Happy New Year y’all! First up, we want to thank you all for supporting Ben’s Canteen last year, we genuinely appreciate it and you guys drive us on to try and get better and better. A special thank you to everyone who voted us to Best Local Restaurant in SW London & Surrey, we were absolutely thrilled to win that award.
As we said, we’re always trying to get better and that’s why amongst lots of other things we have,
- Refurbed the downstairs toilets
- Introduced a cocktail menu, including 2-4-1 Tuesdays
- Offer 2 courses for £20 and a free glass of wine, to give you more value
- Started dinner earlier, you can now eat from 5pm
- Introduced some absolutely cracking boutique gins and a range of whiskies and bourbons
- Switched to Allpress Coffee and We Are Tea
- Brought in a loyalty card
- Introduced a swanky new telephone reservation service (call 020 7228 3260 to give it a whirl)
We’ve got loads of plans for the coming year; look out for a new dinner menu, some exciting new wines, more cocktails, some amazing Bloody Mary’s, more funky interior design and we’ll also be working with our people to make things run smoother. As ever, we genuinely value your feedback, so do let us know what you like and don’t like (via Facebook or Twitter if you like).
Anyways, enough of that, it’s the weekend! Come and join us on St John’s Hill for brunch, dinner and drinks.
- Brunch kicks off from 9am – it’s the busiest (and we believe) the best in SW London, join us for big breakfasts, sexy eggs, top notch tea and coffee, Bloody Marys (we also do Virgin ones for those of you doing a dryathon this January) and smoothies.
- Dinner now starts at 5pm and on Fridays and Saturdays we keep our kitchen open later, meaning you can get a late bite, right up to 11pm.
- Don’t forget if you do join us for an early dinner then you can pick up some January value in the shape of a free glass of wine and 2 courses for £20.
- We don’t take bookings for weekend brunch as we get so busy, it’s the only way we can seat and serve more of you, but you can reserve a spot in the evening online or by calling us on 020 7228 3260.
- On Sunday nights we offer the Sunday Night Saver – get one of the Top 10 Burgers in London with chips for a flat tenner (or any of our other burgers and sandwiches for the same price).
- Finally, if you need to host a party (or small gathering) in 2013, then drop us a line, we’re super flexible and you can hire all or some of the Canteen – click here for more details.
Right, go have an awesome first weekend of the year and we hope to see you in the Canteen at some stage.
