Meal for 3 well catered for in busy surroundings last night Sat 25th Feb. Three elderly folk well looked after. Upon request, I got my cod grilled rather than deep fried, thanks. We will be back soon.

Had Christmas dinner at the Bentra last Christmas, and it was everything you could want, (without the cookling and washing up),Set 3 course meal, with a choice of menu, perfectly cooked, a good atmosphere, and a good wine list. Booking is essential at Christmas, but drop in is catered for throughout the rest of the year.

Rainy, windy night, and tired from running about. Why cook when you can go to Bentra Grill? Tempted into taking the Steak Special on offer. You get a great gravy boat full of either peppercorn sauce, or gravy. There were two of us, so we had one of each. Your steak comes with tobacco onions, sauteed onions, and a choice... More

Eat here last night with a group of 18, never been before but was certainly impressed, we had our own private conservatory to dine in, and service was excellent, meal was delicious everyone agreed. £17.95 for 4 courses excellent.

We eat at Bentra quite often these days. Being a creature of habit I tend to order the sirloin which is always perfectly cooked to my liking. Sometimes I go for the fish chips and mushy peas which is also very good. Thankfully they don't put mint in the peas, who dreamed that up. They also do a great breakfast... More
