I was meeting with some friends for dinner and they go here quite often. I was so surprised to find a beautiful restaurant looking over the minster. The young lady who showed us to our table couldn't do enough for us. Very helpful with the menu. The meal was one of the nicest i have had in a long time. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

This is a tea room in the day, transforming into an intimate restaurant after 5:30. The service is good, the wine list pleasing and the meals tasty and varied.

We were there for an early meal before attending The Mystery Plays at the Minster. Service was pleasant - one person seemed to be the maitre d' as well as waiter as well as cashier, so a bit difficult for multitasking. She was doing her best effort to please all.
Menu is small, suited us for a quick meal. Food came as advertised. Probably a better choice for lunch and people watching around the Minster than for a dinner.

Although I have lived in the city all my life I had always thought Bennets was a tourist cafe being situated in such a great location opposite the Minster west end but what a pleasant surprise. There was plenty of room inside between tables and the service was polite and friendly. We chose to have scrambled egg with salmon on granary together with Yorkshire tea. The egg and salmon had to be the best we have tasted anywhere and as this is a favourite of ours we can speak with some experience. The bill was reasonable too and we weren't rushed at any time. The view out of the cafe was excellent too especially if you like watching the comings and goings.
