American/Italian style food

We ate at F&B 9th Nov at around 5pm. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table. Menu choice was good, but on opting for their classic lasagne, was told that it was unavailable. Our food arrived fairly quickly and was good, but was disappointed with our extra side order of mixed vegetables which... read more

The restaurant is in a good location with easy parking. Inside the atmosphere was relaxing, with the staff very attentive and courteous. We had the lunchtime menu which was great value, 3 courses for just over a tenner each; also you got free coke refills. So if you're looking for a top fill up at a reasonable price, then you...

The food was lovely, well presented and piping hot when it came to the table. The staff made the party an enjoyable experience and we look forward... More

Arrived and told table would take 15 minutes, taken to bar for a drink and had to wait 10 mins before being served. Thirty five minutes before being taken to table. Meantime a number of people came and left as they were kept waiting while tables were empty. Lots of people complaining about service. In my opinion not enough staff... More
