We expected better from our first visit to the Bentlands. On the positive side, the large sharing platter made a great starter and raised our expectations for the main courses. The selection of drinks was good too (real ales and a choice of wine by the glass). However, the main meals were poor. The chilli (their speciality!) lacked flavour and was simply not fiery enough for a 'real' chilli. The rice it came with had not been drained so the bowl was flooded with water. We sent this meal back. My chimmichanger had a watery tasteless filling, not as good as the one I had a Chiquittos a few nights ago.
Maybe we caught them on a bad day. Maybe it was the chefs night off. We probably won't return.
