Back in the day Balham was Peter Sellers' Gateway to the South, a national joke coined by a comedy legend. Today the good folks of Balham have the last laugh as South London’s chuckle central is a mecca for laughter -lovers, hipsters and — hallelujah, mama! — Connoisseurs of the finest BBQ and rare beers, Bourbons and sipping whiskies to be found this side of the Atlantic divide.
Loud and proud on Balham's main drag, Bodean's corner site bar and BBQ is a local landmark on the highway to the stars. Whether you wish to worship the ultimate Kansas City BBQ or sit at the elegant U-bar sampling a selection of prime Stateside ales and rare liquors, you know you've come home to good times.

The food was lovely, ordered 2 platters, Jacobs ladder ribs and a burger. I think the move to order your meal in separate parts is an error. I think the concept is fine but you don't really want one plate with ribs on, one with your coleslaw and one with the chips on, just put it all together, it's not tapas! We had to wait quite a while for the chips to come with the platter which was annoying. In summary, the staff are lovely, the food is good and the choice of beer and spirits is really good; there just needs to be more care taken when reading the ticket to make sure all the food comes out properly and please serve the meals on one plate, not tapas style.
