Iberian bar BoBo in West Kirby in Wirral


Iberian bar and restaurant brand BoBo says more than 1,500 customers have come through the door at its new Wirral outlet in West Kirby.

Hospitality entrepreneurs Steven Burgess and Josh Moore opened their first BoBo, an Iberian-themed wine bar, tasca and charcuterie in Castle Street in Liverpool city centre in 2020.

At the beginning of August LBN revealed that Steven and Josh were opening their second BoBo outlet in West Kirby on Thursday, August 17. It is located on the corner of Banks Road and Salisbury Avenue.

Similar to the Liverpool venue, it focuses on the flavours of Portugal and Spain offering charcoal grills – churrasqueiras – alongside sides and sharing plates inspired by other traditional Portuguese and Spanish cuisine.

Now the duo say they are “overwhelmed” with the response from West Kirby locals to the new venue.  Steven said: “Since receiving the keys, the reaction to the restaurant has been so positive.

“The number of people visiting has been phenomenal and we have enjoyed welcoming every single person through our doors and are looking forward to meeting even more.

“It has been hectic but exhilarating and a lot of credit must go to our hard-working staff. We are delighted with how our food has excited so many people, as well as being grateful for our customers’ patience as we find our feet in our new home.”

In opening BoBo, Steven and Josh have created 16 jobs, almost all of which have been filled by people from the immediate area.

Josh added: “We aim to be here for the long haul and it’s really important to us that we become part of the community, sourcing locally, delivering a great experience both for our customers and our staff and providing good jobs for Wirral people. 

“We truly believe in what we do and we spend a lot of time thinking about the details and our authenticity and will always tweak until it’s just right. We’ve only just begun but we promise that there’s a lot more to come from us.”
