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

I booked a meal at Bodean’s Tower Hill for myself and my boss who had traveled to the UK from America. I had not been for years, however, they did not disappoint. We were both pleased with the food and cocktails as they also offer a happy hour price! The burnt ends were our favourite being so soft and just melting in your mouth! I would always recommend Bodean’s especially as their staff are so lovely as well.

Had a 14th Birthday for my daughter food was at best mediocre my daughters steak was just a large lump of fat totally inedible had to return for another piece we had starters of nachos mac balls and wings between the 4 dinners which was just average for mains we had 2 steak dinners 1 burrito and a combo a few drinks mainly soft drinks as 2 of the dinners don't drink alcohol at all 3 pints of cider and 2 cocktails the waitress was more interested with talking with her co worker and we struggled to catch her attention total bill was £177 pounds of which nearly £20 was a service charge don't think i will ever return and definitely would not recommend

The one thing that never let's you down at bodeans is the food. No one can ever take that away! However, this trip was a but disapointing for a number of reasons. The waitresses were blunt and rude (eg, my partner asked what larger they had, she replied very bluntly "lots" and then just stood there. This sort of thing continued through the meal. Also, we would always have to call her over, she never came over voluntarily to ask us how our meal was etc. We sat for a good 25 mins with no drinks. This seemed to be a theme with other tables too, unless you were a group of 6 guys who she wanted to flirt with a give a round of free beers too!! Our experience was ruined massively by this attitude. It just doesn't cut it when you're paying those prices. Also, the environment was just disgusting. There was a thick layer of sticky dust right at my eye level covering a really large area. Horrible to look at, and so easy to change! The lamps on the tables and the pots for cutlery were also covered in old dried on sauces - just horrible! Its such a shame as we love the food, but I feel the tower hill branch may have let itself slip. Will not be returning here.
