Haven't been here for a while now I remember why. After ordering our food and waiting for the starter the manager bought over our dessert!!!! we told him we hadn't had our starter yet and I knew the visit was going to be one that I wouldn't forget. I asked for potato skins with chicken and sweet corn for starter... More

Came here today 4/7/2014. Ordered eggs benedict hollandaise sauce had separated too long under the heater in my opinion. Service was very poor. Waiting for drinks, replacement breakfast. Not a smile from any staff. Everything seemed to much even getting the bill. Won't be back.

On Sunday 29th June children and staff from the Pauline Quirke Academy, Wickford had a screening of our films at the nearby Empire Cinema followed by an awards ceremony breakfast at Frankie & Benny's. There were over 50 of us in the mezzanine area with students ageing from 18 down to just 4 years of age. The staff serving us-... More

And cinnamon waffle! The staff were lovely and had us laughing and couldnt do more for us if they tried! my son was... More

Despite living in Basildon for 11 years, had never tried this restaurant at Bas Vegas as had a disappointing visit to F&B in Beckton. We booked a table for 8pm tonight ( Friday)and the place was rammed. Our table was not ready so we grabbed a drink at the bar but waited no longer than 5 mins. Our waiter was... More

Visited for lunch and they accommodated us with a baby and pushchair at the back of the restaurant. Restaurant was pretty stuffy and hot. Fans on the ceiling were not switched on. Ordered from the lunch menu. Meatball starter was okay. Calzone pizza was pretty greasy and salty. Burger was dry and tasteless; left it and just ate the chips.... More

Making my 20month laugh whenever they walked past, getting... More

Went for Father's Day breakfast. We waited 45 minutes before our waiter came and asked if we wanted some drinks. We ordered food at the same time as we thought we might have to wait another half hour before he came back. The orange juice was warm. When the food was served, the side orders of beans, hash brown and... More
