Enjoy entertaining your visiting family and friends in stylish, shared spaces or in the privacy of your apartment. In this refined community of like-minded residents, you are invited to be social as little or often as you desire.

Living here at The Benson will be an engaging and rewarding experience, and it’s great to know that the gloriously appointed extensions of your home and a friendly companion will be there whenever you wish.

Club Ebsworth

The beautifully appointed Club Ebsworth, named after the first Parish priest of St Peter’s, boasts another charming fireplace to draw you in on chilly afternoons where you can settle with a book from the well-stocked library.

The sophisticated bar at Club Ebsworth invites conversation and contemplation over a drink or two with new company or old. Savour a champagne or sample fine local and imported wines selected from our generous cellar. Throughout the day, premium teas and coffees are available at the bar.


Adjacent to Club Ebsworth you will appreciate the wonderful spaciousness of the dining room, where restaurant quality cuisine is served by request on selected weekdays.

The dining room’s full length French doors face east, allowing glorious morning light to filter in, starting your day with a warm glow. The cosy courtyard terrace will entice you to dine alfresco, perhaps a barbecue on a balmy summer night or rug up with mulled wine in winter.
