Bobo Social is a unique and quaint restaurant/bar in Charlotte Street. A gourmet burger restaurant that couldn't look further from a burger restauran! A shabby chic interior with charity shop hunted crockery, linen napkins and inviting country tables and benches, all make Bobo Social stand out from the other burger chains and make it a place you can sit down and enjoy a relaxing 3 course meal, rather than a dash in and out vibe.Lunch is served from 12pm - 3pm Monday to Wednesday and dinner is served from 6pm - 10pm Monday, Tuesday and from 5 - 10pm on Wednesdays. The kitchen is open from 12pm - 10.30pm Thursday - Saturday.
Interesting experience here. We went for the Experimental Burger Society they had and it started off quite well. They had 2 for 1 cocktails and we sat down at a shared table with 2 other couples.
We had a choice between wild boar, beef and zebra and they were all great. From there, the evening took quite a turn. I went for the zebra and it tasted like overcooked beef. Given the service we received, it wouldn't surprise me if they messed the order up. Of the 14 people there, we felt like we weren't given any attention, but the big table who did a group booking, got everything they wanted. 3 orders at our combined table were just missed out or forgotten about, despite the fact that everything was written down on a card. The end result was a completely average burger, a complete lack of extras (that they charge for) as I added bacon and got 2 tiny mini sized pieces, my partner added blue cheese and got probably less than a spoonful.
I had to go up to the kitchen to ask about all the late side orders we placed, when I asked the waiter, he asked the chef and the chef immediately dropped his knife and sauntered over to the cooker. As if he had somewhere better to be for his night of work? Honestly, if you don't want to be there then don't be there. The bartender was awesome though, so he was a saving grave on the service list.
Would I recommend the experience? For upwards of £70 for 2 people, probably not. The burger making was fun and informative, but you'll find a tastier burger at Five Guys.
Booked a table on Opentable, showed up and it was a shambles. We were seated at a table, we then got asked to leave that table. The manager had no idea of what was going on. We left.
The burgers were good, very cozy place and a nice, welcoming atmosphere. However, we ended up paying £17 for a cider and a glass of wine... which seems a bit pricey for me
Nice place. Good cocktail collection. Loved the burgers! Space is a little bit tight with the main sitting area downstairs.
Visited with friend at lunchtime using the £6.50 burger and unlimited fries offer via TimeOut. Had the Bobo burger (6oz Rare-Breed Beef, Butterhead Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, BOBO Sauce) with added cheese and bacon (£1 per extra). Wasn't given a choice on how I wanted my burger cooked but it was nicely done so no issue there. Would go back but only using an offer.
