Four friends visited the Tapas Bar unexpectedly on a Thursday evening and it was packed by 8 p.m. We shared several tapas which were delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful. I think this is a great place for the young at heart.

This first floor facility is wonderful, for not only does it provide an excellent kids menu, but there are a wide range of playthings. Keeps the little one happy, in a safe environment, while grand-dad enjoys lunch!

We visited on a busy friday night. The Roost fit us in when they were full and we really enjoyed the night. Good food, good service too.

Very friendly manager, delicious paella (meat and vegetarian), gorgeous nibbles and well-priced house wine. Waiting staff a bit haphazard (disappeared for ages into the kitchen); our bill (which took ages to request) given to the wrong table. That said, definitely want to return to try other things on the menu as this was during first month of their opening.

We saw this place on the way to our holiday & purposely drove back to it on route home for a tapas lunch....... What a disappointment ! The food was certainly not the best, but the staff made the whole experience worse. Ok they were pleasant & a little attentive although a bit slow. But they're knowledge of the menu,... More

Right from calling in to book a table for the evening, we formed a very good impression. Helpful, friendly and courteous staff, recommended a good table to us. And when we returned at night, it was indeed reserved for us. Excellent advice on drinks and food. Combinations absolutely scrumptious. Best home made humus ever. Just to recall it is extremely...

Me and my husband absolutely love tapas, that's why we decided to have our dinner here. What a disappointing experience we had! Start from the point that 3 from 5 tapas we've chosen were out of menu. So we had to improvise and quickly chose another tapas we were not so keen on. When our tapas arrived, I could eat... More

Description
Bradford-on-Avon’s most popular restaurant, Fat Fowl, has a new addition to its flock. The Roost Tapas Bar showcases the excellent food that Fat Fowl has become renowned for in a relaxed setting. Created with the success of Fat Fowl’s jazz evenings in mind, The Roost follows the same laid back formula, combining good company with a bottle of wine and cool sounds. The concept is simple – tapas style dining using the same dishes that you might find on Fat Fowl’s menu. Expect the very freshest, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients to be used on every plate to create sunny, Mediterranean inspired nibbles.
