Found this place on the Internet when looking for gluten free places in Stratford. We had a gluten free croque Monsieur and scones, it was lovely! Very good for gluten free. Very big menu for coeliacs :) I had a bacon and Brie baguette which was lovely

We had afternoon tea for our family at Bensons. The gluten free full tea with scone, sandwiches, and cake was amazing. The tea was excellent too. My family was thrilled with their various teas and gluten scones as well. This place was wonderful!

I went for breakfast in this easily overlooked cafe in a small arcade. Great service, great ingredients and at only £5 including a high quality fruit tea Benson's deserves to be better known. Could not fault it, even if the price had been more I could not fault it. Very very good.

Went here for breakfast on a Sunday - and at a fiver can't really be faulted. Between us we had the bacon & eggs and the vegetarian breakfast, both with toast and tea/coffee, for a fiver each. Decent food - the eggs were lovely - service was friendly and fine (wasn't too busy when we were there). The place itself is nothing too special but I wouldn't hesitate going back there for breakfast again next time I'm in Stratford.

I was recently given a gift voucher for champagne afternoon tea at bensons as a present,so last Friday my husband and I took the train to stratford and decided to make a day of it. I must say the whol.e afternoon tea experience was excellent from the moment we arrived they made us feel special it was lovely. needless to say we shall be popping in again next time we are in stratford and I would certainly think about giving one of these vouchers as a gift for someone special
