MORTON EXHIBITION

James Morton V1.jpg

Exhibition runs 3rd September - 11th November

James Morton’s work evolves from an interest in people and a basic need to capture an expression at a given moment. James uses old photographs of people in everyday life, and the people he sees around him. Aiming to depict a vunerability, or melancholy, these paintings often take on an ethereal quality. Although each painting starts from an image, the relationship between the marks takes over from the original photo, which is then rarely referenced again during the painting process. James uses gestural mark-making; manouvering the paint with different tools to manipulate the surface, creating definition and texture, and pushing and pulling different features to the forefront of the painting to obtain balance.


 

GOLD!

We are thrilled to have been awarded a Gold Taste of The West Award to add to our collection.

A big round of applause for all our hard working staff.

Zero Waste Spirit

We are now using Bristol Dry Gin & Vodka as our house spirits. They are delivered in 25 litre containers which we decant into glass bottles. The big containers are then refilled and the process begins again, so creating zero waste.

WE’RE A COOL GANG – NOW WITH AIR CON!

Our newly installed air conditioning is already chilling our customers and staff so no more sweltering in the heat at Bocabar.

It will also warm us all up in the Winter but let’s not think about that yet ;)
