Went in to try the new dessert menu with my partner a week or so ago, and they were delightful! My pick was the creme brûlée! Atmosphere was warm which was nice on a cold evening, and service with a smile!!

We called for a quick early meal last night. The service was great although we did have to search for staff in the kitchen when we first arrived (it was early - so not an issue from our point of view).

It was a very quiet Wednesday evening when I dined at Bethanys - in fact I think I was the only diner the whole time I was there but perhaps there were others upstairs. I couldn't quite figure out its apparent lack of appeal as it is a pleasant restaurant with nice outlook overlooking the gardens in the Square. Mains... More

Hi John, We do actually have a wine list, our dinner menu has got the house wines and drinks on the back page for those that are just wanting that. The wine list would have been on your table on a little easel. Yes we had other diners upstairs, as that is the first choice for people who book to... More

Visited Bethany's for lunch with my mum & brother today, the waitress who looked after us upstairs was bubbly, friendly and accommodating. (My partner & I also visited recently for dessert & were served by the same waitress, very impressed) It looked as though all the other customers up there were appreciating her great service skills too. I had the... More

The food is outstanding. No question. The atmosphere is barn like with no music and echoes rattling around the space. Bethany's also need to improve their beer fridge. No craft beer to compliment a great menu
