We visited on Saturday the 13th May. The lady on the front desk was very nice and took us downstairs to our seats. The restaurant was very clean and has a great atmosphere inside. This is our fifth visit to Bodean’s Tower Hill, but unfortunately...More

Ordered a sampling of all bbq items on menu and everything was tender and tasty from the ribs, brisket, pull pork. When in London and wanting some true American bbq this is the place to go.

8 of us met for a Saturday lunch, 12.30, when visiting London. We booked in advance, which was a good idea, as it was very busy. We were served promptly, the menu was extensive and the meals were great. We had chicken and rib comos,...More

A trip to a restaurant, for me, is never just about the food, it's about the whole dining experience. From the outside, this place really doesn't look up to much. I did notice a few people stop, look and then move on. Actually they missed...More

The menu here is mostly tailored for the meat lovers who love juicy meat. This is a fabulous place to eat and will highly recommend it. There is TV to watch sports

City of London
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

Are the disturbing rumours that the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale is no longer available true? If so this is a sad loss.

would like to know why i have to pay another company to deliver your food, that you should be delivering, i'm expected to pay another company to bring my order around the corner and wait for 45,minutes which i find very appalling, now i understand that you need to make money, and as most takeaways have a minimum order delivery service it makes me wonder why you would not use this method in stead of franchising this out to another company.
