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.

It was lovely and food was delicious. I missed some San Valentine's decoration to be hones, but staff was very nice, smiley and helpful. The chicken wings were a bit dry inside, even if they were the "wet" version, but the sauce is soooo good.

We went for Valentine's Day and were early for our reservation, the staff were so friendly and fine about it whilst we waited at the bar for our chosen seat. The food was so good, though we ordered too much but took it away and reheated it the next day and it still tasted just as good! service was great, as always. Really recommend the chocolate milkshake!

Great food for meat eaters but only one vegetarian option on the menu; it would be good to have a couple more choices for the non meat eaters when they are joining carnivore friends.

The usual strong experience on the meat front - Well cooked and tasty if a little on the cooler side when served. The only standout negative was the watermelon salad which was inedible. A little more effort on the meat side would help given most groups have non meat eaters.
