There are 4 of these American BBQ restaurant plotted around London; Soho, Clapham, Fulham and Tower Hill. The Tower Hill was my go to restaurant for 3 years when I worked close by and I still meet friends here and in all that time I had never tried their burger. Their signature pulled pork and burnt ends are so good here I don't think I had looked at a menu since about 2010.

I had read a few reviews of the burger here and it wasn't pretty, but as always I tried to go in with no expectations.


I ordered the 8oz burger with added bacon and cheese, with a 1/4 pound chili beef hot dog as a side :) I was hungry. We used our qcard's(get one if you don't have one) and got half a dozen diablo buffalo chicken wings as a starter free.



MEAT - They know how to cook their meat, perfectly pink inside and a good flavour as well.


TOPPINGS The salad in particular didn't look the best and the lettuce seemed to be part of another meal but it was but it was fresh and crisp . There wasn't enough bacon or cheese added however both had good flavour.


SIDESAverage chips, but their BBQ sauce could push anything onto another level. A great selection of sides here and I have been sampled most of them. The coleslaw can be a bit hit and miss, but the corn bread muffins and BBQ beans hit the spot every time.

The burger was a lot better then I was expecting but if you're going to Bodeans and not getting some pulled pork and burnt ends, you need your head examined.

Overall Rating 5/10
