Square Meal Review of Ben's Canteen Battersea ?

Ben’s Canteen serves fine beers, wines and eclectic street food to the chattering classes who ping-pong between this increasingly interesting Wandsworth enclave and nearby Northcote Road. A relaxed, postmodern woody interior with retro styling and alfresco tables sets the scene for child-friendly breakfasts (served all day), dinner and everything in between. Order brunch classics (with bloody Marys), flatbreads and ‘big juicy burgers’ or dip into the list of ‘canteen specials’ (BBQ chicken wings, Asian-style pork broth, mac ‘n’ cheese Scotch eggs, ‘pimped-up’ pork nachos etc). Bigger plates might feature, say, grilled bream with courgette, carrot and noodle salad, while puds could bring orange and almond tart. There’s also plenty for fans of cappuccino and cake. Meanwhile, drinks run from mainstream cocktails (old fashioned, sloe spritz, pear and cinnamon Bellini) to beers from Meantime and other craft brewers at tolerable prices.

    S.W. Foodie :: Ben's Canteen

    So, after a few years of popping up and down St John's Hill to visit friends/family, we finally made it to Ben's Canteen. This neighbourhood hang out always has a long snake like queue forming for brunch and happy customers stuffing faces with delectable breakfast goodies. On Sunday we met with three of Mr D's university friends and headed down for 11am to be seated straight away - perfect! once seated however the queue was beginning to form so we consider ourselves lucky...

    TWO LOVES LONDON :: REVIEW: Ben's Canteen

    Last weekend my boyfriend Patrick & I decided to sample the delights of Ben's Canteen on St John's Hill, London. Advertised as the place on the hill, Ben's Canteen serves brunch, dinner & drinks 7 days a week. We opted for brunch having heard that it's seriously yummy. After 5pm they serve small plates & juicy burgers which from the website also look pretty epic. Ben's Canteen is just a short walk from Clapham Junction station. I went for good ol' Eggs Royale with a side of smashed avocado. Patrick went for the Big Ben which is your classic English breakfast. Sadly he started nomming before I could get a photo (tut)! We also got some skin on chips and enjoyed squirting ketchup on them with a novelty tomato sauce bottle...

    Burgers And Bruce :: Ben

    Since starting Burgers and Bruce a few months back I have become quite aware that most of the burgers on here are of a pretty high standard. It's not because I've only eaten bad burgers - the thing is, for me, bad burger reviews are SO much harder to write up because I just don't have that excitement behind it. Difficult as it may be, I feel I should post about the average burgers, even if it's a short "god this burger really did not do it for me"...
