I’ve never been fan of the famous ‘Full English Breakfast” so when my boyfriend asked if I wanted to go for breakfast at Frankie and Benny’s I was unsure. It’s not something I have ever done before, getting ready for breakfast apart from on holiday but I thought it would be worth a try. Other friends had tried their breakfast and said it was so good and worth the money.
The set up of the breakfast service was exactly the same as lunch time or tea time, we were politely shown to a table and as it was late morning we were asked if we would want the lunch menu or breakfast. Breakfast it was! I was surprised to see the variety of foods that were up for grabs on the menu and pleasantly surprised to see they did other things rather than just the full english. I quite fancied a sausage sandwich yet I was disappointed to see they didn’t have one on the menu without a fried egg. However, when the waitress took my order she was more than happy to order it without the egg. With the sandwich I ordered a side order of hash browns and a glass of apple juice.
The service isn’t one of Frankie and Benny’s good things. I often find that no matter what restaurant I go to I am left waiting for my food for longer than necessary. When the food finally arrived I was disappointed to see that the chefs had got my order wrong and had it fact placed an egg in the sandwich. The waitress was extremely apologetic and took my order away to be fixed leaving me to munch on the hash browns. My order arrived back with yet more apologies, I shrugged them off and tucked in. The food was really good, as it always is at Frankie and Benny’s, however I think the length in which they make you wait for it is slightly unnecessary.
Both me and my boyfriend fully enjoyed our sandwiches and my boyfriend took full advantage of the re-fillable tea and coffee. I would say that the price of the food is slightly higher than it should be especially for a sausage sandwich yet the perks or the meal such as the 99p re-fillable coffee make up for it. Those of you that are into your ‘Full English Breakfast’ should definitely try theirs out, all their big breakfasts are only a fiver.
Frankie and Benny’s is always somewhere I will visit again, but I’m not too sure whether I would go for breakfast again but its something you should all try out!
