Visited with a bunch of friends... I'm a veggie and there were loads of options for me! Even on the set menu (most restaurants only have one veggie option) there were a few! Our waitress Shannon was fun and gave us a great tip.... if you order off the set menu (2 courses for), for an extra couple of quid... More

Stayed at the nearby premier inn and visited this restaurant for dinner. When we went in , it was quite empty but it still took a very long time for someone to take our drinks and food order . The staff are all teenagers and are really doing their best but they need someone to coordinate them to improve service... More

Stopped for breakfast. The restaurant was quiet which meant I was served quickly and received the food in good time. Plenty of choice on the menu. The food was really good. Breakfast with a coffee cost just under £8. Good quality and value.

After reading recent reviews about poor service, was the complete opposite. Our waiter Josh was brilliant, very attentive and friendly to us and all his customers. The food was lovely and tasty and was delivered in next to no time. The lunch menu had a great choice at good prices. Just point about the ladies bathroom two of the three... More

I turned up, waited for a bit by the service desk and was eventually shown to a dirty table, which the hostess tried to clean (the place was half empty and othe tables were available...) She immediately asked me what I wanted to drink, without letting me sit down or see what was on the menu. I said give me... More

We were left for over 20 minutes before we were asked for a drink. In this time other tables had been seated, had there drinks order and... More

Having had many meals at Frankie & Benny's, this place is not good! We were seated quickly & asked what drinks we would like....then it went down hill! The waitress was ages with the drinks & got the order wrong. When we corrected her, she made us feel like it was our fault, when clearly SHE got it wrong. She... More

Decent meal however can be inconsistent sometimes. Much better value to visit during the week when prices are lower. Service is generally ok but sometimes slow. The theming as a Italian American diner is good.
