2 for 1 at Ben's Canteen

Ben's Canteen in London's happening St John's Hill is a smart eatery and gathering place inspired by travel and discovery.

The International theme is there from the first drink at the bar, say a beer from Nairobi or Argentina or a spicy red from Mexico. It continues with the menu, a selection of contemporary dishes from 6 Continents. The International deli boards let you choose a wide range of dishes to share over drinks or enjoy the a la carte or specials selection.

This relaxed bar and restaurant with an eclectic mix of furniture attracts a smart civilised crowd who no doubt want to keep it to themselves.

Important Information

Please note: tastecard members must advance telephone book. The A la carte menu is not availiable before 5pm

  • "Despite us taking over an hour to order and getting tipsy on the wonderful 241 cocktails - the waiters were patient, friendly and extremely accommodating! The food is delivered in generous portions and is delicious. I would highly recommend the Calamari (Noodle) Salad and any of the burger boards. The mussels were unfortunately unavailable due to the situation in Scotland but I'll definitely be back to try them. 5* evening. Pat   "

  • "We went on Saturday - Not only can you use your tastecard on Saturday but you can also take advantage of the 2 for 1 drinks too. The Staff were amazing for the moment we got there - friendly, funny, knowledgeable and looked after us while we waited for our friends to arrive. We ordered 2 cocktails (2 for 1) and also a Houmous/pitta starter. Both were superb! As for the meal, well I don’t know where to start - If I could sum it up in one word I would but it was amazing - I had the BBQ Brazilian chicken which was again amazing and enormous and my girlfriend had the Mussels (Which she said were the best mussels she has ever had). Service was quick, efficient and yet we felt we had the undivided attention of our hosts all night despite the place being rather full. I don’t want to recommend this place as I know the next time I go I won’t be able to get a seat as it will constantly be fully booked with all the amazing reviews. IT’S JUST THAT GOOD!!!!!!
