This is the second time we have eaten here, and once again the food and service was perfect. I mentioned on my booking that we were celebrating my husbands 50th birthday and they brought out a dessert for him with a lit candle! I had actually forgotten I’d mentioned it so I was as surprised as he was hahaha!!! Recommend this place, very very tasty food! You’re not sat waiting ages and the staff are very attentive.

Have visited other Bodean locations in London but this was our first visit to Tower Hill and really enjoyed it. We were sat downstairs and had a great view of the many screens showing NFL Red Zone. Food and service was excellent, and great value for money. Had the Burnt Ends with Pulled Pork platter and it was superb. Key Lime Pie was also excellent. Thanks for an excellent meal and evening in general.
