    It’s a real treat to have Bench in Nether Edge. They break the mould with a different quality to their food and service, you know it’s going to be a great dining experience. I can’t wait to go back and I hope they do really well.

    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.

    Food, drink and service all sensational. The staff really make you feel welcome and at home. The food is next level and for the quality the price is very reasonable. The drinks are obviously to die for. I can’t recommend it enough. Favourite spot in Sheffield hands down.

    Loved our time at bench. Everything incredibly tasty. In none tier three conditions we’d love to come back for wine and small plates, to soak up the atmosphere a bit more, for a full evening. As it was we had an amazing meal with loads of courses and a cocktail or two. Loved everything about it
