“Tasty Lunchtime Treat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We visited the Whitley Franky and Bennys and went for the two course lunch menu.
There was a good choice and the meals were reasonably priced and tasty.
The staff were pleasant and helpful.
We got there early and as we left the place was really filing up.
We will be going back soon for more of the same.

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Breakfast...awful, butter was oil, bacon was just fat and covered in black bits, chocolate chip milkshake was frothy milk, service and time waiting appalling.
Will not be returning! Stick with gunwharf outlet instead.

Hope to go back soon to try more PhD the massive and varied menu

“Great value breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Took my folks to have a spot of brunch on the Bank Holiday Monday at the new Whiteley Shopping Village. The place is obviously very busy so soon after opening, but we had a lovely greeting from our hosts, who explained there would be a short delay in seating us and gave us a pager to let us know when the table would be free. That meant we had time to look in a few shops, and we got a message about 20 mins later to say they were ready, couldn't have been easier.
Our waitress and host continued the friendly service throughout and we enjoyed our generous helpings of breakfast that were nicely cooked, and came very quickly, washed down with a great cup of tea. You can get a free refill which is great value.
We enjoyed a relaxing time, and although most of the staff are newly trained, they all looked happy and couldn't do enough, despite what I can expect has been a very hectic, busy and stressful time as people flood the village, and whinge and moan about a delay in getting a table. Well done to you all, our first Franky & Benny experience, and wont be our last!
