Nice cocktails, friendly staff, decent value drinks. Unfortunately the mushroom and truffle burger which we both ordered completely fell apart and wasn't very nice.

The food was good but there was a lengthly time waiting for the food. This may not be the normal character of the venue and it was short staffed.
Polite service in any case, worth a visit

Food was really nice, although someone in my party did have poached eggs and they were basically hard boiled, but aside from that, great place.

We have been waiting extremely long for a few bottles of beer, what is unusual for Bobo. In general, we’ve all had a good time. Thank you

Slightly disappointing experience. Not the greatest service, a bit chaotic, the food could be a bit warmer especially that the restaurant was cold (the entrance door was wide open till we asked if it was possible to close the door). Even coffees were not nice made. I’ve been a regular there but this was by far the least enjoyable experience.

ideal place to for a fast supper with my nephew (adult!) - he enjoyed his burger with peanut butter - which he said was nice, 'though "unusual! Salmon was tasty with lovely crisp skin. Friendly efficient service.

This was my second time going to Bobo Social and I'm shocked at the different quality of my experiences. We were seated at least 15 minutes before anyone came to take our order. After that, drinks arrived another 15 minutes later, at which point we were told the kitchen was busy, and food would also be delayed. Find it odd that the kitchen was overloaded as half the tables were open and we had made a booking that morning, so could see that there was plenty of availability. When the food finally came, our two burgers were well done (we asked for them rare) and the poached eggs had nearly fully cooked egg yolks, barely runny. We also had to go inside to ask for cutlery, which arrived several minutes later. We should have left then but decided to stay for a second round of drinks and the old fashioned was mostly bitters, so unpleasant. Wasn't even worth complaining to the manager, since the staff so rarely came to our table.

Hi Aubrey, sorry to read your visit to Bobo wasn't up to your first visit. I would always recommend discussing issues with the manager who can resolve issue there and then. We did offer your dining companion a complimentary tab for you both after his google review but he didn't take us up on it. There is not much more I can do but apologise and we will take the review to the team to improve our experience. Regards, Poppy.

Bobo is a good staple. It has been open for awhile now and it would me good if they updated their menu and did more season changes other then just the watermelon salad. The menu has barely changed since opening.

Our second visit and definitely not the last one! The arrival was very welcoming. The friendly hostess promptly offered lovely table by the window. Service was efficient and not rushed. The food - amazing- especially lamb croquettes, which I’ve tried in a few places, but Bobo’s ones are the best. We ordered cocktails and despite the fact that they took longer than anticipated ( the only negative) we really enjoyed them.
Bobo’s menu offers vegan option too which is great as my partner loves plant based cuisine. Overall very enjoyable visit. We’ll be back soon :)
