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!
Best bar in Watford.
Best bar by far in Watford! Great food, great atmosphere, good prices. We love it. The live band evenings are great... More dates please!
All round an excellent experience and fantastic bank holiday weekend entertainment with a band. To add to the perfectness of our visit to bodega Prosecco at only £10 a bottle!!!
Visiting for FF band and the atmsophere was incredible. Staff where very friendly and service was fab!
We had Sunday roast with some friends and the food was fantastic! Absolutely faultless!
Fantastic night, great food & bubbles a TENNER!!!!!! Fantastic staff too! Thank you Bar Bodega x
Wonderful service, helpful and friendly staff
Hi Natasha, Thank you so much for your wonderful review, I'm glad you had such a great night with us.
lots to like, just a little pricey
I know its my age, but I found it a little too dark, to read the Menu
18th of December our works Christmas lunch from West Herts College enjoyed our experience at Bodega service was good food good we will be back next year we also had the place to ourselves with 26 of us it was great! Thank you.
Fantastic roast dinner, service and ambience. Well worth a visit.
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!
Excellent evening and staff were very good and attentive
I hadn’t been here for a couple of years and even though it’s a still a fab night out, I thought the service (although friendly) was lacking we had a table of 10 in years gone by you would normally get table service but this wasn’t available in fact despite having a table reserved no one came over not even for food or even a welcome. We did get food it was nice and good value I had reserved the the Xmas buffet with the table but we had to order from the standard menu apparently it was a mistake with the booking system. I’ve got no axe to grind it’s a great night out but the staff seemed to be lacking a leader and direction.
We had a lovely Christmas meal here for our team night out - everything was fantastic! Thank you!
We had another amazing night at Bodega - we can't thank you enough!
We were well looked after by attentive staff who even provided us with late cheese boards! Always a pleasant evening at Bodega
We were a group of 25 and we were all very well looked after. Freddie, Adam and Rowan were extremely helpful and made sure everyone had a very enjoyable evening. Highly recommended.
Booked table for 6.45 as we wanted to order some food I.e the snack bits .... thought it shut at 8.45 as it had done before .. very disappointed that it closed at 7 so we couldn't eat.. so we had 1 drink and left to go somewhere else .. man serving our drinks was really nice and apologetic .. shame as we loved eating here .. Will have to go elsewhere now on our Sunday out ....
Really not recommended we waited near 2 x hours for our food will never go back...food wasn't great either...there only saving grace was Dan who tried his bed...

Hey Nat Thank you for you review. It's lovely to read how much you enjoyed your experience at Bodega. We hope to see you again soon! Cheers!

Hey Mr Thompson! Thank you for your kind review. You'll be pleased to hear that Sundays have really picked up and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Thank you again for your comments. They make what we do so worthwhile. Cheers!
I came here for some work drinks and reserved an area of the bar, everyone had a great night! The bar is spacious, lively, and has a warm atmosphere. Even though the staff were busy due to it being a Friday night, it was nice that they came over to the table to take our orders on a few separate ocassions, whether that being food or drink orders. I will definitely be back!
Hi Olivia What a lovely review! Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. Fridays are very busy indeed and our job is to ensure you receive attentive service however busy we are. It's lovely to hear that we were offering the service that we know our customers expect. We hope to see you again very soon. Cheers!
I have been going to bodegas now with 11 years and not once have I had a bad evening there. Unfortunatly I haven’t been there for about 2 years as I have moved away and organised an evening there on Friday as a surprise for my wife. We had a few friends as well and from the moment we entered to when we left it was a disaster. The service was shocking, the food was even worse. When the served the food I asked what the dish was and she said ‘I don’t know I was only too to give it to u’ and the. Continued back behind the bar serving drinks. We handed back 7 dishes due to them being uncooked. The restaurant wasn’t even busy. The staff were rude when we asked for drinks one even said it’s my first evening what do you expect. Really really disappointed as I know this is not the way bodegas operate or any of there restaurants. I’ll be slow in returning
Hi William I really am so very sorry to hear about your visit to Bodega. I have emailed you a detailed apology. Thank you for your loyalty over the years and I look forward to welcoming you back to Bodega soon. Cheers! Jason
