We were staying at the Travelodge in Basildon. At 8.00am on a Sunday we went to look for breakfast. Frankie and Benny's were advertising a breakfast at £5.00 but Chiquitos (next door) were advertising breakfasts from £3.95 with a lovely picture of the breakfast.
As there were six of us in the family we thought this would save us money and the breakfast looked just what we wanted.
We returned after they had opened. What a shock, the breakfast shown outside at £3.95 was a complete scam. It was actually £5,99. Unfortunately we had two very hungry little ones with us so we had to order as they could not face having to go somewhere else. The waiter was pleasant. We ordered our food and drinks and waited and waited and waited. Eventually drinks arrived and then a long time later the food. The youngest one in the high chair was by then crying as he was so hungry. There were only two other people in the place, god knows what the service would have been if it was busy.
They need to realise that little ones need to be brought their drink and food quickly, not leave them for approximately 20 minutes before bringing them anything.
Don't be taken in by their offer it is actually much more expensive than it looks, and not worth the money even then.
