We were a group of five and had booked due to the government eat out scheme. We ordered two plates of paella and all the small plates between us. Service was prompt and safe and we had a lovely evening. Everything was delicious and we will definitely be returning!

Lovely way spend our 32nd wedding anniversary. Excellent service. Covid 19 steps were spot on. Limited menu - not enough choice.

One of the best meals we have ever had. Superb service, incredible food - great to see such a small menu meaning what they do they do really well - lovely wine list. The only reason I gave 4/5 for atmosphere was a noisy table of drunk people near to us, but that wasn't really the fault of the restaurant. Really 1st rate experience.

The food is always delicious at Joseph Benjamin. And the Organic white wine is just as delicious. Yesterday my friend and I shared the seafood paella and it was full of flavour and very enjoyable... I did wish for a little more seafood though The espresso coffee was also very good and I meant to ask for the name of the brand... I was a little bit disappointed in the pastel de nata as it tasted cold from the fridge rather than room temperature

So glad to have booked in for our belated anniversary meal, we enjoyed every minute and every mouthful. I am gluten free and it was so great to be given the same menu as my boyfriend with only a few small changes. We shared a bottle of the new house red and loved it, and the food was absolutely delicious. We can’t wait to come back!
