Went to here as we were looking for somewhere quick and easy to eat on Monday night. Didn't realise, but Monday means 25% off food apparently which was a bonus! Had a good meal, with great portions, and found it thoroughly satisfying. I was expecting a below par chain restaurant and found it to be enjoyable. It was made better... More

We ate here for dinner and found the staff to be very friendly and the food was great. The menu had so many choices and having never been to a Frankie & Bennys before it took us a while to decide what to have with the selection on offer! There was also a Special's Menu, £9.95 for a main course... More

Have been here several times before and I am usually disappointed as the service is so slow. However, today (Sunday) it was completely different! It was quiet, we didn't prebook and there was no queue and we were seated straight away. We ordered and our food and drinks appeared in no time at all. The kids meal for bigger appetites... More

I would advise... More

We decided to eat here one evening after doing some shopping in McArthur Glen. We were thinking to go to the Harvester but as we had ate many times in other Frankie and Bennys we would try this one. It was quite busy but they had plenty of staff working there, so thats no excuse for the service we received.... More

We've eaten at this food outlet numerous times and each time we've had nothing but awful service, tonight was no different. We can't complain about the food and have never had a bad meal, but the staff really need to have a good look at their customer services. Upon being seated we were asked if we wanted drinks & garlic... More

We previously ate at the same chain but different venue. We were on a shopping trip at MacArthur Glen retail outlet and the smell of food wafted over us enticing us in. We were greeted and seated efficiently and after ordering only had to wait about twenty mins which was fine considering it was a busy lunchtime for them. The... More
