“Just the usual”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The usual standard stuff. Efficient staff and average food. Basically you get what your prepared to pay for.

“Birthday meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Came here for my mums b'day and restaurant wasn't full but I think that's more about the time and day (2pm Sunday) but fast service with a smile and very helpful as we had a 2 year old plus food was lovely. The only downside I would say is that bench is rather close to the table (both fixed and cannot be moved)

“Saturday night shambles”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Second and final visit. Saturday night and 7:30pm. Half empty restaurant, hardly any staff, one girl reluctantly serving behind the bar who threw empty bottles into a bin right by us - thanks ! Then served cold food when there must have only been a dozen people left in the restaurant. How does this happen? 6 staff in the kitchen, none of whom thought to cook it fresh and hot - just dragged something from a warm storage container in sure. No management around, 3 staff on the floor all of whom clearly wanted to go home after mopping behind the bar even before it was closing time - says a lot about staff moral and service .. Won't be back again

“Good Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We popped in to the new Frankie and Benny's this week for breakfast as we noticed that breakfast is £5 all morning everyday of the week.
You can pick any of the breakfasts for £5 between 9am and 12noon.
We had a big breakfast and the four egg omlette with cheese tomato and bacon.
The quality was good as was the service.
We also opted for 2 "bottomless" filter coffees for £1.75. We were pleasantly surprised that it really was unlimited and there was no delay in bringing a fresh one when ordered.
The staff were pleasant and friendly.
We would visit again and take the children, especially for breakfast as the children's breakfasts at £3.95 also looked good value for money.
