Should you be just passing or decide to pop in on the spur of the moment, we always keep some tables unreserved to cater for you. The à la carte menu runs alongside our Christmas menu, so if you fancy a step away from the traditional, why not pizza and torte di formaggio or risotto and affogato?
And, contrary to our normal booking policy, we are taking bookings for Boxing Day for parties of any size.
Breakfast at Benny's
We offer breakfast at Café Bencotto seven days a week, from 9.30am 'til noon (10am 'til noon Sundays). Choose from a selection of baked to order, breakfast style focaccia, a stack of delicious buttermilk pancakes, tostada catalana or huevos estrellados .
Wash down with a freshly squeezed o.j. (or treat yourself to a glass of mimosa) and a barista made coffee. With our free wifi, £1.25 coffee refills and freshly made food - how better to start the day. See Breakfast menu
Our full vegan menu includes a delicious platter, pizza with your choice of topping, pastas and more. Don't forget to save room for dessert. We have vegan wine and beer to enjoy with it too!

If you would like to book for a party of 15 people or more, we do request that your meals are pre-ordered enabling our chefs to prepare your food quickly and efficiently, and our waiting staff to serve you as a group.

**OFFER** Beer by the Jug
2 pint jug of Birra Moretti or Adnams Mosaic for £9, anytime.
**OFFER** £1.25 Coffee Refills
You can have a second cup of any of our coffees for just £1.25 per refill, which means you can linger longer, so you might want to check out our range of cakes and pastries in the deli counter.
The Imposter Pizza
For a bit of fun we have added "The Imposter Pizza" to our repertoire. These pizzas are in no way authentic and they won't be found on our menu but - we think you might enjoy some of them. There will usually be an Imposter Pizza on the specials board such as :
The Peking - hoisin sauce with shredded duck, finished with spring onion and cucumber and served with a pot of hoisin.
The Peloponnese - feta, artichoke, kalamata olives, onion, rosemary and golden raisins, served bianca, with a pot of tzatziki.
La Mancha - Manchego cheese, roasted red pepper, garlic and mushrooms.
Our popular gin menu has been updated and includes some refreshing and exciting varieties. Choose from the Williams Chase Pink Grapefruit (it really does taste of grapefruit), Tarquin's Cornish (made with homegrown Devon violets !) or the Pinkster (distilled fresh raspberries - already a favourite) along with several others. Paired with Fever-Tree tonic, which now includes the elderflower option, you have the perfect tipple.

Roast Chicken on Sundays
We offer Mediterranean style roast chicken every Sunday. That's half a marinated chicken served on top of roasted Mediterranean vegetables and potatoes. Each week we will offer two different flavours such as lemon and garlic; piri piri; pesto and sun-dried tomato or preserved lemon and black pepper. The full menu will also be available as always.
