After hearing quite a few different comments from various parents and bloggers we thought we’d give Frankie & Benny’s a try out.
We went to the restaurant at about 12.30 on a Wednesday and the place was pretty quite so it was only seconds before someone was helping us to the seats. This caused the first concern as this was the seats -
Not exactly what you’d expect from a multinational company. But we’ll stick with it.
To the staffs’ credit it wasn’t long before they asked for our drinks order and whether we’d like a starter. We decided to go for the garlic bread with cheese which when it came out was the size of a pizza. The girls went for pizza and spaghetti, Laura had sticky prawn pasta and I went for BBQ chicken and ribs.
Once again the service was quick and the meals came out looking good. The two children’s meals looked easily big enough for a 12 year old let alone a 4 year old and an 18 month old. Laura’s came in a bowl and was full and mine looked like this
It looked good and tasted good, my main concern was the lack of food, I was expecting a fair size chicken and half a rack of ribs, what I actually got was a small bit of chicken made up of mainly bones and 3 ribs…3 RIBS!!!!
We then had ice creams each with to be fair you can’t really go wrong on.
So far we’d had good service and the food tasted good. So before we get the bill I head to the toilets, which is normally uneventful but unless I’m out of the loop I’m sure the cubicle is meant to have a look on the door?
There is a bolt but no catch? The last time I checked I’m sure they only cost about £1 and can be fitted in about 2 mins but this must be some new continental thing!
When I returned after trying not to flash anyone who walked in to the toilets we got the bill.
The total for 4 meals plus ice creams and drinks would have come to £51.75 but I had a 20% off code so it came to £42.50 which I guess wasn’t too bad.
Overall service good, food good but in need of lots of TLC.
