Benson’s Restaurant at Woodlands Park Hotel offers a more relaxed dining alternative to their fi ne dining experience. Kick back and relax in the contemporary restaurant and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Benson’s is fl ooded with light and the cheerful, efficient staff will make sure that you’re well looked after from the minute you arrive.
Menus are carefully considered to include healthy dishes alongside some hearty favourites, and there’s a dedicated children’s menu for younger visitors. Starters are light and hint at the skilled flavour pairings that the kitchen is renowned for. You might try dishes such as salt and pepper squid with saffron aioli or a selection of Beal’s Farm’s award-winning charcuterie. Meat-lovers are advised to choose something from the grill such as the dry-aged sirloin steak, which is grilled to perfection and served with field mushrooms roasted vine cherry tomatoes, watercress and Béarnaise sauce. Fresh fish of the day always graces the menu and there are plenty of other options to cover all preferences, from gourmet beefburgers through to open sandwiches, fresh salads and seasonal mains. Desserts are creative and indulgent, and somewhat hard to resist. How does homemade chocolate tart with orange ice cream sound?
Woodlands Park Hotel has plenty of outside space for roaming around and you can dine al fresco when the weather is fine. There’s also free parking, which is something of a rarity in Cobham.
