The food is always amazing when I come here but the service just seems to get slower. Waiting for our order to be taken, then our food to arrive and then a bill. Food good... Service not so good

Great food reasonably priced, the usual expansive menu that's always difficult to choose from. The restaurant can be very noisy, and there are often birthday's (the announcements and singing can get a little annoying - but hey, it's Frankie & Benny's thing and you know that when you go in). The food is always good, and I love that you... More

I often make an excuse to visit for breakfast. Excellent value with good quality produce. If you need a little extra just ask. Here it comes. The menu has an option for everyone. It's sometimes difficult to choose !!

Great food, veggie options available, reasonably priced, however the restaurant as a whole is very loud, staff can often seem stressed mostly because they work hard to serve everyone quickly, and there are often Birthday's (the announcement can get quite annoying!) so be prepared. Food is lovely thought, and I love that you can look into the kitchen, chefs seem... More

The food here is always amazing, and whether you are alone or with family and friends, the service is brilliant. We dine here quite a bit, the breakfast is superb. And my favourite waitress is fay, she's so pleasant and friendly. I've never left here feeling disappointed and would highly recommend.

The food is very nice to be fair and staff are friendly. The menu is a bit expensive though so it's a now and again kind of place. The music in there can also be rather loud.

Always very nice food here, I have tried the Sirloin steak, Blt, & the pizza, all have been good. Sometimes you may have to wait half hour or more for a table so it's best to book a table. Can be a bit on the expensive side but a nice place to eat.
