The Dining Experience
A Delicious & Extensive Menu
At The Benett Arms in Semley, our delicious and extensive menu has something for everyone. Whether you are after a light meal, a quick sandwich or a scrumptious three-course feast, we have something to tickle your taste buds. All of our food is cooked to order using fresh local ingredients wherever possible.
Food is served seven days a week from both the main and light menus 12-2pm and 7-9pm with a traditional roast 12-2pm on Sundays. We do not serve food on Sunday evenings. We have a limited seating capacity so it is best to book especially on Friday nights and Sunday lunchtimes.
We also have a seasonal specials board which changes on a weekly basis so pop in to see our full range.
Children are very welcome at The Benett Arms and we have a special children’s menu available or we can offer any of the meals on the main menu in smaller sizes.
