Been pass this place on a number of occasions but as it always looked busy we never ventured in.

I don’t know if it is under new management or not but at the weekend one of the young girls was outside inviting people in. so we decided to give it a try.

The girl was very nice and showed us to a table got a high chair and took the pram out of the way.

And changed the high chair when we saw that it was broken.

Ordered a “small” soup for the wee one I had a pie chips and gravy and Mrs M had mac and chees.

The food arrived quickly the soup came with a drink as it was from the kids menu. All for £1.50 and it was not a small soup so the wee one didn’t finish it all .

The pie and chips was very good the gravy was very rich thou , they do do a stew gravy and if the normal gravy is this rich I don’t want to know what the stew type was like.

Mrs M thought the mac and chees was ok but not the best. The Soup was very nice but got cold quite quickly.

The toilets war also very clean although they did not have any baby changing facility’s and when I went looking for it I ended up in a kitchen store room.
Overall what you would expect of a shopping centre café at a reasonable price.

Walking thro the forge and my partner sayed it was lovley here so we stopped off as it was my first time, was shocking to a booth type seat and , table was clean the young girl came over and ask what we would like to drink 2 cans of juice when she cam with them there was some type of liqued in the glasses, and there was no ice.

The meal was lovley and the ice cream was good , really the staff should have a list of the ice cream

When heading to the bathroom you pass the kitchen and its not a great site to see opened containers of food sitting and staff working around

we stumbled into benson's simply because the staff member spoke to us as we were checking it out.and she was so friendly that we thought why not.the first thing we noticed was that we were taking to a table immediately even though it was extremely busy,and given menus.
the menu had a fantastic selection of food depending if it was just a tasty or a full lunch and the usual favourites .
our order was taken as soon as made known we were ready and the staff could not have been more nicer and helpful when discussing the menu.
when the food arrived it was simply delicious,fresh and very very good.
i must comment on the toilettes too,sparkling clean,like the whole establishment.
i would advise anyone to drop in for eats as the whole experience was delightful..and food 20 out of 10..
coffee was also superb and the hot chocolate........
the staff were all professional and very welcoming and helpful..
