We visited during the week for dinner! We both had the fish & chips which were really lovely! Also at £11 it is pretty reasonable for restaurants in the area! Only slight thing would be that the menu online has different prices than in the restaurant! Overall a very pleasant dinner!

I love this place, relaxed, casual, friendly and good food reasonably priced. We had a Sunday brunch, each having the 'baked egg' dish. Great food and perfect on a winters day. Nice service and attentive staff make this a pleasant experience. This place is maybe overlooked a little bit with all the new places opening in this area but it... More

We called in for lunch as we were visiting friends nearby. Have to say that based on this visit the place is in desperate need of help... and fast!!! Staff couldn't care less and really made us feel that they would prefer it if there were no customers there to disturb their conversation with each other. Food and service very... More

Popped in on a half day from work for lunch, menu seemed quite muddled and I settled on a Caesar wrap - I have a fish allergy and checked with the waitress to see if there was any fish used in the sauce - was told no, proceeded to order and when the food arrived I took a huge bite... More

Always been a fan of Bennett's but today we called in for coffee and after a lengthy wait we had to take the menu to the counter to order. Granted we weren't swelling the coffers by our quick stop off for coffee and scones but the service was abysmally poor. It was between lunch and dinner but the poor service... More

I have been numerous times on a Saturday morning for breakfast and it's been lovely each and every time. Welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.

We called on Friday evening (6.30 pm) after work for our dinner. I ordered the lamb and my husband the seafood tagliatelle (he can't eat meat) with a bottle of wine. The wine was served and our dinner a little later. Half way through his pasta my husband noticed that there was no seafood in the dish. To my horror,... More

I am so sorry for your poor experience in our restaurant. I have spoken to the manager on duty and I can only apologize for the confusion in taking the order as obviously we did not know you were a vegetarian or we would have never served you Linguine Amatriciana. When you made us aware of the problem, our manager... More

First of all I love this place. I always get a great meal with great service at a great price. My recent trip wasn't fantastic all round. I got the potato and leek soup to start, which was simple yet fantastic. For main I got the chicken with chorizo and spinach. The chicken was perfectly cooked, and the flavours were... More

I am glad to hear you have enjoyed your time in Bennetts Bistro although sad to hear about the vegetarian options. We have just changed our veggie burger a few weeks ago as per customers request as we have many vegetarians who eat at Bennetts who felt it is a great burger now, although it will never suit everyone.

My husband and I called into Bennet's on a unplanned meal out. My husband was not happy that I picked to go here, he grumbled a bit because he said there was too much fish on the menu, especially the specials menu, but he was pleasantly surprised with his meal. Steak & chips for him and pulled pork burger &... More
