This was £59.99 a couple of weeks ago, purchased mine when it came down in price last week. Gave it a couple of coats of Ronseal One Coat Fence & Shed Preserver, and assembled it this morning in a couple of hours.
Picture certainly doesn't do it justice, and although it's not hardwood it's a damn good price for something that is strong and sturdy and will last for years to come as long as it's treated annually.
The reviews are very good, some say that the holes are miss-aligned, but if you don't tighten the frame bolts till the end, it all fits perfectly. The bolts do need to pulled through by tightening the nut, and then undoing them to put the washers on, which is an easy enough job.
And as recommended on a few reviews, an electric screwdriver does help.

Here's the blurd from the website -

•Natural pine A type picnic bench id ideal for variety of outdoor applications (BBQ, picnic, garden party etc).
•Made from FSC certified pine wood, metal fixing bolts, screws and nuts.
•This product was made just from kiln dried, planed wood (requires treatment).

•The coating once made should be regularly maintained from moisture then the furniture continues to look it's best.

Forgot to say that if you're buying this, it comes in 2 very heavy, long boxes. Our store doesn't have a car park, thus the Mrs waited outside with them whilst i bought the car around and parked on double yellows just to quickly load them.

I'm very impressed with it. I waited until it was assembled before posting on here in case it turned out to be rubbish.
The thickness of the slats are better than those of deck boards i've used in the past, aprox 50mm.

The bottom white cross is his house, the top one is mine, but I can't see the sea as there is a house in the way.
