    I've eaten at F&B's twice in my life time and it was average at the very best. The second visit, I don't know why the waiter gave me and my dad spoons when we were eating spaghetti and meatballs?!

    You put the spaghetti on your fork, push it up against the spoon, and twirl it around the fork so that it doesn't fall off the end.

    Unless you're one of those weirdos that eats spaghetti with a knife, of course

    Or the waiter gave you just spoons, which would actually be weirder than a knife tbh (practically speaking).

    We didn't even get forks.

    Restaurant Group is the owner of Frankie and Bennies. I believe a FTSE 250 listed company trading on the LSE (London Stock Exchange)

    They own a lot of other brands, but I feel these "Family" restaurants are dying, when you can get equally good food in a supermarket.

    Nandos killed them

    There's a Frankie and Benny's near my campus and it seems to be permanently empty, I'm surprised they even lasted this long

    I like F&B.

    In my experience the food is good if a tad overpriced. They can be slow though.

    Ben and Jerry's is owned by Unilever, so their share price will take a hit when markets open on Tuesday.

    Been twice I think, as said in the article there's a lot of competition in this sort of area and to be it was very unremarkable, I prefer TJI Fridays by far.
