Two adults, three children, for lunch on a Monday. The children's menu gave something for everyone, and was good value. Generous main course portions, tasty food and fruit drink, and ice cream for desert. No complaints there. Adult lunchtime menu, two courses at £9.95, was similarly good value, and everyone left feeling full. It's an ideal place to take the... More

Me and my friend walked in and was seen to straight away. The staff were amazing and were so polite. I ordered a double chicken burger and a Caesar salad, the service was fast and the chicken was so tender. Fair play play to the chefs and waitering people they clearly now what they're doing. I would 100% definitely recommend... More

Arrived for a late lunch and ordered as soon as we sat down. After more than an hours wait we had to threaten to leave to get served. We ordered standard kids menu pasta and a sandwich. Eventually they arrived tepid and bland. Certainly the pasta was not cooked fresh. The server was very pleasant but nearly 2 hours for... More

Went to Frankie and Bennys for a birthday meal, the waitress was brilliant really chatty and helpful, Minera made sure throughout the meal we had everything we needed and surprised me with a birthday brownie which was lovely.

Called in for lunch after a shopping trip despite being busy (3 birthday parties ) we were seated promptly. Carla was our server and was friendly and helpful even putting up with my husbands terrible sense of humour. Food was tasty with generous portions the garlic bread starter would have fed a small country! ! All in all we enjoyed

From the moment we entered the restaurant the stresses that accompany a 10th Birthday Party with 11 children were alleviated by the most amazing person. Staff member Minera and indeed all involved in taking care of us were fantastic. At one point I began to feel guilty as Minera seemed to be doing so much for our gang, but when... More

We ended up at Frankie and Bennys by chance and I wasn't looking forward to it after my abysmal last visit. I have to say a huge improvement. Carla our waitress was absolutely wonderful and very attentive. Food was served very quickly and was piping hot. On my previous visit portions were tiny but this time the portions were huge....

I had a luke warm/cold breakfast which I abandoned, polite but poor response to my concerns at the poor quality. My wife's sandwich bread roll couldn't be cut, even with a steak knife, both were abandoned, no refund offered. Polite staff but ineffectual and they really weren't that bothered. Other F+B's have usually been ok at best but this one... More

Having booked a table late Angie, the person taking the booking was extremely polite and helpful, this location is somewhat of a distance to travel but well worth the journey. Minera was extremely attentive, polite and helpful when we arrive. The food was excellent and service superb. I highly recommend this restaurant
