Visited after going out to the cinema and took up the early offer of 2 courses. Did order a garlic bread for a starter which was just a pizza base with garlic butter but the main meals where better. Service was good, sweets where the best part of the visit. Would return just on the off chance. Thank you

We visited Frankie & Benny's Norwich after a full day's shopping. We were staying in a hotel locally, and wanted something decent to eat after a busy day. When we walked in, the friendly staff informed us that there would be a 10 minute wait for a table (we hadn't pre-booked), but invited us to the bar area for our... More

With the mother in law being gluten free, we're a little restricted on places to eat in Norwich and always looking for new places. On Frankie and bennys website they offered a wide range and a gluten free menu which is why we picked it. When we got there the staff were marvellous. Seriously busy (it was a wet bank... More

I had a Cajun chicken calzone which I loved and will definitely have again!! However, me and my boyfriend were expecting the carbonara to have a creamy sauce and this was not the case! Just pasta and the meat with no sauce! The student discount is fab though and persuades me to come back again.

Food was really disappointing. My son sent the milkshake back (he loves milkshakes) saying it didn't taste right. My sirloin steak was a very cheap cut of something beef, but it certainly wasn't sirloin, very chewy, thin, and bad. The baked potato was water logged and had been sat around somewhere too long. The garlic bread was a thin crust... More

A warm welcome on arrival form the front of house / manager. We had a 15 minute wait for a table (early evening dinner time service) but this was helped by the electronic fob that alerts you when your table is ready - so you can go to the bar and have a drink while waiting. Food service was a... More

Met my son there for our weekly lunch meet up. Quite quiet when we arrived, plenty of empty tables. We were given a menu and ordered from the lunchtime menu, both having hotdogs. We ordered our drinks and food at the same time, our drinks took about 5 minutes. Nearly 40 minutes later, at 13.12, our food finally appeared, but... More
