Ate here three nights on the trot (out of laziness!) - nothing outstanding, but OK and reasonable value. Decent range on offer, but did not feel the 'Italian home cooked' fayre - more like standard chain restaurant fodder. Decent beer (Doombar) although they ran out, ribs were really good, but sweetcorn was insipid. Steak and lasagne were just OK.

Agree breakfasts at F&B are good, based on that prior knowledge i went for lunch. Mistake.. Now the serving staff were excellent, the chef (or tv soap school diner cook) was not. I ordered a spaghetti bolognese and salad, as an Italian Styled establishment i thought Frank or Ben would serve up a decent traditional dish. Sorry to say...... The... More

A great menu. Having not eaten at F&Bs for several years I was expecting a poor offering, but got decent low cal food and very nice Montipulciano to accompany my pasta. Staff were attentive, but with only one chef on (Monday night in Janaury) we waited about an hour for our starters. MOre time for wine at least.

Did not want to drive from Holiday Inn Express we were staying in, so had little option but to use this Restaurant. Was surprised how busy the place was, given its remote location. Greeted quickly and show to a table. Ordered Italian meatballs and BROOKLYN BRUSCHETTA as starters. Both were very OK, but I felt overpriced for what you got.... More

Came for a meal and the staff were very welcoming. Despite being short staffed the waitressing were amazing and nothing was too much for our waitress. Food was fantastic and pipping hot. Will definitely be returning

An ok place to eat, a little bit pricey and the music is a little too loud for a restaurant. Good service but drinks could be a little quicker.

Visited as a party of 10 for a family member's birthday. Found waitress to be quite rude when asked if we could have separate bills as I had a discount card - told in no uncertain terms that we couldn't as we'd booked as a table of 10 and that I was "trying to cheat them"??? I tried explaining that... More

Stopped by With my boyfriend for dinner, had a lovely meal, can't complain, service was fast. Was served by Demi-Lee who was attentive and made sure that we were comfortable and happy throughout. Lovely smile, very welcoming :) definitely coming back, would recommend.

This is okay if you like cheap tasting food at expensive prices. Yes, the staff are friendly and the service quick. The menu sounds great but after that everything is disappointing. Just average gross. The best thing to say is it is well set up for families with young children. Even then, McDonalds next door is probably a better option.
