Pre cinema meal

We go here quite a bit as its so close to cineworld, only ever had to wait for a table once which wasn't too long. food while quite expensive is nice and doesn't take too long to come out. Cant go in there without hearing there annoying birthday music but never mind.

I've had many F&B's over time & I had reay started to go off it, but I must say lunch in Bury was lovely. It was busy so we had to wait for a table but it meant there was a good atmosphere and service was still great. Our waitress was lovely & friendly, food was fresh but brought out... More

We love going here, the place really is great if you have children, you never have to wait too long for the food to arrive and the kids are given a colouring pack while you wait. The staff are always so friendly- not so much the manager though! We had a lovely American girl serve us on our recent trip... More

Me and my partner decided that we would have a 'good ol' Frankie and Benny's' for dinner tonight! We went in and it was busy so were more than happy to sit at the bar and wait with our little vibrating box for our table! We were told there would be a 30minute wait, whilst we were waiting more people... More

Took my 4 Grandsons here for a meal after the theatre. There were 11 of us and we were well looked after. Kids were kept occupied and food was 'okay'. Nothing fantastic, but that's Frankie and Bennys for you. You cannot fault the service.

We came with children and friends and were squashed onto a tiny table as they didn't seem willing to clear a larger one. The food was truly awful. I have eaten better carbonara as a ready meal for penny's at Tesco. Very expensive for what is was. And the staff tried to rush us off when we had finished our... More

My husband and I have been here for breakfast a few times and have enjoyed it every time. I actually prefer their breakfast menu to their main menu. I have tried both the "big breakfast" (actually not that big, a nice portion size!), which is streaky bacon, 2 eggs, beans, sausage, mushroom, tomato and crispy herb potatoes - has never... More

Tempted by a 20% off voucher we gave F&B a try for dinner after the cinema and were quite surprised at how good it was. Our server, Matt, was friendly, fast and efficient, making us feel most welcome, and the food was piping hot and cooked to perfection. We started with a portion of hot wings, which were meaty and...

Having not booked on a Saturday night we were fine with having a drink at the bar first (Tip bottled Budweiser is better than tap) after purchasing our 3 beers and J20 we were seated within 20 minuets.

This Frankie and Bennys is much like every other Frankie and Bennys. The service was fine. I had a pasta dish. I had to wait for ten minutes before I could eat it, as it was so hot! I like my food hot, but this was too much. The desserts are very expensive for what you get.
