“Good service, decent food, but a bit pricey?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

We visited TGI Sixfields on a Saturday lunchtime in a group of 8 adults and 5 children aged 5 or under. The restaurant didn't have any record of our booking, which had been made on the phone, but there was plenty of space and the Manager made sure some tables were rearranged so we could be accommodated. The food way good - big portions too - and the service we got from our waitress was excellent, especially since she had to deal with the shouting kids. The only real surprise was that it was more expensive than I'd have expected. The bill came to £30 per adult and we didn't have starters or drink very much. I don't normally expect to pay that much in a chain restaurant.

“2nd Visit on the trot. Awful experience again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

I don't think as a family we will every visit TGI's Sixfields again. This is the 2nd time in a row now that the food and experience has been awful. The staff appeared to be very rushed off their feet and although we had booked a table it took 30 minutes to be served our drinks. The visit to the men's toilets is an experience. Did they leave it in a disgusting unclean state to provide a Haloween experience? I hope not.

Our food seemed to take an age to be served up. Was this so we would order more drinks and then have to chase where they were?

2 plates of burnt overcooked ribs with cold chips (well 1 plate had some chips on!), 1 plate of chicken strips and cold chips, and the burger was cold and greasy to go with the temperature of the chips.

Got home and could still taste cold burger grease from the burger for at least 2 hours.

Never again. We've learnt our lesson now.

“Outstanding Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Went for a meal here just me and the wife, was very busy and we had not booked we were told that there would be a 20 min wait so went to the bar to order a drink got served straight away and within 5 mins they had a table for us. The staff the whole night were fantastic and could not have done more, the food was better than i expected, the ribs were FANTASTIC and the Buffalo wings INCREDIBLE. It's not a romantic restaurant but very lively and fun would 100% recommend to people. If your looking for a more upbeat meal or somewhere to start your night out I would have to say here. Defiantly coming back.

“Teenage Birthday Party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

It seems it is the "in thing" for teenagers to choose TGI's for a birthday bash. Located on the Sixfields area of Northampton there is plenty of parking. The food was as you would expect from this chain. Ample, nothing special but tasty enough. The staff were very friendly and sang for the birthday girl. Big downside for me as a lifelong Cider drinker, was they only sold Magners which as any true cider drinker will tell you is an inferior taste. They need to get some other options in!!
