Went on a business night out. Great American bbq food. Bourbon bbq wings were awesome. Ribs delicious and pulled pork. Got a special deal at £15. Cocktail recommended by such a helpful waitress and was the best cocktail I drank in the shirt time staying here. Great food, great service. Will recommend and go to again.

A great little restaurant! Reasonably priced and large portion sizes we even managed to leave food! Atmosphere was great with friendly staff. If you've been out all day doing tourist attractions I would defiantly recommend stopping here for a bite.

Went here on the recommendation of a colleague who is a London regular and we were so glad we decided to take his advice! Food was absolutely superb and cooked to perfection and price wise was definitely reasonable for what was brought to the table. Will definitely be visiting her again on our next London break.

Very nice, large. My main: 1lb pulled pork burrito: LARGE. 1lb +Rice. Very tasty. I couldn't finish the rice. Works well with the diablo sauce (£1)... More

Had to visit this place as tried several times before & the sheer size of the queue made us have to turn away. We were lucky to get in the Tower Hill outlet but we did & were seated downstairs in what was a definite culture shock but a very American place. Opted for the roast BBQ chicken & I... More

Great BBQ grub, we always get the boss platter with a few little extras. The ribs, pork and beef are amazing, as is the pulled pork and burnt ends. Normally go without food the next day after a full pig out 😁. Staff always seem very helpful and even though it can get very busy you never feel rushed or... More

I'm a fan of bodeans, I've been to the Fulham branch too. Food is always delicious. Can get really busy during rush hour. Some of the hosting staff can be a bit abrupt though.

Second time I've been here the food is amazing the portions are ample and I would recommend the burnt ends without reservation! Fast and friendly service with the pricing being a little on the high side but it is definitely worth it!

As an American southerner I can attest that Bodeans has some of the best BBQ I have had. Ample sized and good casual atmosphere. All around good place for comfort food.

From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
