First time I had eaten there and found it very pleasant. Really friendly service and food was excellent. Lovely ambience, 30's style dining tables to reflect character of the building. Lovely lunch!
Very nice atmosphere and lovely staff
However the hummus etc was not good and as I am Arabic I know how it should be
Amazing food and service! Everything we ate was delicious with great sized portions! Our waiter also recommended dishes which complimented what we had :)
I haven’t been to Gordon Bennett for a while but was really pleased I made the effort last night.
The tapas were absolutely brilliant and very interesting. There was something on the menu for everyone.
Really good service too.
Took friends for breakfast - the food was great and the service brilliant. The staff are friendly and efficient and remember you from previous visits which makes you feel even more welcome.
Food and service outstanding as always
Drinks and tapas. On the whole the food was very good, it didn’t get a 5 as the soft crab had next to no crab so pricey at £8, the other tapas were all good. We had trio of burgers, patatas bravas, cod bites and duck balls. The duck was my favourite. I also had a margarita on the rocks which was good too. Service was good and friendly.
took the family here for lunch on Sunday, the food was uninspiring and the atmosphere was just dead
A lovely brunch cooked to order. Superb service throughout. Thank you.
Great tapas menu wonderful service wine list a bit limited but good.
Great evening here with my parents. Always great food and atmosphere. Lovely and attentive staff.
Food was very disappointing. It did not look bad but it did not taste fresh and the crab and potatoes were very greasy. Would not come back
The tapas were very tasty & the staff were friendly & very helpful.
The service is always excellent. Great food and friendly atmosphere. Have been many times for casual breakfasts and more dressy dinners with friends.
Lovely atmosphere, staff were friendly and the tapas we ordered were really tasty.
I love this place! My friend and I went out for dinner here last night and I couldn’t fault the food or the service! Definitely worth a visit guys!
Poor Choice of Menu, certainly not as good as before, Chicken Burger taken off the menu
We had the "tapas" menu. Tapas in the sense of small dishes, but not really Spanish. Very good prawns and soft shell crab, squid a little chewy. Pork belly a little fatty, duck croquettes OK. Halloumi fries good. Friendly waitress. Reasonable prices.
Great place, excellent food and friendly staff. Would recommend but not for cosy chat as noise level very high.
The food was disappointing. The squid and the pork were tough, the asparagus was excellent, the padron peppers good and the Patatas not very bravas. Soft shelled crab was nice but doesn’t go with the stuff they serve it on.
It’s a great wine bar and I’ve eaten here before and liked it. I was disappointed this time.
Was lovely. Great service Feels very safe and so nice to be out. Food great. Nice attentive staff. All good
many thanks Marty, So glad you are enjoying GB's.
Attentive but unobtrusive service, good food and drinks recommendations. The food was hot, fresh and tasty.
Always amazing food, drinks and service! Love it here.
Thats wonderful too hear , thank you
We have been going to Gordon Bennett’s for a long time. We like the venue, the decor and music. It’s always been a very cool local pub.
The food has always been very good until last night. We were really disappointed for example, the spring green dish which cost £7.00 was a plate of boiled vegetables, which was tasteless. My wife is a vegetarian, and the range was very poor. We think the menu needs more thought, and more cohesion as it certainly isn’t a good example of a tapas menu.
It’s a shame, as we were really disappointed.
Hi Mike, We are so sorry to hear that we have disappointed you, especially since you have supported us so long We have taken on board your comments and have immediately updated the greens and we hope you will enjoy our new asparagus dish, which is going down well. And yes we did price incorrectly. We hope your wife will try us again, we are obviously running a restricted menu while our business is being so heavily restricted and hope to go full menu by mid september, so do give us another try.
Lovely tapas menu - excellent halloumi fries. Friendly, welcoming service and atmosphere.
My only feedback on the food I had would be more Parmesan with the greens - but then I’ll always want more cheese.
Already planning a return visit.
Good call on the Parmesan, fixed - oh and we updated our greens to reflect the current British Asparagus season
Great menu, friendly staff, delicious food. Welcoming environment and dog friendly, so pleased to have Gordon Bennett open again.
Many thanks Angie, great to be open.
Lovely place for a nice simple meal & catch up with friends
We enjoyed a delicious selection of the tapas and cold beer. The service was friendly and efficient and the whole place has a mellow, cosy vibe.
A really lovely local gem. Excellent food (modern tapas that really delivers on flavour) and a very reasonable price with a wide range of drinks and cocktails. The staff are friendly and efficient and really make you feel welcome. Can't recommend it enough. So glad that they are open again!
Friendly, helpful staff, excellent choice of food, well presented and tasty. Good drinks menu too! Very enjoyable evening, will book again.
Friendly cheerful staff; interesting relaxed atmosphere and not rushed off the table after 1.5hrs like most places these days! A thoroughly enjoyable night out, looking forward to going back when restrictions allow.
This is a great local bar with fantastic service and great food. Highly recommended.
Weekend breakfast treat.
Farmers market breakfast was excellent. Bottomless coffee just right.
The Service from Ben & Issy brilliant.
Went for brunch, with my little boy. They did everything they could to make us feel welcome. My waiter Ben was brilliant. I’ll definitely be going back
Delicious food and cocktails. A hidden gem
Really enjoyed breakfast, good ingredients, great service, great venue with lots of light in the day.
