Following the success of the Cirencester’s La Bobina in Black Jack Street, Rhiannon Stone has opened a Marlborough branch in the former Bow Belles building. Rhiannon told Marlborough.news, “We love Marlborough and it has a very similar style to Cirencester. The building is ideal, with an open kitchen and a garden which is a hidden gem.”
La Bobina (bobbin in English), is so named because the first restaurant, established in 2015, was situated in a former haberdashery in Faringdon. The restaurant offers a wide range of tapas and specially selected Spanish wines and sherries sourced by a specialist Spanish wine supplier.
Rhiannon commented, “We have some very traditional dishes from different regions of Spain. 70% of all our produce is from Spain. We love Spain, have spent lots of time there and have family there. We have a great team of chefs, who have lots of experience of different types of cuisine. Our opening night on Wednesday was fully booked with Sangria flying out and hot favourites off the menu such as Tempura Monkfish and Cecina De Leon(beef carpaccio).”
La Bobina is open from Tuesday to Saturday. From 10-12 a breakfast of coffee and churros is served. From 12 noon onwards the tapas dishes, and there are over 25 different ones, are available.
Part owner, Barnaby Vogt said, “We are very happy to be part of the Marlborough community and excited for what is to come.”
Bookings can be made through the website here. Customers just wanting to pop in for a drink are also welcome as the bar area isn’t bookable and is always available.
