“Excellent food yet again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

We had another lovely evening at F&B's in Dunfermline. The food was great, I had bruschetta then chicken BBQ pizza (the same I always have!). We were having a catch up over the couple of hours and we were not rushed or felt like they needed the table back quickly even though the restaurant was busy.

One thing you do need to book a table as a Saturday night always has at least 40 minutes wait otherwise.

“Reheating cold soup!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

We have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and there always seems to be something that has to be sent back. Something not cooked right, a dish which is not hot enough etc.

“Typical Chain - Avoid when Busy!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

So this is a typical chain restaurant. they used to have the worst chef in the world which stopped us from going back but decided to give it another try after a recommendation from friends.

We went over New Year. Had to wait 20 minutes for a table (our fault for not booking - but the reason I say this is they cannot cope when they are this busy). each waiter or waitress has their area! If someone disappears it is not the other person's responsibility to serve food at the pass. we watched our food sit for 10 minutes at the pass ready to be served whilst the waitress was out the back. Some people were serving, others were milling about waiting for food - but just ignored the food that needed serving. I know it is a chain but I find that 'it's not my job' attitude shocking when you have waiting customers.

We've been back this evening - same waitress - not busy but still a bit tardy!

So Service aside the food was fine - typical F&B - cooked fairly well - the Pepper jack Pizza is simply to die for!

My top tip to avoid when busy or you have a wait.
