“Great food and drink”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

Stepped into this great steak house just by chance and could not have been happier. My friends and me (four in total) were greeted at the door and seated straight away, for a Wednesday evening the downstairs was full with a great atmosphere. Fxbs has a great selection of drinks and the staff all knew there stuff I went for a anchor beer and it was beautiful. I had prawns to start and we all shared a portion of bread and dips which you get a generous potion. I then had the hock of pork while all my friends opted for steak. The hock of pork was heaven the crackling was out of this world highly recommend this to anyone, the steaks where great by all accounts too,didn't have a dessert safed room for a few after dinner beers. Had a great night and will be back many times, the staff just couldn't do enough for us thank you fxbs

“Not as good as usual”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

I was in FXBs this evening a restaurant I really enjoyed last time I was there.
The staff are always great, the atmosphere is always inviting but this time the food was surprising. I ordered the tiger prawns to start. The prawns were beautiful, but it was a pity about the side salad. For main I had the Thai beef salad, there was too much dressing on the salad. Someone was just a bit to liberal. I have has this salad a number of times and always enjoy it. Next time I will just ask for it on the side.

Overall great service, atmosphere and just an off night with the food. Wouldn't stop me from going back!!

“5 star food but great value prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

We went to FXB Buckleys on Saturday night for a birthday celebration. We had the early bird menu which runs up until 7.15pm. We all chose the steak option - with a small supplement. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and attentive - particularly Joe. Because of the obvious good weather bookings seemed down which is totally understandable but all the better for us as we received great attention to detail - again down to the staff. You really feel at home in this restaurant and we shall return.

Very nice with an interesting menu. Staff are really friendly and attentive. Went there without a reservation and had no difficulty getting seated even though it was quiet busy. Would recommend.

“Great steaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

This place is great, the food superb and the athmosphere not to be missed. Was there last Sunday and we were lucky to get a seat. Its a nice pub just to relax and have a nice quiet pint. The bar food was very nice and certainly not expensive. Well worth a visit
