Frankie and Benny’s invited us down to our local restaurant in Colliers Wood to sample their menu and get in the Halloween spirit! We visited the branch in Colliers Wood, London.

We were a multi generational party – my 6 and 9 year old and myself (still in my 30s!) and my 70 year old mother. We all have different tastes and want different things from our restaurant experiences. This is where Frankie and Benny’s comes into its own: the menu is so extensive that you can generally find something you like – this is big plus compared to other family chains. Also, there is a special gluten free menu which is novel.

The kids chose from the junior menu – one had a margarita pizza and the other spag bol. Good solid kiddy favourites. Both washed them down with a milkshake (in kiddy size). Given the emptiness of the plates, I presume they were satisfied! My Mum chose fish and chips – it was a huge quantity, and she said they were delicious. I had an 8oz rump steak. It was cooked to perfection, and I had no complaints about the cut or the sides with it. All good and tasty. We shared a garlic bread to begin with – perfect appetizer. My mum had a coffee which was free refills, as our the kids soft drinks – great touch.

By pudding, the adults were stuffed. Somehow, the kids found a little room for an ice cream sundae …

Overall, it was a great meal. I love the vibe in there, with 50s and 60s tunes playing out, with the odd halloween tune thrown in for a seasonal touch! All family members happy and with full bellies.

Get down there and show your #frankiefangs this halloween!
