Family visit here on a recomendation. Was not disappointed, you gotta like meat , the baby ribs were devine as was the chicken. It was a Saturday night , it was really busy and it was very loud and noisy a real buzzing atmosphere. Food was ordered and arrived pretty quickly. Staff were attentive and friendly.

Squashed Sardines is the seating arrangement not the food, food is lovely. Will come back after I lose 3 stone to put it back on.

Went here with my fiancé on a Saturday evening. I had the KC brisket sandwich and my fiancé had half pullpork- half ribs. We were really looking forward to it but both the ribs and the brisket was really dry. Nothing wrong with the taste but far from juicy. Sides were ok. We did have some cocktails and they were...

The food here was great - serving size is definitely one to prepare yourself for! I personally will recommend the hot wings and burnt ends! Also be warned - you will be asked "is everything ok?" About twice every second which we found quite funny until it came around the time to pay and everyone was a bit too busy.... More

Been a few times, very nice food and drinks, the service from the short South American waiters was very very friendly. Pity they show only football and no other sports. Chocolate brownie was delicious, cheesecake was a bit hard. will be back

Family visiting this weekend and wanted a "meat feast". Wanted a table at 8 for 4. Annoyed that the website has a booking system - but doesn't work! Called them to see if I could book, told not possible. Also, told they might be busy at that time and we might have to wait for an hour. All the food... More

We went on a quiet Wednesday night, to have some food and drinks- we ordered happy hour cocktails and then decided to order a starter and a food platter to share- the platter was on special as football was on, and we were surprised to have been told we couldn't have it if we kept the happy hour offer -...

I have been to Bodeans several times over the years & find it’s really gone downhill. The food isn’t as nice as it used to be standards have really slipped & the food is just dry & tasteless. The meat tastes really over cooked & dry so does the chicken. I know it’s a smokehouse but the meat & chicken... More

Visited with two friends, greeted warmly. I had the mac and cheese with the extra chicken. Food came quickly but when it arrived there was no chicken on it. I sent it back after i managed to get the attention of the waitress who took it back to the Kitchen. When it came back again it had a tiny quantity... More

Visited her on the 19/3/17 for my birthday and was not disappointed. Food was plentyful and so tasty. What made it was the service from our waitress Rose. She overheard us clinking drinks for my birthday and gave us a discount on the bill and gave us a free dessert to share. Great atmosphere, and again great food.
