Bench is a distinguished restaurant with a simple and welcoming interior, and it always invites you on a journey that treats dining to an art form. Begin your experience with the divine, creamy whipped cod's roe, accompanied by radish crudites and deliciously sticky coronation chicken wings. Then, don’t forget to try out the pickled Cornish sardines, artfully tossed in lemon and fennel, or indulge in the briny pleasures of Carlingford oysters with mignonette and lovage.
Transition to the vibrant Isle of Wight tomatoes panzanella salad or enjoy the deep fried courgettes adorned with pitchfork cheddar béchamel and scallions. The smoked golden beetroot, complemented by goat’s curd, blackberry vinaigrette, and pine nuts, is a testament to Bench's commitment to innovative flavours. For the main course, enjoy the smoky flavours of Cotechino sausage with Umbrian lentils or opt for the baked chalk stream trout, perfectly paired with leeks and smoked cream. The culinary journey concludes with a selection of artisanal cheeses from Neal's Yard Dairy, showcasing the finest British dairy craftsmanship.
Cap off your fantastic dining experience with a series of decadent desserts — including a bullion dark chocolate ganache with Le Coste olive oil or British cherries accompanied by almond ice cream and frangipane. At Bench, each dish is a masterpiece, delicately crafted to redefine your perception of what fine dining is.
As part of Bench in Sheffield, there is Bench La Cave. A bakery by day and wine bar by night. All day long though, Bench La Cave is a bottle shop. So whenever you're fancying some delicious, perfectly cooked sourdough, and a great bottle of wine to pair with it, you know where to go.
