Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. London

Bubba Gump Shrimp

Last weekend were were treated to a fantastic day out at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Followed by a delicious lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. Bubba Gump is situated between Picaldilly and Leicester  Square so gret to know about if you are planning a day out in London over the Summer. It is a Forest Gump themed restaurant with photos and memorabilia over the walls and the film playing on TV a screens.

The theming is fantastic. Even down to the signs on the tables. I found out (by mistake) that if you keep it on the blue "Run Forest Run" then everything's fine. Need a waiter? Flip it onto the red "Stop Forrest Stop!" I love little touches like this.

The children's menu had a good selection of food from macaroni to pizza to fish and chips. Like any good family restaurant, there were activity books to keep the boys entertained and their food was bought out first in these quirky boats.

We were treated to a sample buffet. I tried most things and liked them all! My favourites had to be the shrimp macaroni and Mama's southern fried chicken. I would never have ordered this usually as I would have expected something like KFC. It was chicken breast with the most amazing sauce. I am not sure what was in it but if had a real kick and I was told it is made on the premises.

I hardly had room for dessert by I managed to fit some in! It was the first time I had tried key lime pie and the warm chocolate chip cookie was lovely too.

I have to admit that when I looked at the prices I was pretty impressed. Considering that it is in central London,  £4.50 - £5.50 for a kids meal and the adult shrimp and  macaroni at £8.95 sounds good to me. 

If you are looking for somewhere fun to eat the next time you are in London with the children then Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is definitely worth a visit. Here is my favourite sign - having been a waitress I think it is fantastic!

    Do you know I never had mac and cheese in the states - too busy eating steak at Ruth Chris' :-) When we go again it will be a big decision between the mac and cheese and the southern fried chicken x

    Yes a friend was talking about one in the states so I told him he didn't need to travel so far.

    They were good - but not as good as the southern friend chicken!

    I walked past it a lot when I was younger but never really got what it was about! So glad I have been as it was good fun x

    Those are very reasonable prices for central London. This is one we haven't tried before - I think the kids would love it.
