Great food, very attentive service. Lovely place to go for brunch.
Good food and great service. We enjoyed the atmosphere here too. It’s always busy on the weekend but Friday mornings are perfect!
Made a reservation on Opentable with 2 course and a drink for 18 pounds. We indicated to one of the waiters that is what we were going to have. When the bill came they charged us for 3 course meal stating a glass of wine was a course... I indicated to them that is not what is on your website, they said they changed their menu and wouldn't honour my reservation (2 course + 1 drink at 18). On top of that, that night and the next day was terribly ill. Not only is the service crap but the food is not good. DO NOT GO !
Noisy but cozy
The food was really good, but I've now been here twice recently and I found the service rather poor, they weren't accommodating at all and were borderline rude sadly, shame because the food is worth a visit.
Have been a wee bit hesitant to go back since it became so popular. Thank goodness I did!! Gordon was an absolute delight - really fab to meet someone in the industry who actually cares about the guest. Sandra, a nurse as well as working here was so chatty and lovely! I have re fallen in love with Ben’s and the management should be proud to have them on their team. Thank you
Love Ben's Canteen! The food is different and delicious!
It was a great Sunday brunch, helped by the fact that the sun was also shining. The front part of this restaurant is much nicer with a lot of natural light. Food was good and arrived quite quickly but it took forever to get the bill, which was funny. I would however not recommend the pancakes. I found them underwhelming.
Great staff, good food and fun place to meet friends
No complaints! Great food, friendly service and a nice atmosphere. Good value for money, (even better if you have a Tastecard - and no hassle whatsoever)
We went for dinner on Saturday evening and it was far too loud - couldn’t hear friends sitting right next to me. Staff were apologetic however I will not be going back for an evening meal.
Always love coming to Ben’s - the Bloody Mary is worth the trip alone!
Great food and atmosphere. Shame the service let it down. Always hovering at the end of the meal making us feel pressure to leave and one server had to ask another one to take our order again even after they’d already taken it - not quite sure what was going on! Would go back for the food and just make sure you’re not in a rush!
Really lovely atmosphere, great food and fab service. Really good selection on the brunch menu - our party of 6 were all being a bit difficult with tweaking what they had on the menu (poached egg instead of scrambled etc), but they were totally happy to accommodate and everything came out perfectly. Would definitely recommend (and already have) and will certainly be back!
I have been wanting to go here for a while albeit for brunch. Went there for dinner instead and it was good but below our expectations. Service was great but the food was nothing I'd recommend.
Picked this place for brunch because it was dog-friendly. Highly recommended if you want to bring your pooch out for a meal—they give em water. Brunch was also delicious.
Great good and really good service - friendly and helpful staff that made our evening event better!
Very friendly relaxed atmosphere
Their Recovery Burger has ruined a certain yellow fast food establishments breakfast muffins for me for life. SO yummy!!
Four of us went for dinner one evening - the place was packed and there were a couple of Christmas parties in, making a HORRENDOUS amount of noise, adults squawking and squealing like toddlers. Now this isn't the fault of Ben's Canteen but it really started to ruin our night as we couldn't speak to each other and even the waiter couldn't hear what we were ordering.
Eventually some space became available at the other end of the restaurant so we moved there and it was a much better atmosphere.
Apart from that......
They only sell one type of cider, of which they didn't actually have any
The food took a VERY long time to come (probably due to the xmas parties so I couldn't say if that was normal)
One of the things I ordered - the topped xmas roasties weren't as described on the menu. They came with no crispy bacon or stuffing, and instead had a few bits of turkey thrown in. I wouldn't have minded if they'd told me they were out of some ingredients (though I'd have chosen something else instead), but they didn't mention it.
The rest of the food was nice enough but nothing spectacular.
The prosecco was really nice
The staff were accommodating and understanding about us moving tables
Would I go back? Most definitely not over the Christmas period. Would perhaps go back some other time, but am in no rush to go back
Service disinterested; noise level unpleasant; Smashed Avo good; eggs (with a different dish) completely overcooked; ground black pepper unavailable
We had a fun time but it was very very loud and quite difficult to get the waitress’ attention / other staff weren’t able to help because they weren’t “our waitress”.
Good variety of brunch food.
Food was a lot worse than I remember, I used to be a regular but it seems to have really suffered since I was last here earlier in the year. The food was average, and the service was terrible.
Great bottomless brunch, attentive service and buzzing atmosphere
Lots of individuals on laptops working, very relaxed and low key. Exceptionally good burger (good meat, perfectly cooked). Good meeting place. Very friendly staff. Casual atmosphere, unpretentious.
Lovely place for an afternoon brunch. We were seated on a high table opposite the bar. Very warm and comfortable, except whenever the smoothie machine was on it was very loud and made conversation quite difficult!
Food was delicious, drinks were great, however service was a little slow.
But overall, a great experience, and we'll definitely be back, but maybe with a table away from the noise!
Relaxed, good place for dinner, friendly staff and good food. Burger was delicious, craft beer was cold. Recommend.
Nice shabby-chic decor, good selection of drinks, and the food was good, but let down by incredibly slow service. 2.5hrs for a quick meal for two is not really okay. I wouldn't mind if we were really drawing it out, but we weren't - there were just massive gaps between courses. If they can sort out the turnaround time in the kitchen then I would definitely be back, but if not I would give it a miss.
Very average and overpriced food, super noisy, won't be back
Really great food, great staff and great experience
Lovely place, amazing food and great service.
I used to eat at Ben's Canteen regularly but have since moved out of the area...so I was very keen to return when I went back to Clapham Junction. It didn't disappoint, still delicious food, good service and cool decor. Recommend.
Ben's canteen used to be a place where myself and my cousin used to regularly meet for a catch up over some delicious American Diner style food. However as soon as we walked into the restaurant we knew something had changed. Firstly the wall hangings had been taken down making the whole place feel soulless. We were shown to our table but I later received a no show email from Open Table. We looked at the menu which used to focus on burgers and now only had 4/5 options. We desperately searched the menu for our favourite dish the duck nuggets but there were no longer there and its place were 'duck and ginger balls'. This is where the disappointment began. The waitress came over to take our order and she had to keep checking the menu to see what we were referring to. She had no knowledge of the menu and couldn't answer a single one of our queries. We enjoyed a glass of wine whilst we were waiting for our food. To our surprise our burgers came before our starters. We asked the waitress why this had happened and she replied saying they were 'sharing plates' not 'starters'. However, on the menu there is a section of starter/sharing plates. She should have asked if we wanted them as starters or together with the burgers. When the food was bought we told her said wanted our starters first she was very rude and stormed off. One of the starters we ordered was on the original menu (chicken pieces) was served completely differently, before it had slices of succulent chicken with a selection of sauces but now in its place was 3 small dry pieces of chicken with 2 pots of disappointing sauces. The other two starters we ordered were equally as disappointing. When we tucked into our burgers they were overcooked and not pink how they previously used to be served. I approached one of the managers who I recognised from our previous visits and told him my feedback, I was disappointed to learn it was his final night. This was the icing on the cake and I can say that I won't be returning.
Great food interesting variety of things on the menu so something for everyone. Staff are lovely and very accomodating for our lunch with 2 toddlers, 2 babies and a dog. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks for looking after us :)
This was our 3rd visit to Ben's. We normally have dinner but had breakfast here this time. Excellent selection of choices. Great value for money and the food was fantastic as usual. Not to mention my new favourite thing the coco pop latte!
Great place for a fun afternoon or evening. Very relaxed, food was good, overall great value for money
Wonderful Sunday evening with friends, delicious food and very attentive and friendly service! Great gin&tonic list..Worth 5 stars! We will be back!
Went for dinner on a Sunday but have previously been for brunch which was great. Dinner didn't disappoint. The Korean chicken burger and Korean pork loaded fries were amazing and Gordon our waiter was friendly and attentive.
After seeing reviews I went with friends and was not disappointed. The atmosphere was great and the staff were friendly. The food was good. We will definitely go again.
