We went for a meal for my 10 year old daughter's birthday. All the staff were friendly and polite. They went out of their way to make my daughter feel special. The service was good, drinks and food arrived quickly. The food was really nice and just how you would like it. My daughter was having the children's menu which... More

We were a party of 12 and went for an early Saturday evening meal after a birthday trip to the nearby cinema. The service was friendly and attentive and made us feel welcome and they dealt with one little boy's food allergies brilliantly; the waiters tablet could bring up suitable menu items based on the allergies added to the avoid...

Visited as part of a group of 12. The restaurant wasn't overly busy, I counted about 20 other diners. 4 servers working plus two in the open kitchen. It took 25 minutes to come and take our food order. 55 mins before the starters arrived. I had ordered the creamy garlic mushrooms, they were over-microwaved and the portion tiny (had... More

Normally I like Frankie & Benny's but this trip was a disappointment. It is my firm belief that the management need to sort out their staff, our server was very nervous (possibly lack of training?) at being our waitress. I think she was working behind the bar on my last visit here. I've worked in the catering trade for awhile... More

I had a meal out with my sister, it was a Friday night but it was really quite, the waitress was over the top trying to be friendly that she forgot to put our starter order though, so we ended up waiting nearly an hour, our main meal was good and hot but very small portion of pulled beef on...

I revisited F&B for breakfast. The standard breakfast was good, albeit with fatty bacon. Gone are the portobello mushrooms replaced with little tasteless mushrooms. Stingy herby dice. The veg breakfast was poor value by comparison, now with avocado. Why?? Why not give an option for an extra portobello mushroom or tomato or something.

Thank Dan R
