We booked via Benedict's website for an early weekday lunch. The day before we received a reminder phone call - that does not often happen,even in quality establishments. Both of us chose the set menu - 3 courses for £20. We were not disappointed. Front of house were delightful, offering us a pine-cone with designer chips tucked in, and then... More

This place has a special place in my heart. Food is superb and service attentive but not stuffy! It is not a cheap meal but not high end expensive - always worth every penny

We dined at Restaurant Benedicts with a couple of friends a Saturday a few months back. The restaurant is itself modern and appealing and is complemented by wonderful front of house staff who made us feel incredibly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The four of us each had the tasting menu and we were all straight away in... More

What a great place this is! Calm, lovely and knowledgeable staff who don't say 'enjoy' all the time, a small menu with what appears to be limited choice when in fact there are many surprises with every dish. I had the mackerel with sour apple, he the Slack Ma cheese; then the hogget and he the heritage vegetables with wild... More

We visited Benedicts with friends for lunch. It was our third visit having been previously for both lunch and dinner. It was our friends first visit. You can have the set lunch menu which costs £16 for two courses and £20 for three. The alternative if you don't want the set menu or a 6 or more course tasting menu... More

Early Saturday evening meal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had the 8 course tasting menu with the wine flight. The sommelier had time to explain the wine pairings in detail. The food was sublime and the atmosphere was pleasant. A delightful evening

We were in the private room upstairs and were very well looked after. Although our menu was limited because we were a large group, the fish and vegetarian choices were interesting. Every dish came with a twist and a flourish. If I lived locally this would definitely be somewhere to return to for regular special occasions.

The meal started with ‘snacks’, in this case a prawn cocktail tartlet, crisps and a divine dip, and rice crackers with a sherry mousse. All these were delightful. This was followed by a light pork broth that packed quite a flavour. I followed this with Norfolk Quail while my other half had the lamb, they were, needless to say, beautifully cooked.... More
