Very well priced due to it being the watering hole at a club. The food is never poor and it's generally clean and inviting. Have always enjoyed eating and drinking here.

Great to eat here provided there is not a golf function/social function having a meal at the same time (or soon after) There does not seem to be enough staff, nor kitchen capability to cater for both needs - but at other times the food and service is good. It is a golf & leisure club firstly, so many people... More

I had a bean burger and chips which was tasty but nothing special. They have a good value children's menu on offer. I haven't been here for a while but they now have a small play area inside near the cafe tables for small children and a few chairs with small TVs to watch. They also have a small enclosed... More

I love this golf course and the restaurant looks perfect. But our visit was ruined by the saga of the baguette! One of our fourball had breakfast before us and we ordered two egg and bacon baguettes and one beef. Ten minutes later a ham roll arrived. Another ten minutes later I was given a bacon roll with cold grated... More

I've recently joined Benton Hall and have twice eaten in their cafe. The first time, my daughter and I had jacket potatoes and both had bad stomachs and sickness soon after eating. Then, stupidly we decided to eat again as we were both hungry after swimming. My daughter ordered Caesar salad, which was indescribable! Burnt chicken with a strange flavour... More

I don't think so surly staff, off handed attitude present must trail down from top why else would it be tolerated ? 4th attempt at using Cafe had been told that the staff had been changed new chef etc if so who interviews these people ?

We have eaten here a good few times as we are members of the gym, and my Husband a member of the Golf club. The only criticism I hav ever had is when there is an event and I consider that they cannot cater for the masses i.e. Christmas events, etc. However, the food served in the bar area is... More

2 years ago had our corporate golf day at Benton Hall and the quality and amount of food supplied ruined the day for everyone. Recently had lunch there after swimming with my grandson and nothing had changed! The caesar chicken wrap was dry and consisted mainly of iceberg lettuce, a very small portion of dried out chicken with virtually no... More

Ate here on Friday evening, I had the spaghetti and meatballs and there was literally no sauce on the pasta, it was the driest bowl of pasta I'd ever seen, I couldn't eat it. Got it replaced with a burger which was better. My wife had the sausage and mash and said that it could have been out of a... More
