It appears that regular turnover of food ensures it is fresh and appetizing. Pensioners discounts on Tuesday and Thursday. Very friendly staff.

Bentley's Cafe reminds me of the cafes of my earlier years, it is a no nonsense and no frills cafe. The food is solidly and typically British for example the breakfast menu is typical a full English: a couple of rashers of bacon, two or three sausages, fried tomato, baked beans, mushrooms and fried bread. One nod to a non-typical... More

I've been back and forth for a decade now; the place is still performing beautifully! Some posher spots are squeezing the market now, so this place responds by just doing the greasy spoon that little bit better, and with pleasant service.

I was being talked about by staff, very unprofessional, service was appalling and tables dirty and sticky. It appears the boss who owns it turned a blind eye to what was going on around him. Food came it was service with an attitude like all is too much trouble. I will not be going there again ...........

Staff friendly but the place hasnt been updated for at least 8 years it looks a bit run down especially with all the competition in this area, they charge similar prices for drinks but the quality is very basic.

Visited this café many times when I moved to the area in late 2013. Very convenient for me while I was sorting out my flat. It was a great introduction to the community too, a community I'm very much a member of now. I popped in last week, the first time in a long while, for a quick sandwich and... More

Popped here for a cheap and cheerful breakfast as we had a busy day ahead. Walking through the door must have transported be back to 1985, because thats the last time I had seen a place or food that looked like this. Greasy spoon, emphasis on the grease, the cooked breakfast we both had was swimming in the grease to... More
