Came here for a birthday meal with 12 yr old daughter and friends. Napoli salad sounds nice. 2 of us ordered. Unfortunately the chef can't read. Sent 2 ceasers instead. We sent them back. Out came 2 x Napolis. But no resemblance to the menu - no mossarella, chopped green chillis, or fresh basil. They came out with a few... More

Staff were all very plesent. I had calamari for starters but it was cold. Told the staff member who apologised and replaced it. But when they returned with the new starter it was just breadcrumbs and hardly any squid at all. Very disappointed and told the staff who again apologised and asked me if I wanted another one or something... More

My family and I visit the area every year and F&B is always a port of call as its service and food and choices thereof were always excellent until recently. The choice of food in general has been massively reduced, in particular for those requiring a gluten free diet. The staff were not interested in helping, the service was slow... More

Came here for a meal and had a fabulous time, the staff were polite and attentive and nothing was to much to ask for. We arrived during a busy period but was seated and waited on considering how popular the place was I was surprised at how efficently and productively we were serves while being made to feel like we...

Ordered Napoli salad. Described as mozzarella, tomatoes, olives, breadsticks etc. Sounded ok. What came was a bowl half filled with a few lettuce leaves and a couple of olives with two thin breadsticks. I kid you not, that was it! They wanted £11 for this!! Absolutely no chance. I sent it back and left. Absolutely stunned.

Came as a family with children. We love frankie and bennies especially because they cater for coeliac. The service was good and starters were quick but unfortunately had an hour wait for mains which they said was because of the lamb shank. Deserts were delicious, a little over priced for profiteroles though. The server forgot our spoons so had to... More

I visit this branch every couple of months when I am in the area. I have always been very pleased with whatever food I choose and the service has always been good. There can be a wait sometimes for the food but this is to be expected as the place always seems to get rather busy. I've only eaten here... More

I have never left a review on a restaurant because of one reason, I'm in the same business and understand being critical can sound like moaning. In this case something needs to be said and I only wish I had reviewed this place before going, as there seems to be little love for it. The service was fine with as... More

Popped in before we went to the cinema and as we were in a bit of a rush they served us very quickly and very attentively. The food was as expected and overall we felt very well looked after
