We were there early in the evening so very quiet but staff moving furniture about was noisy! Food was ok though flimsy menus (bit of A4 paper) were a bit hard to decipher and got wet easily from condensation from drinks. Lighting rather odd. Ladies loos in poor state considering the quiet time between lunch and evening service would surely be a good time to check them and sort them out... Can't say I plan to go back. Shame.
First visit to BC and bit of a shame, I would have loved to have give it a higher score but the service really let the place down.
We booked online no problem and arrived with parking available & close to it. On arrival it was fairly quiet.. we was welcomed by an enthusiastic bar tender who checked the booking and sent us through to the restaurant type at the back.
Decor pretty trendy.. but did also notice that even though there was only a few tables in they were waiting ages to have their main course plates cleared and they ended up leaving before the server cleared. To put it into context we was waiting one hour till our starter arrived & the drinks we had to chase to get within that time.
I noted four members of staff and probably only five tables of customers so it’s a poor show if they can’t get plates cleared.
We were due to go the cinema after our dinner but we missed the showing because the service is just so slow!
Food on the upside is very yummy. Burgers tasty and loaded chips probably the best I’ve tasted that’s why it hurts to give a low score but unfortunately service is an embarrassment on BC if Friday night is to represent them and they need to look into extra training or stepping up a speed gear for certain members of the team. There was a female working and she seemed the only one to have forward thinking of calling mains away on courses where as a fella that was working just seemed like a rabbit in the headlights.
Drove past BC today and looked like they were busy, way more trade than Friday night..
Terrible service - we were one table of only 3 groups in there and we had to keep shouting across the restaurant to get any service!! Shame, as the food was lovely
Service a bit slow. Food was nice and well priced but got caught out with extortionately priced drinks. Won’t rush back for dinner but coffee or lunch yes.
It was our first time visiting Ben's Canteen, and we couldn't have had a better experience. The décor and theme of the place is awesome! Very retro and stylish, the food was fantastic, and very fairly priced. The service was good - could perhaps have been a touch more engaging/chatty but other than that the place was faultless... and they have an awesome soundtrack!
Thank you Ben's Canteen!
Really good food service was a bit slow and took ages to get food. When food came it was amazing.
Good food but the service was really slow, food arrived before coffee which is the worst - but would definitely go back.
I came here for brunch with a friend and it was amazing! The buttermilk fried chicken on toast is delicious and something I'd highly recommend. We also had the grilled banana pancakes that were really good, but in my opinion, these were slightly too dry - a little extra sauce/mascarpone would have made them perfect. I will definitely be back to try some of their other dishes
Went there to celebrate my Birthday with the bottomless dinner with few friends. The food was delicious, staff very friendly, even recommended other local bars to go after our dinner. I've been there before for brunch and the food is really good. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be back!
I found this spot on Pinterest, top 10 brunches in London. It was so delicious! If you go for breakfast, ask for extra hollandaise sauce, you’ll want it.
Came here for brunch on my birthday - the place itself is great, nice open space with comfy sofas and good ambience. The food itself was delicious and not too expensive. However, the service was really bad. Very slow bringing us drinks, got the food order wrong multiple times and were then slow to rectify (although they did take money off the bill for this) and it took a long time for our plates to be cleared. As we were having a leisurely brunch and were relaxed it didn't detract too much from the occasion, however, I would not recommend this place if you're looking for a speedy, efficient meal! Overall it's a lovely chilled place and with decent service would be 10/10.
Have been there a few times and decided to bring my boyfriend’s family as they came from Colombia to travel for a while. As soon as we arrived there was nobody there to take us to our table but it was fine because you could notice they were busier than they usually are. We sat down and soon we ordered our food (it took us at least 10 minutes to order because the waitress seemed not to know about anything on the menu), everything was lovely and delicious but when we finished they took pretty long to offer us the deserts. Patiently we waited until we saw the waitress who was serving us and asked her for the deserts we wanted. Well, we were in 7 but only 3 of us were having deserts, it took longer to get them than the main courses (around 20/30 minutes). Although everything was extremely good, hopefully next time the service will be a bit easier for us and for the staffs. Would still recommend it!
I want to love this place. It’s at the end of my road and I like the brand and the style of the place. There’s a couple of things that need ironing out and it could be great.
They’ve just introduced small plates so we went along to try them. Nice idea, but a lot of them are very deep fried. Some fresher and greener things in this menu would be appreciated. Also, with small tables and a lot of gumpf already on them, there wasn’t much space for our plates!
We booked on tastecard. The offer here is two for one. We ordered six dishes and expected to receive three free. Not only did I check on the tastecard app that everything on a la cart menu was included in the offer, I even checked that the card would be accepted before we ordered from the small plates menu. When the bill came they took two plates (out of six) off and point blank refused to take any more off. They need to either come off tastecard or be clearer about what they offer.
On top of this, as always, the service in this place is terrible. Please train your staff not to just hang around the bar chatting. We asked three times for water, had to ask for our food after half an hour and practically Mexican wave down our waiter whenever we wanted anything.
I follow Ben’s on instagram. There is clearly someone leading this brand who is thinking hard about the offering and pushing the marketing really hard. It’s just a shame that something is always missing in the delivery.
Visited Ben's yet again with my boyfriend and his cousin for a catch up. Great food, with a great offer on the burgers on a Tuesday night. Burgers were top notch, as were the drinks and the duck croquettes, although chips were a little soggy (which is unusual).
Will definitely be back again very very soon.
Have been there twice before this last time and had always loved it. The ambience is lovely, the waitress was super attentive and friendly, the food was completely delicious. Value is very good and fair for every single meal/drink. Would highly recommend it and surely will be back! Lots of love for all the staffs
Amazing food, amazing service. Ahehx jdbdkdbxhx xhx xjxbxj (that was just to make up the letters)
Food & drinks were delicious! We went for the 90 minutes bottomless option, and the only comment I would make is that service was a little slow for this - both trying to find someone to place order with and then waiting for the drink to arrive. Overall we had a really good experience though & enjoyed our brunch!
Was probably the best sunday roast i've ever had to pay for. Atmosphere was good, had a good soundtack playing in the backround and Staff were nice.
Went for brunch had fantastic service and avo smash was delicious!!!
I visited Ben's Canteen for Sunday Brunch with a group of 8 - the pre-booking facility made it so easy for such a large group on usually busy Sundays. Apart from cold coffees (quick rectified) it was fab and the staff were brilliant. As a local, will of course be back!
Loved dining here and the breakfast/brunch menu was amazing with lots to offer. I am gluten free and it can make eating out tricky but not here. Only thing is it was a bit over priced, especially when the place opposite has almost the exact same menu for less money. Would still dine there though, and interested in trying the evening menu too
I love Ben's Canteen, The coffee, food and atmosphere is great! Plus lots of yummy aussie treats.
Great service, friendly atmosphere and most importantly- good food :)
Went for the new Sunday roasts. They were tasty and had a good range on sides.
I wish this place would put a bit more time into training their staff. It’s almost impossible to get someone over to the table after you’re seated. They’re very nice when they do come over but it’s an exercise in frantic waving to order or get a drink.
We were looked after really well for our Father’s Day/birthday breakfast, fantastic food and service!
Reception was frosty to say the least from a gentleman ( but luckily had a lovely girl serving us) and was then later chased down the road and accused of stealing (we had paid) - food was ok but nothing special - was so looking forward to going so really disappointed
I found the food quite expensive for what it was, and the menu very very limited (we went there for brunch).
The service was quite poor - we were sitting outside and had to chase the waiter for things everytime.
The quality of the food was nice but in my personal opinion lacked seasoning a lot (so did my friends).
The area and the overall set up was very nice though.
I went to Ben's Canteen with friends I see rarely as I had enjoyed my birthday there a few weeks ago. We waited for at least 15 minutes for the food/drinks menus...a small matter. What was so disappointing was that one table dominated the restaurant. They were clearly on some sort of 'bottomless brunch' offer. It was so noisy and impossible to converse with our friends. No attempt was made to ask these people to keep the noise down. We left without ordering desserts/coffees (we moved to another place for that) - as did other diners. I have met Ben and know he would not have tolerated this had he been there. Shame, as the food is really good. I would be reluctant to recommend Ben's now, which is also a shame as I've been singing its praises recently.
The food was amazing and the servings were decently sized. Lovely staff.
Great food, lots of options in the menu. The ambience was fun as well.
Love this place however it’s bit on the pricey side! £7.50 for a small Acai bowl!
This place does really decent burgers and a very inventive brunch. On this occasion we went in to try the new evening menu. They’ve started doing a steak, which was very nice. I still wish the non burger menu was a little more inventive.
New to the area, went for brunch and it was delicious! Will be back again very soon
We love Ben’s Canteen! And the one in Earlsfied is a thousand times better than the one in Clapham, especially in service!
The service was excellent. There was a problem with my gluten free meal but the staff were so helpful and sorted it all out for me to ensure my food was gluten free
We had a fabulous time last Saturday with our bottomless bubbles experience! Great atmosphere, lovely food, very generous on the prosecco front .....and very popular - we’ll definitely be back with rest of our mates 🥂 thanks guys!
Service was very slow. Had to chase the waiting staff for our side orders and drinks to then be told that the kitchen had ran out of chips.
Unfortunately would not recommend
Came here for a brunch with my bridesmaids, as always it was delicious. Love the menu, especially the pancakes.
Great venue, and great food. Child friendly during the day, and I’m sure it’s a great spot for the evening sans kids as well
Great afternoon spent drinking bottomless bubbles with friends😋
