“Just ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Bocabar is perfect for Glastonbury, the set up is nice the decor is great and I think I'd really enjoy out-staying my welcome there having drunk too much lager! That said, I've been there a couple of times and the food is just ok, the service varies but isn't awful. Overall, looks great, promises a lot but delivers mid table...although occasionally they get top 4 with some very good sweets!!

“Life saver for Premier Inn guests”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

For me that's the main point, it's only a 3 minute walk from the Premier Inn on Morlands Road (Morlands Enterprise Park) and it's a considerable improvement on the Brewers Fayre.
I paid this urban style restaurant a quick visit on Saturday evening, I was lucky to get a late booking and by 7.30 it was filling up quickly.
I found the ambience casual and friendly yet there was a bustle - people were clearly enjoying themselves.
The staff were friendly, helpful and service was prompt. The menu was quite unusual and contained some interesting looking vegetarian options - overall quite enough for the average punter.
I had the filo prawns which were very nice followed by medium/rare rib-eye steak - quite well prepared (for an English restaurant) although perhaps one fifth of it was rather gristly. The meal was completed by a very pleasant raspberry and apple creme brûlée, a pint of beer and a coffee - all for £36 - very reasonable.
So this is a no brainer, when ever I'm staying at that Premier Inn, the Bocabar will be my restaurant of choice.
[It gets a 4 rating cos I was so relieved not to have to eat at Brewers Fayre :) ]

“Edgy, Urban Regeneration and Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Jolly good food at a reasonable price in this well judged space of urban regeneration - the only place we eat in Glastonbury.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Plenty of choice on the interesting menu. The food was delicious; it was nice to have plenty of vegetarian choices alongside the carnivorous options and not just as an afterthought. Relaxed and stylish surroundings.

“Fantastic meal, great vegetarian choices.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Had a fantastic meal for 4 last night. Very reasonably priced, great atmosphere and service and very unusual vegetarian choices. My friend who is a vegetarian was very impressed with the number of things she could have on the menu. Would definitely recommend this place.
