Amazing place !
Great atmosphere, great service, great selection of drinks and most of all, great food! Me and my partner had a lovely evening here on a Saturday night for our anniversary. Highly recommend!
We love the way the menu changes throughout the year, it makes it for an interesting visit, and we think the experience improves every time. The quality and presentation of the food is exceptional.
It was an enjoyable evening. I just found the staff a little unfriendly
There are two male serving staff that are always excellent and the food is always delicious
Absolutely superb. David who served us all evening was really knowledgeable and excellent we could not fault it. We are going back with friends in two weeks and also booked for the New Years eve party.
Superb meal, my dad said “one of the best he has ever had” Thank you for a lovely lunch and afternoon
Fabulous food & service, our south African waiter was lovely, we've been quite a few times now & never been disappointed!
Really lovely evening, food delicious and the wine selection is fabulous.l We enjoyed it so much we are going to book our Christmas social in December to come back.
Absolutely lovely place. Staff couldn’t do enough. I will thoroughly recommend you to anyone. Xx
Had another lovely meal/evening at The Kent Tapas Company. Food was as scrumptious as always. Looking forward to our next meal up there.
Excellent service and food - great evening at a great restaurant
Great food, cocktails & service.
Lovely food, nice staff and not bad price!
Food was nice but service was rather slow and overall it’s fairly pricey.
Faultless service, drinks and food the best atmosphere around...highly recommend!!!
Absolutely brilliant, had 24 of us for lunch and service and food were just impeccable. I can not rate this venue highly enough.
Brought my father here this time...he loved it !! Thank you.
Brilliant service quick and very friendly 😀
This is first time we been for the roast and as always it was fantastic. The roast was very nice and staff as friendly as ever.
Most of the food was lovely my friends thought the chicken breast dish was too peppery and couldn't eat it and also the pork belly was like mush.They advised the waiter and he immediately took it off the bill for them.The service was great. Would definitely come back.
Beautiful food and cocktails can't wait to go back
Service exceptional, cocktails fantastic. However generally I felt the price was a little expensive.
Every bite is a delight. The taste and quality is unsurpassed in my experience.
We had a lovely meal for our anniversary at The Bench and we would recommend anyone to book. We were going thinking that, as it was Tapas, the portions wouldn’t be that big, but we were really pleasantly surprised at how much food you got for your money. We were so full after! We were so full that we couldn’t manage a dessert, however after our meal the waiter brought out an amazing dessert board which read “Anniversary” in white chocolate with a yummy chocolate moose and strawberries included - and they had done it for us as a complimentary gift! We couldn’t have been happier with our meal - delicious food, lovely setting and amazing service. We will definitely be coming back soon and bringing our friends. Couldn’t recommend more!
