    Don’t bother booking a table at 9pm - when we arrived we were asked to hurry up and order as the kitchen would close in 15mins - not a sentence you want to hear as you arrive! Very disappointed!

    BenchResponded on 19 October 2021

    Hi Zaza, Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention, we have spoken with our team and made it clear guests should never be made to feel this way - this isn't in line with our ethos of relaxed dining and friendly service at Bench and we apologise. We close at 11pm, to make sure guests who book at 9pm still get a full 2 hour slot irregardless of what time you book. Again, we are very sorry you found your experience at bench to be disappointing and hope you will return again.

    Excellent wines and cocktails served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. The light lunch was a perfect accompaniment with a nice selection of cheeses, snacks and a cracking bowl of pasta. Lovely place and worth the trip down from West Yorkshire.

    Food & drink excellent. Service team were knowledgeable and incredibly helpful (and funny - really helps!). Only shame was our booking clearly stated 2h 15 mins and yet we were made to leave after 1h 30 mins as the table was booked. We were still in the process of ordering more food & wine as it was good and we were still hungry.
