Went to Frankie and Benny's as Gringos was closed. It was half full and we were seated by the barman. The first thing I noticed was the smell. It is the smell of stale washing that has been left too long, a bit like when a gym bag is left in the boot of a car on the second of... More

Personally I find this restaurant a little dark but on the plus side good attentive service with very personable servers - food was served within 20 minutes from ordering on what could be considered a quiet lunch time only about 15 covers. The food was good served hot and all guests on my table served at the same time. There... More

Nice ambiance, friendly and helpful waitress with a good choice for breakfast. The meal was well presented, well cooked and very tasty with one exception, the sausage which had garlic in it. I like garlic, but not for breakfast and certainly not in a traditional British banger, it was a nasty unnecessary surprise. Otherwise a very pleasant meal which I... More

I've never had a good or great experience at any Frankie and Benny's, only average or poor, and this was no exception. Although the service was quick, the food was lukewarm and my chicken burger had been sat on the side (we saw it) for a while before the rest of our food was ready to be brought out. I... More

It was all ok. Put on the booking it was my son's birthday, and it was rather odd that the greeter insulted my son by commenting on his lack of height for his age. Said with a smile obviously, but son wasn't impressed. Seated quickly. Drinks order came quickly. Waitress let me have happy hour price on the cocktail even... More
