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

Went with a friend last Sunday for dinner, from the moment we walked in the door the waitress made it very clear she had no time for anyone. The wine was opened behind the bar and left sitting on the table with glasses and walked away. I most say the food was lovely but we will never be back.

I have visited Bennett's before and had no complaints, but when I had lunch with my mother there today we both were disappointed. Once we ordered, we had to wait ages for our meals. Mum ordered fish and chips, the batter was too hard and seemed to be more batter than fish. I had ordered chicken pie with cheddar mash.... More

Hi Lucinda, I am so sorry for your disappointing experience within our restaurant. I have spoken to my staff who were working on this evening to find out more information and they are correct in saying we do not stock gravy as such in our bistro. We did however have a red wine jus available from one of our other... More

Just arrived and even though it was busy we were seated quickly and service was excellent. Gluten free options were excellent and server was able to explain all options. Meals were fantastic and deserts were perfect. Fairly priced and staff are friendly and efficient. Will return next time we are in the city.

Lovely Bennett's fry, best I have had so I keep going back again and again! Great value for money, everything you could want and more: two fried eggs, two sausages, two rashers of bacon, two pancakes etc and it is beautiful, not greasy at all.
