So, my original birthday plans fell to pieces and we ended up going to Frankie and Benny’s for a meal instead of our original choice ‘The Old Post Office’.
When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff, who then served us throughout our time there. He guided us to a lovely little table for two and left us to have a look at the menu. After some careful consideration, I decided to have the Spaghetti Bolognese and a Chocolate Milkshake. Jacob picked Frankie and Benny’s ‘special ‘meatballs and they looked delicious!
The meals did not take long to arrive at the table and we were definitely not disappointed with our choices. They were presented beautifully and they tasted just as good as they looked! The waiter brought over some parmesan cheese for our meals… we wish we could have had all of it, but we did say ‘stop’ eventually!
Whilst we were enjoying our meal, we could not help but notice the music playing in the restaurant. It was fairly loud, but not too much and the songs were a great choice too (in my opinion). The atmosphere was very relaxing and I felt very comfortable there.
The chocolate milkshake was simple, yet to die for! It was one of the nicest milkshakes I have tasted in a long time. And the bolognese was really filling, I could not finish all of it on my own.
We were offered a dessert menu after our meal, but we simply would not have been able to manage another course. I will make a note to starve myself prior to our next visit so I can have a full 3-course meal there.
The overall price of the meals was not bad at all, it worked out at less than £15 each for a drink and a main meal! Though I escaped the bill this time with it being my birthday treat.
I will definitely visit Frankie and Benny’s again in the future. The service was great, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely.
I would give our visit 4 out of 5 stars. Which I am sure would definitely have been 5 stars if we had eaten dessert and indulged in cocktails!
