Ladies late lunch

Went here for the first time for a late lunch. Upon arriving the place was extremely busy so we were asked to wait in the adjacent bar area and given a handheld device that would let us know when a table would be ready. We only had a 10 minute wait which we were delighted with. The seating is... read more

Small portions which weren't worth the money, however, when we had them they were nice enough. Chips were nice and crispy, burgers were juicy, but F&B shouldn't market themselves as Italian, what Italians serve burgers and ribs!?

If you are looking for a good nights feed, then this is the place to go. They have specials every now and again. The night we went, the kids eat free off the main menu. Came out feeling like a beached whale.

Love this F&Bs, always full of friendly staff. Food is tasty too and always served in a timely manner. I love the full desert and starter menu, but I do wish there were a few more vegaterian options. My non veggie friends love the meat dishes too!

Have eaten in this branch of F&B's several times and am always satisfied. On this particular visit I ordered off the specials menu and had the BBQ garlic bread to start- made from a pizza base it was enormous, tasty and enough for 2 of us to share! I had the New Yorker burger which was lovely, and shared the... More

One of the members of staff had cold, and was consistently sneezing into his hands. He then touched plates and credit cards. We were appalled to note the rubbish on the kitchen floor, staff were walking over it, where it had been dropped. Slow service and brought the wrong food! Will not return!

We have never really had a bad experience in any Frankie and Benny's restaurant and we've been to a few different locations. Great selection on the menu and plenty of deals if you arrive early. The staff are always very friendly and helpful.

In fact we didnt... More

Came here on the 2nd of January after work for lunch with friends, and it was just what i needed. Although it was busy the staff handled it very well, had to wait a few moments to be seated but that was understandable. We were then called and seated up stairs. The waiter was so pleasant and friendly! The lunch... More
