The Redlands First Craft Beer Bar

Family Orientated Boutique Bar

Four best mates, locals from the Redlands, have brewed up something special to inject new life and culture into Cleveland. The crew behind The Bench, Cleveland’s newest watering hole, have established the first craft beer bar in the Redlands.

‘We believe in a drinking culture that is relaxed, controlled, respectable and appreciated. Our aim is to completely steer away from the current hostile situations that are brought on by binge drinking and disrespectful behaviour. We wanted to create a boutique style, community orientated bar where all are welcome.’

Imagine walking into an old brick venue with steel beams overhead and being welcomed by your first name, given a selection of amazing flavours currently available off tap or given the option to hand pick your bottle of craft beer, cider or fine wine. This is the ambience and experience The Bench can offer. Collaborating closely with the surrounding restaurateurs allows for The Bench to be a BYO venue for food. You’ll never be short of choices here! A knowledgeable team of beer connoisseurs behind the bar are there to help you every step of the way.

Choice is what it’s all about here at The Bench. Whether you’re thirsty for draught beer, something bottled, some fine spirits or delicious wine, we have it. Don’t worry about going hungry, either. We’ve partnered with local restaurateurs to create a tasty BYO venue for food. You’ll leave well-fed and well-watered.

So what are you waiting for? Make this weekend the time you try out The Bench. We’re open Wednesday – Sunday and we’re happy to accept bookings if you’d like to hold a private party. Stop by this weekend to see what’s on! If you’re looking for the best craft brews, wine and entertainment in the Redlands, look no further.
