  1. I’ve never been but I would definitely try this out if I’m in the area. It really is hard to find good quality place to dine in near rail stations. But you’re lucky that you have found a go-to!

    Your description about any restaurants are very detailed and helpful. I like your Things to Do and Least Favourite part. I dont know whether I will go there but surely refer to my friends who goes there quite often.

  3. While when we travel we like to we always try to eat local and avoid chains, but when at home we have a couple of regular spots ourselves. There is something comfortable about familiarity. Seeing the same faces, knowing the staff, and having a favorite dish is like being home away from home.

      So true. Actually we are exactly the same. We only use chains for example in the airports or something. But back home we like to try them out when we are in the city

  4. I like your honest review of this restaurant. It looks wholesome and family-friendly. If I have experienced about the issue with the pasta, I might not come back anymore. I also like to eat at the local restaurants near where I live. It is kinda disappointing when suddenly they’d serve your favorite dish but it was off.

      Exactly Iza. You just don’t want to be let down when you think a place is reliable. Happy to say I have been back since and it was very nice.

  5. I’ve been to a couple of Frankie and Benny’s and certainly found them to bit a bit hit and miss. I think it all depends on keeping staff consistent in the kitchen, but when they are pumping out the masses of food that they do on a daily basis, it is easy to see how things can sometimes go wrong – like your watery pasta.

    The big foodie that I am, I enjoy checking out interesting restaurants. I am curious if this restaurant serves vegan food. I liked the way you wrote this review. Gives a wholesome perspective.

    Frankie & Bennies looks like a great place for a meal. I would be eating out there on a date with my 3 year old daughter, she’d probably share my dish! It’s a shame about the vouchers, that is annoying when they are not clearly marketed.

    Had not heard of Frankie Bennies before and good to know they serve vegan and have a chain in the UK. Would love to give it a try!

    Trying new food on holiday is always fun and even better when it is as family and kid friendly as this!! The kids haven’t been to Scotland but we would love to visit. Now we know where to eat!
