Having had a couple of bad experiences with this restaurant in the past I decided to give the breakfast a go (at the request of my kids). To be fair, the service was reasonably quick and the quality of the food was okay. I am very unlikely to become a regular dinner guest there after the previous bad experiences but... More

I go here all the time for both breakfast treats and an hour out with both my family and date nights with my wife. Never had a bad service and the food is always at a high standard. Will keep going there as long as its open which I hope will be for a very long time.

First time visiting a F&B and mum and I both decided to have the spaghetti carbonara with a side of garlic pizza bread. The creamy sauce was lovely an had a good flavour. The garlic bread was very tasty and we didn't have to wait long at all. For dessert I chose the chocolate honeycomb waffle which was very good... More

Love love LOVE the food and struggle to pull myself away from my favourite starter, the garlic mushrooms in a creamy sauce, phwoaaar. We normally time our visits to these... More

I went in a cold November, after a fun day of Biking. Thought I'd grab food before watching a film. I opted for 'Pulled Pork Potato Skins' and Spicy Meatball Calzone from the 'world famous' Frankies and Bennys. To call the PPPS disappointing would be an understatement, it had the tiniest amount of pork and came lukewarm (an thats being... More
