Been plenty of times before. Always good. Main was a bit disappointing. But rest of tables meals were good. Waiter was excellent. Very busy . He was extremely courteous and attentive. Music was lowered on request. All in all a great evening.

We like going to F&B's once in a while before going to the cinema. Ok, it's not fine dining, but we always get a table without booking, the staff is friendly, the (comfort) food is always decent and we love to sing along to the loud 1950-60s music. I like the dough balls with garlic butter, and the Cajun chicken... More

Put in dark area. Place was empty. Waiter rude. Forgot our drinks. Burger looked good but tasted like sawdust. Vastly over priced. Like canteen fodder. We got charged for something we didn't order. This place could be so good! Management needs sorting plus kitchen. Never going back. Awful waste of money.

F&B's is a good venue for birthdays - I like the music and its alway lively. Some good staff - some dodgy ones - generally good food & good service - and less manic than Pizza Hut next door.

Good music if you exclude the occasional overdose of birthday celebrations. Service can be impacted by the popularity of the restaurant. However, food is good and a nice atmosphere.

We have been going to F&B's for as long as its been open. Always a friendly welcome, but its becoming expensive as a family night out (~£65 for 3 people just having a main and dessert off the main menu - quite a lot for glorified pizza and pasta). Atmosphere is OK as long as you get a booth, but... More

On our visit this evening, the place was busy, I ordered the salt and pepper scampi, my wife ordered the steak bake. The portion of scampi I had served to me was very small in size and quantity, and the jacket potato was cold. My wife's meal was dried out and burnt...we were offered a replacement for both but decided... More

Decided to eat here as it was close to the cinema. Food cold and greasy - Starter - Calamari - shrivelled up bits of squid covered in an over spiced coating. Tasted nothing like calamari. Main - Rack of ribs, French fries, small pot of coleslaw, corn on cob with side order of onion rings - all of it cold... More

We went here on a saturday night and was lucky we only had a 20min wait for a table, we were seated and asked did we want dough balls which we said yes too, an hour later we still hadn't had them then our waiter came over and apologized that we hadn't had them and because we had waited so... More
