“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

This is a pleasant place to eat, but the restaurant is separate from the pub. We were confused until the girl keeping bar helped us figure it out. She helped us get our food from the bar menu (I wanted the hamburger everyone raved about) and took us to the restaurant. Once there we had a great server, Tia, wish I had gotten the other girl's name too. The service is a five star, food only a four, parking is basically unavailable so be prepared.

“Unexpected Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Just popped on here with my daughter looking to watch the footy, unfortunately not showing it but stayed for a pint anyway. guy behind the bar heard us talking about how we had been to a few pubs in the area and footy was not beings shown, lent us his I phone to watch the end of the game, now that’s what I call service, nice friendly staff and a good atmosphere 10/10 for me.

“Lovely traditional roasts.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

If you want a roast as good as home cooked then the Bencollen is the place for you. Their Sunday roasts are very tasty and you get a generous amount; I never have room for pud!
If you want veggie option the chef does a very good but roast but you do need to give him notice.
