I was extremely surprised by this chain restaurants offerings. The service was amazingly good, and the food was great too.

visiting Carlisle from Newcastle for weekend. Visited Little Frankies for breakfast with my partner and i as didnt fancy the hotel brekkie. I can honestly say that the breakfast was absolutely perfect. Debbie who served us was very polite, helpful, friendly and professional a true credit to Little Frankies. We enjoyed the whole experience so much that we booked for dinner the same night there and then.

Keep up the good work Debbie!

Although I cant fault the food, I found the waiters toooooooo pushy .
We read the menu on the door before we went in and decided to order Cheeseburger, fries and a pot of tea.
After being seated on a nice table we were asked if we wanted doughballs... I dont know what doughballs are, they was no attempt to explain what they are.
Then a pushy waiter took our order.
Cheese burger, fries and a pot of tea X 2
He tried to sell us every side order on the menu.
"Ready steady"

We love eating at Little Frankies - it is Franky and Benny's by another name. Can't fault the food or service. We have eaten here many many times and have never had a bad experience.
