We arrived in a party of 9, we believe that 10 and above incur an automatic service charge (we did not do this on purpose). We asked to have a separate bill for My husband and daughter and myself and this was a big deal and was not liked. I’m sorry but in large groups we always do this so... More

We have been coming here for years and it seems to be going downhill. If they are very busy be prepared to wait for a table up to 45mins (when they say 30mins and no apology). They also have piles of dirty glasses piled up because they cannot keep on top of them so they put your drink in another... More

Didn't fancy going here before the cinema as been other Frankie and Bennies and was put off. The staff were attentive and polite. Music was good. Atmosphere great! I ordered the tomato garlic bread to start and it looked like a proper home made pizza garlic bread, delicious! Main was the new chicken pitta with a Louisiana sauce, chips, corn... More

We were a large party booked last week for a birthday. The food was generally pretty poor. One steak ordered to be cooked well done, it came back very rare. The diner sent it back to the chef. It was then brought back as the same steak reheated. Burgers very dry and overpowered with greasy relishes. Most of the food... More

Had lunch out on daughters 6th birthday. Bruchetta, chilli hot dog and fries, waffle and ice cream. We had a pleasant lunch out with 3 courses. Kids enjoyed the place and having the birthday music, cake and candles.

The food was not up to their normal standard . I have visited the ones in Swansea and Shrewsbury but the cooks in the Blackpool need re training. So disappointed .

We visited a little over a year ago and wrote a review about how excellent this restaurant was. Well unfortunately they let themselves down this time round. We had a night booked at the Travelodge and were quite excited to head to F&B's as we had an excellent all round experience last time. We were seated next to the door... More

Took two hours to get our meal. Understaffed and some staff were rude about their colleagues in front of me and my family. The desserts sat for so long before the waitress picked then up to bring them to the kids that all of the ice cream had melted. As other people have stated the drinks are overpriced and could...

I had something from the lunchtime menu with work colleagues........£9.50 for a burger and Pepsi. This is a meal deal although for Blackpool this is expensive. All paid individually and some left early. However the remaining few were then advised there was a 10 percent service charge and had to pay £10 extra to leave. Needless to say we will... More
