“Good atmosphere and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

As a single diner I am always apprehensive in initially entering a place however I need not have worried here. I was shown to my table next to a large party celebrating a birthday and half expected to be overlooked but this was not the case. The food was really good and as I had ordered a pasta dish I decided to opt for some garlic bread. What i did not realise was that it is actually a small pizza with garlic butter. Definitely more than i would have ordered had a know. This was my only complaint, just too much.

“Great food and excellent staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

8 of us went to this restaurant for the first time and it won't be the last. From we entered the great atmosphere and got seated it was very attentive from the staff. The staff where all dressed up as it was a charity day and all in good spirit. The food was great, our 2 young boys got there meal with our starter which was a blessing. There was no rushing u out and made very welcome by the staff and the barman was the politest barman ever. Food was fabulous and staff are a credit to the name of Frankie n Bennys. We will definently be back, thanks again to Caroline and jackie.

“Service poor and food overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

We have tried the Paisley restaurant on two different occasions with years between and were disappointed both times. It took forever to get a meal and it was seriously overpriced in my opinion. My daughter visited a different branch and had the same experience.
