Whether you’re a wolf of the City Square Mile, a Hoxton hipster or an overseas visitor in search of that corner of London town that is forever KC, Bodean’s extends a wide-open welcome at the sign of the golden pig. Since opening our first branch in 2002, Bodean’s is the first choice destination for slow-cooked, low-smoked barbecue lovers here in town and worldwide. Nor are we just talking one nation under a porker, but prime beef, USDA, wings, slow smoked Tri-Tip Brisket and seriously hearty veggie options too. What better than a prime location where alternative London overlaps with the world-class business capital, Bodean’s in Old Street is where it is at.

Tried the BBQ ribs, pulled pork & chicken thigh meal. It tasted amazing! Everything was fully roasted but nothing was too hard to chew. Each type of meat tasted different, but all were properly seasoned, and nothing was too sweet. Chips were also tasty. Portions...More

Visited last year and thoroughly enjoyed the burger. This time, I went for the chicken burger and it was fantastic, best I've had in a long time. Topped with that was a good selection of drinks, friendly staff and great music.
