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.

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

Always welcoming and always goes out of his way! Makes us feel at home! A large part of us becoming regulars at F and B at Jenkins Lane is due to Klinsman's hospitality! The food is great as well!

Been here a number of times and never get sick of it. Food is always good, service is good, sometimes takes a little longer to get your food but that's because it's busy. You can enjoy this restaurant before going to the cinema or just sit back enjoy the food and drink and listen to the wonderful oldie songs playing... More

Fast food but good food, good value, and the most exceptional all round service that I've experienced in a restaurant in a very long time. Many other places would be wise to give service like this. My dad said to our waiter, who I think may have been the manager, that he used to have a dish in there that... More

After the disaster that was big Moe's thank god for Frankie and bennies. They seated our group straight away, kept up with service considering we was a large group. Great value for money and we all enjoyed the meal

Great meal and very helpful staff. Prince was our server and he was lovely, Lisa the barmaid was also great and kept our drinks topped up, also Claudia the manager did everything she could to make sure we all had a great experience... Will definitely be going back!!!
