SquareMeal Review of Ben's Canteen Clapham Junction


The work of a former employee of Vice magazine, the Ben’s Canteen mini-chain more or less had a mandate to be cool from the word go – but it also manages to be a laid-back, welcoming hangout whose Aussie vibe and expansive menu fit the bill for every time of day, from breakfast to one-for-the-road cocktails. Brunch is a strong point, with a trio of celebrated burgers (try the buttermilk chicken version) competing in the calorie stakes with the likes of pulled pork and poached eggs slathered with hollandaise sauce, plus Down Under drinks that range from a tongue-in-cheek glass of ice-cold Berocca, to rum-heavy iced coffee. The over-indulgence continues into lunch and dinner via ‘nduja-studded mac ‘n’ cheese, peanut butter-laced milkshakes and yet more burgers – all of which come with pairing suggestions from the dynamic global wine list. The dining rooms have a folksy, cosy feel, with lights strung around the ceiling and patchily whitewashed walls and furniture. Don’t be surprised to arrive for brunch and find yourself still there, soaking up the atmosphere, come bedtime.

Been twice. Once was faultless, once was abysmal. The food on both occasions was excellent. However, on the second visit we waited 50 minutes for starters to come out, and another hour for the mains. What mad me really angry was that tables that were seated half an hour after us were receiving their food before we were, the waiting staff were of no use when explaining why this was happening, just apologising that they were ‘busy’. Great potential here, and they do some awesome pop-ups like with Ben Spalding next week, but it is quite expensive for what it is (£4.50 for a beer), especially if you're sat in the corner being ignored for a couple of hours.
