An early Saturday evening visit after a day of traipsing around the city meant we had a healthy appetite and Bodeans was more than able to fill the gap. There is plenty of seating downstairs and the tables are well enough spaced out. We were...More

Okay food, good service and not overly expensive for location. The restaurant does feel a little tired these days and could with a revamp. Would go back but not rush to do so.

Food is amazing! I recommend the baby back ribs, pulled pork and burnt ends. Very tasty. Sweet potato fries cost a little extra but are lovely and have some sort of flavouring on them. Chicken is ok but doesn't compare to the pork, I would...More

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

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.
