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.

(**** 12 July 2019 by Daniel from Dublin
Food wasn’t great. My wife had a lovely starter but the exact same sauce was used in the main course and the prawns were swimming in garlic butter. My starter was good however the mains was cold and I felt quite sickly once I left the restaurant. The waitress never engaged with us until we were leaving. She started to ask us about the film and a few questions on same which we both thought was totally daft. Also we could hardly hear what she was saying. Oh why oh why is a 12.5% tip automatically added to the bill and for you to remove it you have to speak with the manager.

Food was amazing, the coconut shrimp was so good. And the staff were nice. Also I liked that at the start they gave us an option to split the bill or pay together, which is good for big groups.

We thought it was a lovely place but very expensive for what we got.

The food was fresh and full of beautiful flavours. We booked our table for 6pm but arrived two hours early which the staff where understanding and politely let us go straight to a table. The staff are lovely and very welcoming. You simply leave a sign on your table when you are ready to eat which was a much more relaxing environment. Prices where very reasonable for the size and flavour. Even once we finished eating my waiter offered me a bag to take the rest of the food which was lovely. The decor through was amazing and really suited the restaurant. I even had to take pictures and to top it off there is a shop to buy gifts espired by forest gump. Overall great experience and will 100% be coming back!

Great staff, and good food, but those drink prices put me off for a very long time.

It was our second time we’ve been as a date night , we arrived early and was told that our groupon voucher was only valid till 5pm either I missed it or it wasn’t clearly printed on the info but the staff quickly gave us a seat , I have a gluten allergy and asked the waiter if the tortilla contained gluten which he promptly found out and offered the salad instead which was lovely I then order the veggie burger with no bun but he came back and said that also had gluten but he said the chef would prepare some chicken and mash without the gravy which had gluten which I didn’t think of the chicken was amazing and I’am craving for more , the server was so apologetic about the food limitations and was so friendly the whole atmosphere was fun and relaxed and we felt like nothing was too much the toilets were very clean and the music was fun retro and we were singing along , I love this restaurant and the prices are very good for London , you don’t have to have seen the movie to have a great experience here and it’s always great to have staff who appear to actually like their jobs and want to give a positive customer experience, definitely will return
