Restaurant description

Inspired by the 1994 smash-hit film Forrest Gump, Bubba Gump serves up a menu devoted to shrimp. This favourite American restaurant group brings its first site to the UK, which sits amidst the bustle of Piccadilly Circus.

Alongside the super-fresh, sustainably-sourced shrimp dishes, the Bubba Gump menu is filled with home-cooked Alabama-style main courses. Favourites include ‘dumb luck’ coconut shrimp with Cajun marmalade, fries and coleslaw, or mama’s southern-fried chicken with bourbon gravy. Extravagant yet homely desserts include key lime pie or the ‘best of the best’ sampler for a little taste of everything, while tropical-style cocktails are served in souvenir glasses.

The colourful dining room features rustic, seafood shack-style décor, and the walls are plastered with memorabilia from the film. Bubba Gump in London also serves a special under-10s menu, filled with Forrest Gump-themed main courses, and build-your-own sundaes.

Found within London’s bustling Trocadero Bubba Gump restaurant in Piccadilly Circus sits directly next door to the tube station.

    We had a lovely lunch - Got a great welcome by the host, was able to use the lift as I have difficulty with stairs and to top a great experience our waiter, Pavlos, took great care of us. When I explained my allergies he spoke directly to the chef to ensure I could have my food selection and the food was fantastic Very clean restaurant and a great atmosphere Credit to you all xxx ??

    Waiting staff were cheerful and polite. Food was served in a timely manner. I was disappointed with the limited choice on the Virgin Experience menu and it was uninspiring. The soft drinks choices did not include mineral water. Having said that, what we did have we enjoyed so we would visit again to select from the full menu.
