I've eaten at other branches of Frankie and Benny's and enjoyed the experience - the Norwich branch is particularly good if you're in that area - but the Yeovil branch just can't seem to get it right. I have visited it occasionally over the years, hoping it will improve, but I have finally given up. 1. Poor service - you'll... More

Staff tried to be helpful however the quality of the food together with the portions failed to impress. The children in our party seemed to be oblivious of the quality of the food but the adults were not impressed.

After being invited for a friends birthday breakfast here, I was a little dubious having had a very bad experience at the establishment before. I didn't want to let my friend down, so I reluctantly went along. Well, I wasn't surprised when everything was as I expected, awful! When the order came out it was all wrong, the order hadn't...

We just went here prior to going to the cinema hoping that things had improved since our last visit. It wasn’t particularly busy so there should be no excuses for poor performance. I ordered a Calzone which was cold in the middle. It appeared that it was ‘manufactured’ from pre-cooked meat, grated cheese and vegetables straight from the fridge which... More

Over several visits we have found the quality of the food and service to be very unpredictable - we are now quite reluctant to go back.

Location opposite the cinema is the best thing about this place. Ordered salmon fishcakes with a jacket potato - potato looked like it had been microwaved, the fishcakes were deep fried, and obviously out of a packet, with barely a trace of salmon - if the menu hadn't told me there was salmon in them, I wouldn't have guessed. The... More

I have been to Frankie & Benny's probably a couple of times a year, each year since it opened, and each experience varies! The last time was awful, so I wrote a review, however, last night, although the staff need some training (!), the food was better. We booked a table as were going to the cinema afterwards. As soon...

Took family for evening meal on Saturday night. Service from staff was friendly and efficient. Food was good and enjoyed by family. Only gripe is that we had to wait for a table (not a problem as was busy) so got a drink from the bar which we had to pay separately for which was a little bit annoying but... More

It is difficult to describe in a few words just how terrible our experience was. On arrival we were ignored for a long time and then shown to a table where to bench seat was ripped. Two of us both ordered meals with jacket potato but, after a long wait, they both arrive with chips. We complained and after another... More

I can't believe I allowed myself to be talked into giving this horrible place another chance after my last experience here. Maybe it could have changed, but alas not a chance! The service is trumped only by the food in a quality race to the bottom. I don't understand how it stays in business, it's not as if it is... More
