We ate here on Easter Saturday evening ... a group of 19 x 12/13 year old boys and 14 Dads. Don't think we had a booking, but the staff, although the restaurant was already busy, were very welcoming and looked after us from the outset. While we had a drink, the arranged tables suitable for our numbers ... and took... More

Busy saturday evening but the staff got us seated in no time considering we were a party of 8. The supervisor who took our orders was brilliant especially with brushing over how much the younger ones were being royal pains!? Food came out in good time, was hot, looked and tasted good. Only downside was they didn't have any Tiramisu?!... More

Food ordered and again took ages just for some starters which weren't great. Main courses arrived . Three of the meals were missing items for example' mushrooms with the steak' or... More

Ordered a side order of fries that never appeared but they still wanted to charge for them. The meal deal included fee re-fills of drinks which we never got , Asked for some boxes to take... More

Went to Frankie and Benny's at Trafford centre. It's located just outside the orient of the centre. Nice looking restaurant. Staff reasonably welcoming. We had the lunch menu (even though it was 4.45pm) choice of dishes for about £7 a main. We had spaghetti carbonara, which was delicious. Came with a choice of chips or salad. Salad was okay, could...

First we were seated in the dark. We moved to somewhere where we could see the food but after it arrived I wished we couldn't. The kids enjoyed their food. The kids milkshakes were undrinkable. Tasted very chemically. The burgers that the adults had were terrible, undercooked and had weird unappetising 'caves' in them. They got left. The adults ordered... More

We did very well. The restaurant was relatively quiet at 6.00pm and the service was friendly and polite. The food was very nice (Pulled Pork and Beef Burger) and my children's pizza's were eaten with enthusiasm. I super meal and the app is very helpful with securing offers and deals.
