We took our daughter & friends here for her 11th Birthday lunch & they loved it! Food & service was great, didn't take long considering the place was packed due to Norwich City playing a home game! Without asking the staff put a candle in the birthday girls dessert & sang happy birthday, lots of other diners sang & clapped... More

I read mixed reviews (mainly bad) on this Frankie and Benny's and after receiving a £10 off voucher, we thought we'd give it a go. Mixed is a perfect way of describing it. We went on a Wednesday at half 1 and it was quite busy. We received a friendly welcome and were sat. It took a little while to... More

Came with my husband and 2 kids one evening for a quick bite before going to a film at the cinema. There was a good atmosphere with a couple of parties going on. Service was not very fast. Possibly because there were some larger groups eating. My salad had far too much dressing on it which was a shame. My... More

OK, it's the same wherever you go but the food was good and quick. What did stand out was the efficient service. Good for a lunchtime meal after shopping.

Saw it as we drove passed and decided to pop in 5.00pm on a Friday, completely empty!! Was asked where we would like to sit and chose window seat, then two more customers arrive and with everywhere else empty they were shown to table next to us!! Menu was difficult to read in the dim lighting. Drinks were ordered fairly... More

Went in lunch time on a week day, was quiet. Waitress was lovely and helpful. Had great lunch time deals on. The drinks are free refills, 3 course lunch for £11 is a bargain, many different options. Soup and skins for starters came out fast and were delicious, meatballs for main, a huge portion of pasta with 3 giant balls... More

Arranged to meet a friend for dinner after work and had an online voucher for Frankie and Benny's so that's where we went. Had very little space when we arrived so were sat at the last, dark table for 2. However, the Manager kindly moved us to a booth table that became vacant whilst we still perused the menus. The...

This chain of Italian restaurants has a history of a good standard of food & service.Even if the menu is a little old & could do with a bit of a face lift you know what you are going to get.A little bit pricey for some of the dishes but still a good place when you want a quick meal... More

Family of four, average American type fare, nothing special but ok. Speedy service.Would have been much better if the birthday songs at the table didn't happen every few minutes followed by Cliff Richard singing "congratulations"!!!
