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

Food and drinks were nice and to normal standard however service was very poor..firstly a side we had ordered did not initially come with our meals and then on finishing our meal we sat in full of view of staff with plates uncollected for a significant time..we were then not offered a dessert menu and after waiting a considerable while my husband had to ask for this..we then waited again in full view for an order to be taken..which we decided against.

Overall the meal was decent, but I was expecting better. Having come a few times a couple of years ago, I felt the quality wasn't what it once was. Menu wasn't really explained to us either - we had to ask what 'wet or dry' was. Also, why is there no buffalo sauce option for chicken wings? £8 for a cocktail also seems a bit expensive for a joint like this - I didn't feel that was worth it. Overall decent, but I'm reserved to coming back again.

Great location, fast service and tasty food! Would recommend booking beforehand and the ‘burnt ends’.

Had great service for a mid-week table of 6, one of out party was late and the kitchen were kind enough to remake the order to ensure it was hot and fresh. Good happy hour and excellent social space.
