Fresh pizza. Nice jugs of beer. Lovely setting. We've eaten outside with the dog. Really great tapas cheese and meat. Garlic bread is awesome. Just lovely

We popped into Bencotto's on Sunday lunch time for a pizza and salad. We were served quickly and delightfully and enjoyed both food and drink. The restaurant is very nicely decorated in a modern way, you can see the chefs at work and the atmosphere is very pleasant

Ate here tonight. We shared a small meze(£11), salad, warm pitta bread, halloumi and Greek style dips. Really good. Then shared squid ink pasta with seafood (£13?). Also very good. Followed by 3 scoops of different ice creams....vanilla, strawberry and pecan. With a bottle of Fiano(£18.50). Just under £50. Loved it. The restaurant is in an old fire station, lovely... More

It was converted from being a fire station into a cafe with comfortable seats a good selection of lovely coffees. It is licensed and they provide a good variety of food served during the day and evening. Its always my first choice when meeting with friends. Plus, their loos are very clean and well kept!

We visited this evening as a party of 6 adults and 3 children and had to make some very specific dietary requirements in advance. These were handled with an exceptional level of care and detail with the chef even calling us personally to ensure all the components of a specific dish were suitable. We are local so have visited here... More

Went there on Saturday evening as we were staying with friends. Fab place, couldn't book but didn't have to wait too long for a table. My husband had the fish stew and my friend and I had the slow cooked beef. Think Mel2036's meal must have been a one off as ours was excellent, no complaints what so ever. My... More
