The Crawfish Boil is back! 

In the spirit of all things Americana, Beas of Bloomsbury will be bringing back the much loved Louisiana-style Crawfish Boil! Mountains of Spiced Crawfish, Potatoes, Sweetcorn, Sausage, and Garlic Bread along with cocktail sauce, comeback sauce and our special cajun butter sauce for dipping, this is a not a feast for the faint-hearted. This is a crawfish boil the way my family has it back in the states.

There will be no plates, no cutlery. Just lots of butcher paper, wedges of lemon, and learn the 'rustic' way of enjoying these critters, which would not be out of place in any horror B-movie. Don't come dressed fancy! Come in clothes that you may need to burn in shame afterwards.

Tickets are £32 per person for all you can eat Crawfish, sauces, butters, sides and dessert. Drinks are not included. For dessert we'll be passing out our ice lollies of different flavours or brownies, enjoy as many as you can consume! One seating only, so there's no rush--this will be a proper Southern party--no rush, a chance to enjoy the nice weather, and great company.  Better yet, the crawfish comes right here in the UK rivers, and by eating them, we're helping the UK white-clawed crayfish population by eating the American Crayfish invaders. Our crawfish come courtesy of Crayfish Bob. Please visit his site for more information on what you can do to help eradicate the Crawfish population.

There will be a drinks menu available serving frosty beers and our own Raspberry Lemonade as well as margaritas!

The Crawfish boil will be held at our Maltby Street arch--starts at 6:30 p.m. and will go onto into the night. If you have any song requests--send it along to us and we'll add it to the playlist!

If you are wishing to host a corporate event or celebratory Crawfish boil we can accommodate up to 50-130 people (more if the weather is cooperative) for private hire. Please email for more information.
