We arrived after a spot of Christmas shopping about 530pm. We were told they only accepted bookings of 8 or more so we chanced it but was told a 30 minute wait. No problem, we just went to the pub and bang on the half-hour we were told the table was ready. We ordered a sharing platter, the meat was... More

Came here after visiting London for my partners birthday. I had visited here before and had told her all about how good Bodean's was. Lunchtime on a Saturday and it was packed out, managed to get a table pretty quick. The food came and it was incredible, totally lived up to the hype I had given it. Burnt ends are... More

Went her based on good reviews I'd heard I've been to quite a few indoor BBQ restaurants and I must say on this occasion I don't heel it lived up to its reputation. On arrival we were seated quickly with menus already on, but then left at the table waiting for a pretty long time before anyone came to us... More

Well what I can say is booked my seats online about 6 weeks ago as I understood that this place got busy because of the food and I'm so glad I did very busy place plenty of people getting turned away. And as for the food wow we both had the 12oz New York Strip and wow very tasty cooked... More

We went for dinner at Bodean's Soho, and we had a very bad experience. Initially we asked for a table of 5 and they told us we need to wait for 2 hours to be seated. We then decided to sit at the outdoor area which was absolutely fine despite the cold. We ordered food for 5 (mainly baby back... More

Had the nachos and burger. Came out stuffed. Larger on tap was bud and a few other American ones. My wife had the burnt ends served dry she really enjoyed them. Would come back tomorrow. Eat upstairs but looks good downstairs too.

Encouraged by TripAdvisor reviews, I called in here for lunch and agree with other reviewers as to the standard of food here. I had Babyback ribs, a beef rib and a sausage link with a side of mac'n'cheese. The sausage link was good and had just the right touch of smoke and spice and the beef rib was tender and... More

Bodeans never ceases to impress me. Lovely tasty food cooked perfectly. Personally if you wish to share I reccomend you to go for the sharing platter for two which offers a great selection to feast upon. My fave has to be the burnt ends. My tip if you know your going in advance to get a free Q Card (loyalty... More

4 of us enjoyed a quick bite to eat. Best part is you can get bottle of beers with your food. I had a quarter chicken which was lovely. Suitable for quick quality food!!

I've probably visited Bodean's nearly twenty times over the years but am sad to say it's not quite it's glorious self anymore, perhaps that it was only 2/3rds full on a Friday lunch should have warned us. Service for our waitress was great and quick upstairs, but sadly after ordering a pulled pork and burnt ends combo I was left... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
