Here at Ben’s Canteen we’ve been thinking about our menu for quite some time. We’ve been pushing the British Food, Done Well theme and we’ve really enjoyed serving this food up.
However, over the last few months we’ve also been thinking about cities and what we like about them. Fun and diversity are the key elements. So, with this in mind we’ve rejigged our menu, loosened up on the British theme and cranked up the Canteen element (think comfort food but with really good produce – most of which is brilliant British stuff).
Now for those of you fretting, fear not, the All Day Breakfast Scotch Egg and BC Burger remain! To the starters we’ve added sliders (mini-cheeseburgers) and for the veggies who’ve had to cope with scotch egg jealously, we’ve added a veggie version which uses mushrooms instead of sausage meat. We’re also expecting the jerked chicken and popcorn prawns to be a real hit.
On the burger front, as we said the BC Burger remains and now it’s joined by some winners such as the French Dip (a beef sandwich where the bread is dipped in gravy, with melted cheese) which went down so well at the Independence Day Dinner, we couldn’t not have it. We’re also doing a pulled pork bap and a mushroom burger.
We’ve revamped the mains and have some homemade meatballs with cheesy cauliflower & squash mash which are awesome. We’ve got mussels with cider, leeks and shredded ham hock, carrot and coriander fritters, fish and chips with London Lager batter and a rib-eye steak with a portobello mushroom topping.
At the Canteen we all love chips, so we thought, what the hell, lets create a dedicated chip menu. So now, alongside hand cut chips you can also get Nicky’s chicken salt chips, chilli cheese chips, chips n’ gravy and sweet potato chips.
We’ve also got a whole bunch of new sharers including mac & cheese with bacon, deep fried pickles and Buffalo wings.
For those of you thinking about salads, we’ve got a Cobb salad, homemade fish cakes with a leaf salad and a seasonal number too.
And for those looking to finish with a treat, you need to check out our Potted Chocolate which involves chocolate mousse, crushed oreo’s and jelly worms.
Click here to check out the new dinner menu and here to book (the 2 courses for £20 and a glass of wine offer remains, however, the Sunday BBQ is no longer – Sunday brunch will run until 4pm and then dinner will kick in at 6pm).
We’re super excited and we’re sure it will mean even more good times at Ben’s Canteen – the place on the hill.
