Was told when we were seated there was a quality guarantee on all food. Not entirely sure what this meant - when we finished the meal we told the waitress how poor we had... More

Always fairly busy when we've been there and the food is ok - typical Frankie & Benny fayre. Nothing to rave about but fine if that's what you like. The children are always very keen to go there.

We popped in after bowling for an early lunch. I ordered the pulled chicken sandwich and hubby had a cajun burger and we has a side of onion rings. We got there at 11.15 and it was starting to get busy after we arrived but by no means full. Our food took a while and we saw it sat on... More

Liked: the atmosphere, fast and friendly service, tasty pizzas, clean tables. Dislike: couldn't hear the music as the crowds were very loud and the restaurant is open plan.

Service wasn't up to much, the food was terrible, limp chips and overly fatty burger. All in all, not somewhere I'm planning on going back to EVER!

As I have eaten lunch here before I decided to go again with my daughter and new grandson, on arriving we were shown to a table straight away and given a menu. We didn't have to wait long before we were offered drinks or take our order, the drinks and food came quickly and was very hot and presentable, we... More
