Went in on a busy Thursday evening. Was served by a male and a female and they were both excellent. We had the set menu which was excellent value for money and enjoyed the atmosphere that was in the restaurant. Our waiter was called Mr Phil and the female that helped us I can only presume was the Supervisor/Manager. Not... More

I went in mid-afternoon at the weekend following a trip to the cinema with the kids. The staff were friendly but I think perhaps there weren't enough of them as the service was not good and was slow. It took some while to get our starters, and the drinks were even slower - they didn't arrive until half way through... More

Visited at 18:15 on a Friday evening, the place was manic, waited 20 minutes for a table for 2, waited a further 20 minutes to order, then waited 25 minutes for the food to arrive. Will never go again!!!!

We hadn't made reservations and decided to stop here after yhe cinema last night. The restaurant looked busy which is always a good sign, great food!! We were waiting at the entrance for 5 minutes with staff walking past (and looking) but not one stopped to ask if we wanted a table... After waiting we decided to go to the... More

I dined here with a friend on Thursday night. The Restaurant was freezing cold. After finishing our main course we had to wait over 20 minutes to be cleared. I counted staff walking past our table 17 times, including either the Duty Manager/Manager (guy with a shaved head) and completely ignoring us. They even looked at our table and carried... More

Poor food quality. But also cooked poorly. Waited 20 mins to have an order taken another 30 or so before the microwaved hard bread hit the table. Finished our drinks after 15 mins and no more offered throughout the rest of the meal. Calzone dough was on the raw side and the fillings poor. Absolute waste ....and I haven't tasted... More

Went to Frankie's and Benny's on a Sunday evening as TGI Fridays had a limited menu due to a gas leak. Food was nice as usual. But a couple of things left for a very sour taste at the end of the evening. Had put the last mouthful of my starter in mouth and hadn't even finished before the server... More

Having been to the cinema we decided to pop in to F&B's for a meal. After a very short wait we were seated in a pleasant booth. The waiter was polite and friendly and although our preferred choice of wine was not available the alternative proved very acceptable. The food was good and the additional bonus was a 20% discount...

My friend and I visited Frankie and Benny's today and were really disappointed. My friend had a chicken wrap and fries. I ordered a calzone. The plates were plonked on the table somewhat unceremoniously. There was no effort made on presentation. The food was over-priced and over-rated. We won't be going back again.

Visited at a weekend with friends. The restaurant has a small bar near the entrance and a large number of booths as well as ordinary tables. It was very noisy and the air con was rather fierce. We opted for pizzas to be on the safe side. These were fine but nothing special. Service was so so. Probably a good... More
