Decided to eat here for anniversary meal. The food was average my partner's burger had so much grease dripping from it it was disgusting. Servers not really friendly or talkative.the whole experience was very forgettable.

Hi we booked a table for 15 and it was a big disappointment. The food took ages to come despite being a large group the restaurant was very quiet so whilst we expected a wait we didn't expect to wait so long. We had 8 young children with us who got very restless. We asked for the childrens meals to come out first. However there was a mix up in the kitchen and the adults meals came out first. We complained and the waitress was very apologetic and at the end they took the kids meals off the bill. My food was cold and dry (I had a chicken pitta and fries). I couldn't be bothered to complain again as I was so hungry. General consensus around the table was over priced for the adult food and not that great and simply not worth the wait. Would I go back...probably not

We had an impromptu visit for lunch after going to the cinema. We ordered from the lunchtime meal deal as many places tend to do for lunch. Unfortunately the food was poor in both quality and presentation and it's not hard to see why F&B as a company is struggling if this is what they are regularly serving their customers. There were numerous chefs on duty however much of the food served did not appear freshly cooked and looked like it could have just come out of the freezer. For the same price you can get far better quality food at other chain restaurants or even independent restaurants on the nearby Barbican. I wouldn't waste your money here and for the management of F&B you need to look at what your competitors are doing and learn from!

Kids burger meal tough and overcooked. Ordered steak medium done and came out with the blood coming out asked to be redone and came out tough. Meal was tasteless and mushrooms looked and tasted like they came from a tin. 3 quid for a regular lemonade and the they charged 20% on top of the bill. Never again.

We used to go to the Frankie & Bennys in Leicester loads when it first opened, so when in Plymouth with friends for a sports event we thought it would be a good choice.
Well we were pretty disappointed, service was ok, though we had to wait for a table as we’d not booked in advance. That is fair enough as it was a bank holiday weekend.
Meals were disappointing, used to have huge helpings and tasty, with lots of interesting options.
Was also very noisy.
