Bench Bistro served the best tapas I have ever had. It is described as British tapas and I think that sums it up beautifully. The food is delicious and 3 plates per person was plenty. The food all comes out on a beautiful bench and...was just amazing. Simply stunning. The chicken noodles were outstanding and definitely the best dish out of the 12 we had even though they were all gorgeous.More

We had a fantastic time yesterday at The Bench Bistro . We were greeted by ‘Natasha’ on arrival who promptly showed us to our table . The bar area is beautifully decorated with colourful flowers . Natasha was attentive to our party taking a drinks...order very promptly so we could settle into deciding on our food choices & there was a huge choice ! As a large group of 8 I thought we may have to wait a while to be served but no we were all pleased to see our food arrive looking fabulous on the bench serving boards . The children’s food arrived first as requested & the remainder followed swiftly. Everything tasted wonderful, fresh & hot . All the staff were lovely & very helpful. Natasha as our waitress was wonderful in establishing it was my dads birthday celebrations & brought out a special brownie & cream pudding with a large candle for him . Totally recommend this place as a fun /family/friend place to eat ! Thank you all & a special thank you to Natasha. We will be back to check out the afternoon tea option !!More

Stumbled across while looking for lunch. Excellent tapas style menu. Staff very welcoming & helpful. Plenty of variety & choice. Food was excellent. The coq & balls is a must have as is the sticky ox cheeks.

We booked a table for a work night out and chose Bench Bistro bar as I have visited here on several occasions. A few of the ladies that joined me that particular night had never been before, and I must say they were delighted with...the outside seating areas. So beautiful. As usual the service was second to none, Livvy, Molly and Libby made sure that we were always topped up with drinks and even Luke from behind the outside bar was amazing. The ladies and I will definitely be back for another works night out to try the cocktails that we didn't try on that night. Thankyou once again for a fabulous night!!!!More

We went out for a friend’s 30th and the service from Molly, Rachel and the team was amazing! There was a lot of us and we probably weren’t the easiest table to serve 😂 but everyone had a great evening, thank you to the girls...and the rest of the team!More

I came to this bar for what I thought was a quiet night , turned out to be quite the opposite. The best service I have ever received. Hilarious - all of them!! And quickly became friends with us 😊. I have never received such...good service, choosing drinks and food for us and generally keeping the atmosphere up. I cannot wait to come back. Molly, Liv, Lib, Rachel. - you made our night! 💘💘💘💘💘 Cannot recommend enough. (And for the Spider-Man fans there’s a Tom Holland look alike in the name of Karl, and his friend Josh is good banter too) Best. Place. Ever.More
