We went to Frankie and Bennys on a Sunday evening and I was shocked at how appalling this restaurant was. The restaurant itself was filthy, with an ant infestation crawling along the windowsill and furnishings covered in dust and dirt. The food was disgusting - it was clear that nothing had been prepared freshly on site. The potato skins were... More

We hadn't booked but we were seated within a couple of minutes and the waiter was incredibkuq polite. The menu was varied and I could easily have eaten pretty much everything on there, kids meals were... More

My sisters took me to Frankie & Benny's for my birthday lunch in March and I thoroughly enjoyed eating there. The atmosphere was nice and the staff were friendly. The food came hot and tasted nice. Nice comfortable seating and good background music. I will definitely go again.

We have eaten here many times over the years with our 2 children, (now aged 11 and 8) but todays visit was a bit disappointing. We knew it would be busy as today is Fathers Day, and to be fair we only waited about 20 mins for a table and the service was friendly although a little slower than usual... More

Good food and service at a reasonable price. Very enjoyable visit. Our grandson was thrilled to have a fuss made of him including the singing of happy birthday for his third birthday. It was worth it just to see the look of joy on his face.

Great atmosphere, excellent friendly staff, swift service (and never feel rushed), good value and food is always better each time (we are regulars!). Only observation is the loos could have more regular inspection but otherwise, one of the best places in Croydon

Friendly staff. Good service always and good food. Mega burgers! Deserts good too- big enough to share, so save on costs. Entertaining little children's packs, while you wait.
