We were recently invited to our local Frankie & Bennys as part of their new Halloween campaign Frankies Fangs.
If you visit a F&B restaurant between October 31st and November 2nd you will receive some fangs at the end of your meal. You can also take part in some fun family fundraising in aid of Children In Need. You can always win a family meal by tweeting your pic with your fangs to #frankiesfangs. Check out the F&B Twitter page for more info.
We went for lunch on a not too busy Monday at a restaurant just a few minutes away from our home. We have eaten in this F&B’s a few times and have never been disappointed. The staff are very friendly, loud children are more than welcome and their breakfasts are rather epic.
This time we indulged in a three course meal which turned out to be rather more than we actually needed to eat but hey we don’t do it often.
To start we had:
The meatballs were rather fiery but so good. I enjoy some heat. The potato skins were delicious and I loved the sour cream on the side.
Next up was penne carbonara for me and my mum, a Cajun mayo burger for Andrew and sausage, chips and peas for Izzy.
I shared mine with Chloe and there was plenty to go around along with a huge side salad (you could have had fries instead but I find fries with pasta rather strange) Izzy ate most of hers leaving only a few stray peas and Andrew and my mum loved their meals too.
Pretty soon we were onto desserts. My mum opted for a fruit salad, Izzy and Andrew chose brownies and icecream and I had a selection of ice cream including blueberry, peanut butter and cookie crumb.
I was extremely impressed by my ice cream. Sometimes ice cream in restaurants is too sugary and tastes a little artificial, this was properly flavoured and creamy. Everyone really enjoyed their desserts..especially Izzy who was very disappointed to get to the bottom of her sundae glass.
We really enjoyed our meal although our little ones were a bit young for the fang sweeties so we may have stolen those for ourselves 😉
