If you're a meat lover, Bodeans is a clear choice. There's a massive selection of platters, BBQ mains, nibbles, sides, and desserts, as well as a large choice of drinks/milkshakes. The only qualm I have is having to sit next to strangers, even if there's lots of free tables. The staff seem to have a problem with spreading diners out,... More

I like to pop here on a day off from work and have a slow long lunch. Its good not to rush the food. The staff are always really friendly and upbeat. The restaurant has an American deco and theme to it, with TV screens playing American sports. The food is really good here. I'm never disappointed with it, and... More

I have been to a Bodean's before, but no this one and I haven't reviewed one (I think). Generally I like them and this branch is as good as any. It's in a handy place, it is well presented and looked after, the booths are nice, the staff were friendly, albeit very slightly slow. If you like meat and BBQ,... More

We have been to bodeans several times, and it's usually because we are craving their delicious ribs!!!! The burnt ends and wings are lush too, only reason I don't give them 5 stars is because I always find the service there quite slow, sometimes food come before the drinks which I find quite annoying. But food is great!

Quite liked the look of it from outside, and then the inside. We had a decent booth up near the bar and got some drinks in. The menu choice was fine but the waitress hadn't been trained sufficiently well and gave us answers that had to be wrong. We ended up being served by another waitress, which was fine. We... More

This is a BBQ restaurant that does everything right. Lots of great meat, well cooked with great sauces. Loads of drinks to choose from and some beers I had never seen before in London. It's a loud and fun and highly recommended for that kind of night out. Service was good too!

Four of us went to Bodans last night, we had the Hogs Platter, plus pork chicken sausage platter adding extra chips to complete the meal. Everything was well cooked, and given the amount of food on the table, the two boys managed to polish it off, when my daughter & I were all ribbed out! Well worth a visit if... More

Met family here on their recommendation. Fantastic food - we had the mid week platter which was really good value for what we had followed by a chocolate brownie and ice cream. Felt like I'd had a good feed afterwards. Only downside was the price of the beers. £6.95 for a pint of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale seemed a bit... More
