Look, Bodean’s isn’t the greatest BBQ spot in the world, but it’s one of the few places in London where you can watch England implode against a team of semi-professional footballers and highly professional plumbers whilst stuffing your face with burnt ends and smoked sausage. For that alone, it has much worth. The Soho original is our favourite, not just because it’s got loads of screens and loads of meat, but because of its useful location in central.
