Discusting service! Went to bar & staff just kept walking past serving everyone else but me! Then we sat down to eat. We got moved to another seat as they were getting ready to serve breakfast & was told someone would be straight with us to take our order. Waited & waited & nobody came! They kept asking man on table next to us if they were ok & needed anything but didn't even acknowledge me & my partner! At one point, 2 members of staff were standing round near the bar, one of them with their arms round them! Ended up walking out & ordering food from takeaway instead! Bunch of idiots with no people skills that have no clue how to run a restaurant

“Slooooowww service”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We popped in to have dinner at the Frome Flyer on our way back from visiting family, we live in Frome but couldn't be bothered to cook so thought it might be a nice relaxing change to eat out.
Oh how wrong could we be, the first mistake we made was walking in the place the second was waiting half an hour at a drafty table crammed next to an open chimney (where we had been seated) before we got fed up being ignored and walked out never to return!
Talking to friends who have also used this place recently we have come to the conclusion it should definitely enter the restaurant with poorest service in the west competition because I can guarantee you it would walk it!
I can only imagine that this place only stays open because of the captive trade of the poor soles who stay in the Premier Inn attached to this (I'm even struggling to call it a restaurant) place, to them all I can say is my thoughts are with you!
In conclusion, if you are a masochist or don't like the person you have invited out to dinner and want to go somewhere to eat and be ignored by the staff whilst freezing your backside off, I can assure you the Frome Flyer will be perfect for you!
Great restaurant to recommend to someone you really really don't like!

“Bad Experience”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Stayed for two nights at the Premier Inn and used this restaurant. Breakfasts bacon overcooked sausages hard eggs like rubber. Sent three out of the four meals on the Saturday night back after waiting quite a long time for them to be served. Would certainly never use this restaurant again

“Good value, but slow and quirky service!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Our grandchildren love this place - but its a bit hit n' miss as far as the service goes. We waited a loooong time for our meal and the restaurant was not very full. The food was good but several items we not quiet what we ordered and the waitress appeared to be from another planet!

“Miserable staff”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Tried this a few times, and unlike other Table Table places that we have popped into, this one is below par.
Mostly, it was the miserable faced and grumpy mannered staff that dragged it down.
Wont go back to this one but would still try other Table Tables, usually good value, good quality chain type food.
