Standard chain quality

Standard chain restaurant quality. Service always pretty good, sometimes a bit hectic. Never usually have a reason to complain

Look at the other reviews: yes, it will take you 25 minutes to get a drink and an hour to get your very ordinary food. We had two kids with us (4 and 6) who showed exemplary patience, but will never want to go there again. Funnily enough, I had said that my previous impression of the place was that... More

Decided to try Frankie & Benny's for the first time tonight. As soon as we got there we had to wait a few minutes to be seen and shown to a table bearing in mind it was quiet apart from one party of children. After being shown to our table we decided to go for a meatball starter which just... More

My partner and I visited the restaurant for a spot of Sunday lunch. This is the first time I've ever been to this restaurant in Braintree and sadly it will be my last! The restaurant was only half full so we were feeling pretty chuffed that we'd dodged the expected lunch time madness! However, after only ordering a main course... More

Meal was well cooked, made in good time and tasted good. The venue is not so nice, on the edge of an industrial estate. We visited after a trip to Freeport shopping village. Greeter at the restaurant was friendly and we did not have to wait long to be seated. Annoys me when you ask for a cola and they... More
