Lunch!

I have eaten at this F+B Several times, maybe 10?? Over the past 4years or so. It is above average, worth a visit if going to the nearby Showcase Cinema. Lunch deals are the best 2 course and 3 course specials from the set lunch menu.

Since getting a new manager recently, the place has really improved. Much better service and atmosphere - is now a really pleasant place to go for a tasty meal.

We had to choose between Moes Dinner or this venue. We liked the look inside, a bit more cosier so went in. On the plus side our Waiter was great with regard to attitude, very friendly and cheerful. However, the portions were small for the price you pay. Coleslaw in a tiny pot. Half a scoop of ice-cream in a... More

We were seated and asked to move. The table we got moved to was not that clean and the floor had a lot of rubbish on it. I had the pasta chorizo and chicken. For £10.95 there was a lot of pasta and not much of the other. My other half had a pizza which the base wasn't fully cooked... More

It's a chain so the food tends to be consistent and to be fair consistently good. However this particular restaurant needs to change management, staff training on customer service or something equally significant I visited mid afternoon on Saturday. There seemed to be plenty of staff and despite when it was, only 7 tables were occupied so they weren't over... More

The kids love their pizzas & doughballs so it's a place we frequent. There hasn't been anything new on the menu to excite the adults though so it's always been - kids eat & we finish their leftovers!

We've been to F & B's with the family several times, without a problem, the food is always very good. This visit was for my wife's birthday breakfast, There wasn't many in there, so the service was very quick. We both had breakfast with unlimited tea/coffee, the bill came to £17. We would go again for a special occasion.

We’ve been to Frankie & Benny’s in Jenkins Lane, Barking on several occasions in the past but we just gave up altogether due to the slow and unprofessional service. After nearly a decade, my family and I decided to give Frankie & Benny’s another chance but this time we just went for desserts. They still haven’t changed! We arrived at... More
