Whether the market's a bear or a bull, City investors looking for the biggest and best return for their dining portfolio head for the sign of the golden pig. And if you too have a yen to make a sterling deposit in your appetite account without paying top-dollar, Bodean's East is located in the loveliest corner of the Square Mile facing the Tower of London on the Thames. Pound for Euro, there is no more filling feast than at Bodean's East, whether grabbed on the fly as you walk through the door or taking your time downstairs in our sumptuous club setting where buttonback Broadway hits the trail. And since we're just yards from the Tower of London's historical treasure house, after ogling the Crown Jewels and stalking the ancient battlements you can relax and refuel without fretting about the budget. “Serious about smoke” Marina O'Loughlin - Metro, Mar 2009 It may have been bread and water for Anne Boleyn, but don't let that curb your craving for our Big Country banquet with sumptuous servings of prime pork, beef, wings, shrimp, chili and seriously hearty veggie options too, all served by our friendly family of staff whose Butts, we boast, are the Best in the West. And the East, come to think of it. “Need no teef to eat my beef” Andre Blais (owner), Apr 2009

Table for 6 booked, al going well seated and food order placed. Then it just went down hill, starters came out at the same time as the mains, no reason, no excuse just the way it was and by the time it was all on the table it was to late to do anything. then half way through eating our mains the waitress comes up and says "we are about to do a shift hand over so i'll bring you your bill" and that was it, we sat there with our food still eating and the bill was closed and put in front of us! I assume this is so she got the service charged added to her shift. The result? when we paid the bill we had the £20.00 service charge removed. AND BODEANS MANAGMENT PAY ATTENTION you lost out on us ordering any more drinks, and deserts, how much does that add up to for 6 people? £70.00-80.00?

Ribs were first class, and service was excellent. Chicken was a little dry but know better for next time to just go with the full rack.

All staff provided us excellent customer service and very approachable. The environment was incredibly comfortable and nice. The value was great . The receptionist that was working on the 16/03/19 night was great although we forgot his name. He let us use his phone to book a uber taxi. Amazing people will definitely come back for more.

We had never eaten at Bodean’s before and we were not disappointed. The food and service were faultless.

The food is quite nice and the service was good. The main issue I had was how expensive it was - the prices seemed to be quite random. My friends paid about £7 for a burger that came with pulled pork and burnt ends, coleslaw and chips and I had to pay £16 for essentially the same thing but with half a rack of ribs instead of a burger.
