My husband and i had dinner here. We ordered a fish and chips dinner. The fish was cooked perfectly and the fries nice and crisp though for our personall taste, we felt they were too salty. Less is best...we can add more if we want....The local IPA beer was very tasty. Our server was friendly and efficient. Our only complaint would be the surprise on the bill of having to pay extra for gravy and coleslaw...1.99 each. We thought it came with the meal. That was a first!!! The fish was 15.00 so this meant an extra 4.00. All in all we recommend this pub.!More

This restaurant deserves a higher Trip Advisor rating! Most restaurants are closed on Mondays, which is the day we arrived. After checking Trip Advisor, Mercers seemed like a possibility but it was closed for a private event. The owner suggested we try Bentleys which was...just across the street. We asked to be seated in a quiet area, which is rather difficult in a bar/restaurant with various sporting events on large tv screens. We were seated in a comfortable booth in their 2nd room area. During covid we prefer booths, so this was fine. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. The soup we ordered (carrot, sweet potato, and honey) was absolutely delicious - such a pleasant surprise! Equally surprising was that it was a rather large bowl with thick soup - most unusual because so many times in restaurants we are served soup that seems to be half water. Our entrees, vegetarian flat bread, were also very good. We will definitely return to this restaurant.More

Stopped in for a take-out order while running another errand in Stratford. I asked the business owner where he would recommend I go for a decent burger and fries. He suggested Bentleys. Other options were closed until 4 PM The poutine was very bizarre. Not...sure I’ve ever had this flavour of gravy on a poutine, and it did it no favours. The cheese “curds” were not fresh, the fries were well seasoned but undercooked. Quite shocked to see my burger with 3/4 of a single ring of onion that wouldn’t wrap around the golf ball, wilted lettuce and two thin pickles on the side. Hard to understand how they let it leave the kitchen looking like this. I was pretty disappointed and and underwhelmed to say the least. Would not return. Would not recommend the poutine or burger, to be honestMore

It’s honestly been years since I’ve had service as bad as our table had tonight at Bentley’s. The hostess was awesome and got us seated in a timely fashion. We actually were asked to move tables after we were seated for about 10 mins....so they...could accommodate a larger party. Absolutely, no problem at all. THEN we were seated in the section with the ABSOLUTE WORST SERVER I’ve experienced in years. Rude, abrupt, disrespectful and just downright almost verbally abusive. It almost became laughable by the end of our meal. That being said we still did tip well (20% on our bill of $300) in hopes that kitchen, bar, bussers and hostess staff are getting a bit of the pot as well....so to speak. Sadly, if it were all for the server they wouldn’t have gotten a dime.More

Came for mid-afternoon drinks and some finger foods which were all very tasty. Service was friendly and attentive. Later that evening we returned for a light dinner and tried some of the terrific cocktails. Weather was good so we sat on the patio both times...and enjoyed the street scene. No hesitation recommending this establishment for a fun time out.More
