About Bar Bodega

Bodega is the perfect place for every over-25, a quirky 1920’s speakeasy meets jazz club that offers a welcome that is akin to a long, hot bath after a rough day. Discover a rare find of mature drinkers and enjoy chilled-out evenings of table service and conversation whilst dining on our delicious food. The food we serve is fresh, quality produce with a theme for sharing. Come in, relax and choose a bottle from the extensive wine list, select a specialty beer or one of our spectacular liquors, you’ll find it’s midnight before you know it. We very much hope to see you soon. Cheers!

we had a table reserved and it wasn’t very busy in there that evening so table service would have been a nice touch. But all in all a great place to drink

Slightly concerned that the starters arrived and we could see our mains on the side also waiting to be brought over. 5 minutes later these arrived but we we had only just started the starters and they sat there cold

We ordered food but unfortunately as there was only a couple of staff members on the food took over an hour then arrived cold. The party I was out with never normally complain, but on this occasion we did. The staff were extremely apologetic (I felt terrible complaining) and immediately remade our food and gave us complimentary Prosecco. It was a real shame that the staff felt so much pressure... I’ve been to Bodega’s before and never had any issues. The staff were very responsive which was great.

I love Bodegas! The venue is cosy, the staff are always helpful an attentive, and it’s one of the very few places that you can get a decent glass of wine in Watford. Unfortunately it does seem to be getting quieter and quieter - the night we visited, there were only 3 tables occupied, at 9/10pm on a Friday night. I feel that the new bar, Florist, is taking some business, which is sad. I feel that if Bodegas had some live music events, they could get busy again, as Watford is lacking in quality live music venues

This was our Second Christmas event at Bodega’s and like last time we all enjoyed the experience. The manager and staff were fantastic and made sure the whole evening went smoothly. One of our guest is a coeliac and once we mentioned this at a late stage the manager and the chef made sure there was a good selection which was impressive. Thank you!
