I've had lots of good meals at the Paintworks Bocabar (pre-Covid) so thought we would try Finzels Reach. We felt that the 'lockdown' version of Bocabar was disappointing. Eating at 11, there was very little choice, and the food was pretty basic. Under normal circs there is a wide choice of breakfast/brunch/cakes etc. (I can see that it does say this on the website, which I didn't look at before visiting - but it also says cakes are available from 11, but I believe the table menu said later). Ordering via the app was straightforward, but the table menu offered granary bread which was not available on the app. Our tea arrived cold, which was swiftly replaced once a replacement was asked for, but initially disappointing. The outside area was very pleasant in the sun (apart from being very windy which I won't hold Bocabar responsible for!). I'll definitely return based on past experiences, but not at the moment.

I was disappointed by the way were made to feel when we arrived. It was my birthday and I had mentioned this when I booked.This was never acknowledge while we were there. We asked if we could have a table in the sun (which was empty) and were told we couldn’t. We were then sat in the shade and watched while a booking that came in 5mins after us were given this table. When we queried this the server just gave us some speech about how rigid the tables were booked. But as far as I could see they came in at roughly the same time as us and left at the same time. My son had calzone and asked as is usual when serving Italian food in restaurants if he could have some Parmesan cheese for the top. The server returned with the tiniest thimble size paper cup of cheese and the card machine and said he had to pay for it! It was a joke and very embarrassing. It didn’t ruin my birthday but the way we were treated and spoken to did leave me feeling disappointed and upset on what should of been a nice occasion.

Not your fault but It was very cold so more or better heaters and/or blankets in colder months - probably won’t be relevant going forward anyway as we’ll be indoors

We had a very enjoyable visit and the food was tasty, nice range of wine and beers, all at a reasonable price. Lovely atmosphere under the canvas with the gas heaters. Quick and efficient service. Will come again.

Had a lovely time. The restaurant feels very Covid safe. The seating area is very comfortable and well spaced out. Some seats are under cover and others aren't It is very easy to order using the app and the food and drinks arrived promptly. The service was very good and all staff are wearing masks. The menu is good and the pizzas we ordered were delicious and very reasonably priced. Will definitely go again.

Worst dining experience of my life It was terrible from start to finish. Our table was from 8.30 and weren’t informed prior or when we got there that they closed at 10. Their ordering system was abysmal and took forever to use and they got our drinks order wrong several times. The worst part was a waitress who was the rudest person I’ve ever met. One of the pizzas hadn’t come and when it was queried we were met with nothing but attitude. The waitress went on to call us liars, said we hadn’t ordered it and then said the kitchen was closed and “what was she going to do about it”. When we said she was being rude and was wrong, she then went on the defensive and argued with us. Later on they were then overheard giggling about it with other waitresses. All she had to do was say she would go check where it is. If you don’t like people and are rude then don’t choose to work in a service industry! Even when we told the manager, she didn’t quite seem to believe us either and questioned what had happened. They then proceeded to push us out before 10. Overall, communication and service were dire and the food was average at best.

App for ordering drinksand food didn't work for all 4 of us. Waitress was annoyed that she had to take our order manually and didn't seem to believe that we all couldn't order using the app.
