One of the best American food in this side of Atlantic! Really good American food, drinks and friendly service. Also, Bodean's is also kids friendly! 100% recommend!

The food is probably the best BBQ we have had in the country so far! I had the burnt ends and pulled pork combo and my husband had the tri-tip sandwich and we had BBQ beans and onion rings for sides and all were fantastic! I would definitely recommend!

If you want a good quantity of meat at a reasonable price and good service you'll not go far wrong here. It's not fine dining, but for a good quantity of tasty food it's pretty good.

Went for a birthday dinner. I ordered the 15 pound match day special (ribs, chicken wings, pulled pork and a beer). My girlfriend ordered a hotdog and mac and cheese. I was surprised the beer was a half, which wasn't clear on the menu. The food came out less than 5 minutes after ordering. The hot dog was cold, and... More

If you want some hearty, straight forward food this is the place for you. We were so full up the waiter offered us to take away the rest of our food which was a nice touch. Good service and good food.

We had a very tasty feast at bodean's. The meat was tender and well seasoned. The portions were a bit large for me, but with that knowledge I will definitely be returning.

I had a combo. Burnt ends came drenched in sauce - very few of them. Ribs were dry and lacking in flavour or juiciness - not even as good as a £3.99 pack from Lidles and a third as big. Fries were warm and bland - not even as good as Burger King. Slaw was very poor - similar to... More

The restaurant is in a perfect location, it misses out on 5 stars for me due to being packed in the booths like sardines. The food is reasonably priced and delicious and the beer got the thumbs up from the adults. Kids eat free at certain times of the week which is an added bonus. I would visit again but... More

Visited Bodean's on Sun 19th Feb after passing on numerous occasions and always promising ourselves to dine there. Had booking for 8.30 and was greeted by a delicious aroma of barbecue meat and a charming waiter. We were seated downstairs and ordered a starter of nachos followed by pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw and fries. All the food was delicious... More

We have ate at Bodeans' Tower Hill 3 times now and have never had a bad meal !! The choice of food is great and really gives you that great American BBQ taste at a decent price. Bodeans' is always busy, especially Friday and Saturday nights, so if you are able to book ahead then do. However if you are... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
