Bensons Restaurant in Woodlands Park Hotel offers a more relaxed dining alternative to the ﬁne dining experience at The Oak Room. Kick back and relax in the contemporary restaurant and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Bensons is ﬂooded 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 pan-roasted corn-fed chicken breast, accompanied by Savoy cabbage, quinoa, carrots and thyme sauce. Steak-lovers are advised to try something from the grill. Chuck-eye and sirloin steaks are grilled to perfection and served with ﬁeld mushrooms, roasted 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 beefburgers through to open sandwiches and lighter bites. Desserts are creative and indulgent, and somewhat hard to resist. How does raspberry shortbread with clotted cream and raspberry sauce 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.
