Bodean's (Clapham)

Hi. I started going to Bodeans not long after it opened when it was relatively unknown. The food and service was great. Unfortunately, these days more often than not the experience is poor, perhaps they are now a victim of their success. Three out of the last four occasions we have been there they had run out of food and there was only a few meals available from the menu (imagine a place famous for its meat not having any ribs, steak or pork - the only meat they had was a burger and that was terrible). On the other occasion we went they must have been in the process of running out of food again and had started to ration it out. When we complained to the staff they just shrugged their shoulders and couldn't have cared less, though to be fair at the end of our dinner they did give us a complimentary shot each (but I suspect that was the waiting staff's way of ensuring they got a tip). A real shame because once upon a time Bodeans was good.
