If you’ve seen Forrest Gump, I don’t need to explain who Bubba Gump is. If you haven’t seen it, go and see it now! It’s a classic.
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co is the only restaurant chain based on a motion picture and everything in the joint reminds you of the film down to the down-home décor, quotes and movie memorabilia. Set over two floors Bubba Gump London can feed up to 400 guests – the place is pretty big without losing its atmosphere.
The star of the show is of course shrimp but there’s something for everyone with seafood, salads, kids meals, ribs and desserts. There’s also a gluten free menu which of course piqued my interest! There’s not a load on it but there is the option to have most dishes on the a la carte menu modified to gluten free upon request.
Before the food comes they keep the kids entertained with colouring and word search and we sat in a booth (seats up to six) which had cute quotes from the film (which admittedly went over the kids head) and pictures of old fashioned toys and pictures which they loved.
Food wise we had a little bit of everything and left feeling absolutely stuffed! I mean look at all this:
