“Return to Bentleys”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Having not been to Bentleys for a while I'd forgotten how good it was. On arrival we was greeted by the owner (Roy) and was directed to the downstairs lounge whilst we waited for everyone in the party (of 12) to arrive. Obviously being a table of twelve everyone decided they wanted separate bills, to which we was told would not be a problem.
When the food arrived it was absolutely gorgeous and there were no complaints at all and to be honest serving a party of 12 and not one complaint is really good in my book.There were even extra bowls of chips, salad and veg on the table brought out by the owner for free.
When the bills came there was no problems and they had separated them exactly how we had asked. (We even noticed on our bill one of our bottle of wines had been given to us for free )
Thank you Roy !

All in all it was a very pleasant evening with no problems and great food. I would highly recommend this restaurant for parties or for couples. Suffice to say we will be visiting again soon.

“delicious food”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

I went to Bentleys a few weeks ago for a friend's birthday. We was a table of four. The service we received was lovely very helpful friendly staff. We got served some complimentary Champaign as we was celebrating a birthday.
we all had starters and mains the chicken in garlic butter is out of this world it was amazing. Very good portion sizes with a lovely side salad or vegetables, you can chooses from chips, New potatoes or dophenwa potatoes (sorry about the spelling) these where delicious. My partner had steak which was cooked to perfection. None of us could manage a pudding but they sure looked yummy.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and will return in the very near future.

“Welcoming staff and honest food.”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Bentley's does not call itself a Restaurant, it is a Grill and Lounge and so don't expect elaborate, fancy food. It is straightforward well-cooked meat, vegetables and potatoes of your choice. It is a very pleasant atmosphere and on a Wednesday evening there's an excellent pianist and a singer with a good voice which does not really require the microphone provided.
The service is very good, observant staff who check the tables regularly, almost too regularly. This is a comfortable, relaxing place to go with friends. The food is not going to appeal to people who want frills, but it is sensibly priced for what it is. I would recommend the Lamb Shank.

“Excellent Food and Service!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

My partner and I have visited Bentley's a few times with friends and we have never been disappointed! Our most recent visit with friends was brilliant! As ever, we were greeted at the door and browsed the menu whilst having drinks in the warm and welcoming bar/lounge area. We ordered and were seated in the dining room when our meals were ready to be served. I had garlic breaded mushrooms with a lovely side sauce and accompanying garnish then a Sirloin steak which was cooked to absolute perfection! One of the few estabilishments I have managed to get my steak cooked as requested! Lots of great quality food, excellent value for money and very pleasent staff! Could not have wished for more from our visit!
