About Bench

Our values ‘Coffee, Craft, Community’ are part of everything we do. We aren’t just a high-street café in Clerkenwell. We are a social hub, bringing people together through great coffee and food.

Managed by Company of Cooks, Bench welcomes everyone – from out-of-town visitors to local office workers and the Hatton Garden jewellery community. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Farringdon station, our terrace is always buzzing with conversation and our cosy space is filled with people catching-up over coffee. 

We love creating unique memories and moments. We make our coffee and food with care, using fresh and seasonal ingredients from local UK suppliers. Our chefs constantly add new dishes alongside our signature classics. We surprise daily with delicious choices.

But it’s not just about food and coffee. We strive to give back to our community and planet. We introduce more plant-based dishes, source ethical suppliers, and reduce food and packaging waste. We are always looking for ways to be more sustainable. Through our partnership with the Goldsmiths’ Centre, every purchase supports jewellers and silversmiths in learning craft and business skills for successful creative careers.
