  • In addition to a 26th May 2019 booking, I had previously used Bensham Hall on 19th March 2018, which is the reason I booked it again for 2019. Firstly, the staff are very helpful and go through the booking arrangements with you thoroughly. They communicate effeciently with you so you are always in the picture and I have found they will do their best to accommodate your needs. The Hall is a wonderful modern venue and has all the facilities you will need for a celebration/occassion. Your final table arrangements is limited only by your imagination and can be made to look quite spectacular as I did in 2018. If you are looking for a venue for a special occasion, I have no hesitation in recommending Bensham Hall. I certainly will be looking to use it again in the not too distant future. Definitely 5 stars

  • I organised a corporate event for staff and family members for raising awareness on Safeguarding the Vulnerable Adults. In conjunction with the local council and other business partners in the community, the objectives were met. I chose Bensham Hall again because of its location and facilities i.e., free parking on the side road, air conditioning, TV, wall screen for power point presentation, kitchen , chairs and table. What amazes me, is every time i go there, the hall is always clean . Keep up the good job " S.A.

  • This Hall is truly a 5 star, with 5 star customer service! Worth every penny! We had our event on the 31st May and all our guests were amazed with the venue. The toilets and kitchen are very modern and most importantly "CLEAN". The owner went above and beyond to make sure our day was special. We will definitely be using this hall for future events!

  • Superb facilities we held our wedding reception here and a fantastic time was had by all. We would highly recommend to anyone to hire Bensham Hall.

  • My brother wanted to book this hall for my niece's christening party. The owner was extremely rude and offensive wanting to ensure that if he does allow my brother the "opportunity" to hire the hall he "controls" his crowd when leaving. My brother decided to pay an extra £100 to have the party elsewhere. I would rather host a party at a bus stop then give that man my money. I've been to a party there before and the person who paid for the hall had the same complaint about the owner.

  • On the whole, hall was reasonable clean and spacious, however the person in charge is very stingy and not very pleasant to deal with.
