The Bentink, commonly known as the Mac
is a very old place.
Virtually everything about the place seemed to be old with the exception of the gas fire
and the staff. Certainly it is a great building dating from the 1850's and it makes no pretence to being modern. It has a nice ceiling with central roses,
the dated wall paper is covered in old photos from the 19th century
and the carpets,
the newspaper here was three days old!, and even the tables looked ancient.
seem to be just about as old.
The food was robust. A 250 gm fillet steak must have been at least 50% more than promised.
