Booked for a pre show meal as we were attending the De La Warranty Pavilion. Food was great with lots of gluten free options, drinks were fabulous, especially the cocktails but more importantly the staff were brilliant, friendly and attentive tube but not overbearing. Would definitely eat there again if in the area

Having been before, we decided as it was a special occasion, we came again, and was not disappointed, we were catered for as requested, my partner has walking difficulties so front of house was required.

we found the staff attentive and the service was prompt, we felt quite relaxed in the nice atmosphere.

The meal was excellent, I had the special hanging fillet, my partner the half rack ribs with a sauce to die for (her words)

We easily recommend this restaurant, and will come again

A great find. The staff were attentive and helpful. The atmospherics were great. Nice to see such a restaurant thriving in Bexhill. The food was amazing and was the best rib eye steak I’ve had in a long long time. Will definitely be visiting again.

We went for my daughter's 18th , the staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough. Mollie the waitress, was her name. The food was lovely , We all enjoyed it. It was a little chilli in there but was comfortable enough, but the toliets were freezing!!! Will return again.

Absolutely amazing brilliant ambience and the food is to good to be true, best sirloin steak ive had in this country. My one and only annoyance is the "beer list" they only sell the standard bottles of beer and only 2 or 3 different brands but apart from that superb!!

been a few times before and has been good but this time was very poor. 2 steaks inedible, 2 others rather tasteless, not what you expect from a restaurant supposedly serving 28 day aged beef. Had mine replaced and to be honest it was much better, but by the time I got it everyone else had finished. I hope they are not cutting corners by buying cheap cuts to compete with the new pub down the road. Wife's 60th birthday meal spoilt a bit.
Also charged for drinks we didn't have, get your act together please.

As always Bentley's is a good place to go. Service is fine and they don't rush you despite filling up rapidly. You must book though as there aren't that many places in Bexhill that are really good.

One thing to watch here is how the ribs come. Twice now, one set of ribs was virtually perfect, while the other were quite burnt, so much so that it altered the taste significantly. Unfortunately mu daughter got the burnt set and, not knowing better just ate them. I finished off a couple of ribs and they were quite unpleasant. I'll happily go again, but this time I'll taste her food.

I guess this can happen anywhere, especially with this type of cuisine, but worth noting. Don't let it put you off, it's one of the best places in Bexhill, just be fussy about your food.

The tenessee bourbon glaze used with the steaks - which are superb - and the exceptional tenessee chicken strips starter is worth a visit for that alone. Fantastic place and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We were welcomed by friendly staff and given the option of tables.
Staff were great. Not pushy at all, it felt like they really enjoyed their work.
Drinks arrived quickly as did food. The food was great, good potion sizes too.
I felt like we could have stayed there all evening, the waiting staff were attentive but not in our faces. A fab evening had by us all.

We had a fantastic evening at Bentley’s this week to celebrate a birthday with friends. The atmosphere was great and the steaks were out of this world! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we were the last to leave! Thank you for a wonderful evening, I would certainly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for good quality, local food and great atmosphere!

Great food, great service and a lovely experience. One of the best steaks I have eaten in the UK in the last 10 years. Chips were really tasty as was their signature bourbon glaze. Will recommend to everyone I know. Certainly a gem of a steakhouse.

Very good value for high end, well matured meat. I've eaten here twice and both times the meat has been excellent.
Jacob's Ladder short rib, FABULOUS, perfectly cooked, and still juicy inside. The meat looks dry, but it's actually a gorgeous crust, rich and gamey.
The burgers are dense, large and full flavoured. The spinach side was fresh and vibrant. The steaks are fabulous.
All the desserts are luscious, my mini macarons were just the perfect end.

Oopses:
The burger buns disintegrate way too fast, they definitely need a bit more heft to them.
The mash is very dense, and tasted like it had been under a heat lamp for too long.
Coleslaw needed work, PLEASE STOP PUTTING CORIANDER IN COLESLAW. It's too creamy, as it needs to be sharp to contrast the rich meat. Needs vinegar or lemon salt added.

I booked online ,and the process was dead easy,always a plus. Reason was a family celebration to welcome my daughter and her partner after they too moved to Bexhill. I requested a booth in the any requirements box. Again, no problem. This was the third time my wife and I had dined at this restaurant but the first time with other family members, always a worry with recommendations. We need,nt have worried. We received excellent friendly service from "Jo". We dined on some fantastic steak and chicken. The steak was a delight and cooked as requested. Compliments to the chefs. In fact a great evening all round. Thanks to all members of staff. Thoroughly recommend a visit.
