We’ve just had the worst take away dried up burnt corn, tasteless coleslaw, undercooked ribs, what’s gone wrong a Bodeans?

Went to Bodeans with my family and the meat and chicken was dry, tasteless and tough. Also, the service was very confused and the sauces not particularly good. Won't make the same mistake a second time!

I can't get enough of Bodean! I could have it every day for every meal. I've visited Clapham restaurant on Saturday evening with three of my friends and we all had a super lovely experience. We’ve ordered a big sharing platter, with brisket, sausage and...plenty of sides. I still can't get over the amazing flavours. I didn't catch our server's name, he was young, with dark brown hair, a super funny guy. His sense of humour made our visit very special. He was always at hand, attentive. Perfect service.More

Been here many times in the past. Haven't been in perhaps a year but sooo disappointed. I would always go for a double slap up portion of the chicken wings. Wings this occasion were OK but were hugely let down by the bottled blue cheese...sauce. Our waitress kindly defended as bought in. Prices have also gone up considerably. So, you should definitely get more for your money. A definite shame and I will not be returning.More

We asked what burnt ends were and told really nice. We both ordered them but OMG they were extremely salty. Noone asked how our meal was. Noone asked when both plates had so much left if all was okay. We then ordered two different desserts...to be informed neither available. So disappointed we have been before but really will take a lot to return. Birthday meal absolutely not worth it.More

Our visit was terrible.. We had to wait ages to be served before our food arrived. I could Not smell the food being cooked on the grill.. We ordered baby ribs and pulled pork, which was dry , and didn’t feel like what people brag...about. Was Un impressed by it..Also I had CHICKEN THIGH AND BABY RIBS WHICH WERE BOTH DRY AND THE CHICKEN WAS THE WORST IVE EVER HAD IN A RESTAURANT. There was NO Barbecue Sauce on the RiBs, which made it taste absolutely Tasteless 😐. The chips were overcooked and we had to leave half our food on the plates, when we left.. Also we ordered cocktails…. A pornstar and a Cosmo… The pornstar didn’t have any Prosecco in it, we had to ask for the Prosecco to be added, as they tried to put a cheap lime flavoured shot in it like bland tasteless water🤷🏽‍♂️🙁 Also the Cosmo was very bittersweet and the sliced Lime looked like it was pre packed from frozen. They were very Dry and looked like they’ve been lying on the kitchen side table.. No effort was put into the presentation , and me and my girlfriend Shall Not be going there again.. It was Not worth the £50 we spent as we were both Very Dissapointed….More
