I go here all the time for both breakfast treats and an hour out with both my family and date nights with my wife. Never had a bad service and the food is always at a high standard. Will keep going there as long as its open which I hope will be for a very long time.

First time visiting a F&B and mum and I both decided to have the spaghetti carbonara with a side of garlic pizza bread. The creamy sauce was lovely an had a good flavour. The garlic bread was very tasty and we didn't have to wait long at all. For dessert I chose the chocolate honeycomb waffle which was very good... More

Love love LOVE the food and struggle to pull myself away from my favourite starter, the garlic mushrooms in a creamy sauce, phwoaaar. We normally time our visits to these... More

I went in a cold November, after a fun day of Biking. Thought I'd grab food before watching a film. I opted for 'Pulled Pork Potato Skins' and Spicy Meatball Calzone from the 'world famous' Frankies and Bennys. To call the PPPS disappointing would be an understatement, it had the tiniest amount of pork and came lukewarm (an thats being... More

We called in as we were in the area. Had two salads. My wife had the warm chicken salad - she is very rarely sick but within two hours of eating, it has caused her to be violently ill. Not a good experience. We will not be going back and if the sickness gets any worse, I will be contacting... More

I went here and had the set menu. Crab bruschetta and a pasta verde. Really nice. I was dining alone and was well looked after. I was surprised as the last F&B's I went to was awful! Worth a drop in for a chain restaurant.

We visited this restaurant for my daughters birthday, she is 30+, and our grandchildren, a party of 8 in total. It was half term, but still, It was full of little kids running a muck, food every where, music blasting away all 60's, that was all ok, but I found the food over priced, and not value for money.
