Our Food

Our kitchen serves artisanal food inspired by our love of different styles and flavours – food for the soul at breakfast, brunch and lunch.

Our menus change frequently to reflect the seasons and the availability of local produce and the appetites of our customers. Whether you're visiting Bench or hiring one of our spaces, the food served here, like the Goldsmiths' Centre, is creative, universal and classic at the same time.

“The Goldsmiths’ Centre, in which this café is located, is now staging regular events and, as a result, this place is buzzing. The meal was A1 and the menu ‘simple’ but imaginative. A place for healthy eating – great salads!”
