Had a 90th birthday bash there service was good and prices good, good selection of meals and drinks. Nice room upstairs with very good views especially when it's raining and windy. Parking a slight problem due to metered parking some issues on time parking over the weekend.

Had a coffee here the first time and the muffins were delicious. Coffee was good too and nice & hot. Our second visit 2 weeks later for lunch was just as good and they offered half size meals for my elderly mother which I thought should happen more often in other establishments. Well done Bethany's!!!

There were about 20 of us who visited Bethany's for dinner this week. The food was very nice and the outlook over the Square was very pretty. I can recommend this restaurant. Loved the lemon curd creme Brulee.

Came with a group of around 20, had the sirloin steak MR and it was amazing, the best meal I've had in a long time! Everything was bang on from the salad to the hollandaise and the mango lassi was yummy to. Steak cooked perfectly.
