The instantly recognisable red neon sign and warm inviting interior will ease you into the Frankie & Benny's experience before you can take your coat off! In typical stateside fashion, great service at Frankie & Benny's is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble for our obliging and friendly staff. So loosen your tie, relax, settle into your booth seat and relish the wonderful feeling of a very satisfied appetite!

Service good, food meh

We went for lunch today after seeing an early film at the cinema next door. Service was very good throughout, we were being looked after by Chris and he was very good. The food was really rather ordinary though, the sort of thing you'd find at any chain pub but twice the price. Even worse it... read more

Just recently visited Frankie 7 Benny's a few days ago, after shopping early evening, we often pop into F& B. Food is Fab, atmosphere/surroundings is friendly & relaxing, and love the background music. F &B is my partners favourite place to eat, and he even loves to go for breakfast at the weekends. Recommend F & B to everyone and... More

Menu has variety and definitely feels like you are in New York. Food is generally quite good, decent customer service but when on busy times service can be extremely slow.

Came for our Christmas work do, so we pre-booked from the christmas set meal menu. I had the meatballs to start, the sauce was lovely rich and spicy and so were the meatballs, however the texture and consistency was quite foul, very processed and grey, not what I'd call an authentic Italian meatball, from my colleagues starters of prawn cocktails...

Went here for breakfast and they make wonderful english breakfasts and their full rack of ribs is a must too. When you can, i suggest trying the chocolate fudge brownie! The only problem that i had is that the new menu is not as popular as before, and is more expensive then the last special menu, so i recommend that... More

Dined here with my family (party of 5). We have dined here in the past & have always noticed that it is very busy with customers crammed behind tables with hardly any room for themselves nor high chairs/prams. Our server was very pleasant & accommodating. Food arrived in a timely manner & piping hot, just how we like it. Food... More
