Get Festive at Ben’s Canteen

Food  / 

It’s (nearly) Christmas and therefore time to indulge! With the addition of their decadent Christmas burger and party menu, Ben’s Canteen beckons…

What to Expect

Neighbourhood hangout Ben’s Canteen is the alternative to your local pub – friendly, relaxed atmosphere and great food and drink. They specialise in brunch, great wines, and the kind of burgers you’ll go back for (again and again), and with Christmas around the corner they’ve introduced some exciting festive twists to the menu!

What to Eat

Top tip: come hungry to Ben’s. To start with, Ben’s Epic Scotch Egg is pretty epic (funny that). And how do you like your guacamole – chunky, smashed, mashed? With the DIY Guacamole with Tortilla Chips you get to decide (plus playing with the pestle and mortar is just good fun).

There is a wide range of burgers on the menu, from the aptly named Salad Dodger to the Korean Fried Chicken, but at this time of year it’s all about the Christmas Burger… with a sage and shallot buttermilk turkey breast, slow roasted honey and mustard ham hock, squashed stuffing ball, brie, cranberry sauce, butter brussel tops and garlic mayo, this is Christmas burger heaven on a plate!

And you can’t leave without trying the Doctor’s DIY Doughnuts – crispy on the outside and deliciously fluffy on the inside, these little doughnuts come with syringes of chocolate sauce, strawberry jam, and maple and vanilla custard for you to inject your filling of choice (again, we gained childish pleasure from playing with these). Plus it’s (practically) guilt free as 50p from each doughnut order goes to the Wandsworth Food Bank.

What to Drink

Wine fans will be well watered at Ben’s Canteen; they pride themselves on their interesting wine list. Otherwise, try one of their excellent cocktails, a gin and tonic (from Mare to Opihr) or something from their refreshing selection of vodka sodas.

Best for…

Sharing plates (especially the DIY dishes) with a big group of friends, lazy weekend brunches, or just plain and simple burger indulgence.

Don’t Miss

Bottomless bubbles and Christmas crackers! Ben’s are offering Christmas party packages including two hours of bottomless sparkling wine with either one or two courses, and of course, Christmas party crackers. Let the festivities commence…
