Used my F & B app for kids eat free but not really much of a saving as lunch deals were better value (lasagne on main meal was £10 and lunch deal lasagne was £6:95 and came with chips and salad??) Food was fine, service efficient and restaurant clean and tidy. One of the more expensive family meals whilst in... More

Slow slow service, overpriced food & apathetic staff. Lost income because there was no time for desserts or coffee having waited 70 minutes for main courses to arrive. The serving staff appeared disorganised & not focussed on their own tables but all doing a mish mash & no one taking responsibility. The food when it eventually arrived was passable but... More

First time in this restaurant, heard good things. We had booked a table about a month ago so were surprised when we got there on time, to find the table not ready. We were given a buzzer to say when it would be ready, while we waited we had a drink, bar staff very friendly. Table was booked for 7.30... More

First time we'd eaten here. Our waitress was lovely, attentive and friendly. However the food was very disappointing. All three of us had the burgers. Quite bland and tasteless. Definitely not worth the money. Very overpriced for what you get. £12.45 way too much for what we had. Won't be returning.

Great for unlimited tea/coffee. Breakfast not as in New York, underdone bacon, food served was warm not hot, very oily, edible.

I've visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and have never experienced any problems until recently. Me and my friend decided to go out for a catch up over a meal and chose Frankie and Bennys because we both have had good experiences from there before. We walked in and there were only four tables that were full, we... More
