My husband and I went to Frankie & Benny's this morning with my daughter, her partner and 2 of my grandsons as its my daughter's 35 birthday today. Had a great breakfast. Food was delicious, service was great and there was a good atmosphere in the restaurant. Fully recommend the selection of breakfasts.

I was with a group of around 30 and the service was excellent; however the food was very disappointing and really was basic fare. Cocktails were not great and not much choice but on the plus side we did have a fantastic waitress. I can't recall her name (begins with B I think) but her customer service skills were excellent....

A large group of us went to celebrate a birthday and all of us were left disappointed. The food was poor in that the pizza and calzones only had minimal toppings, the pasta was either totally drenched in garlic if you went for the tomato based options or completely bland if you had the carbonara (dry, virtually no sauce and...

We went to Frankie & Benny's for a meal with friends. The food was nice but nothing outstanding if a little pricey for what it is. The downside with this restaurant is it appears to cater more to parties. Due to this it can be very noisy to the point you can't hear each other speak. There is also the... More

I had booked a table at a nearby restaurant as we had a restricted time and one of our group likes more traditional cuisine. When we arrived punctually we were treated in such an off-hand manner that we left. the contrast here was striking Our waiter, Marco, was courteous and helpful and the food was delicious Most of us had...

Been a few times to F&B for dinner/ lunch but never had breakfast. All I can say is what a treat, service was great, refill coffee (all types!!) just kept coming and food was fresh, hot and tasted great! Would definitely recommend for a breakfast catch up with friends
