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

We had a great meal on Saturday night. The food was great. Drinks tasty and the atmosphere was brilliant. Buzzy and noisy but not over the top (this might have just been our table). The service was great too.

I recently visited Bodean's at Tower Hill (12/07/2019) with some colleagues. We visit a few times each year and usually enjoy our visit without issue. I ordered the hot chicken wings to start and the 1lb pulled pork burrito for main. The chicken wings were great as per usual but my burrito contained a fist sized lump of congealed fat which had been 'pulled' alongside the appetising meat. It was like finding the contents of a tin of pedigree chum inside your dinner. I asked the server why they felt that it was okay to serve this to a customer paying £11 for a burrito which they would expect to find filled with pulled pork. The server was clearly annoyed that this had come out of the kitchen and muttered that he was 'sorry man' and that I could pick anything from the menu in exchange. Unfortunately having unwittingly chewed on a mouthful of dog food and with my colleagues half way through their meals, I elected to go without. The burrito did not appear on our bill but everything else did and we were avoided until we left. This was disgraceful behaviour from the kitchen, knowingly plopping a lump of inedible blubber into someone's dinner and for what purpose? Improved margins, reduced waste, a lack of pork? I seriously don't understand the point of this disgraceful behaviour.
