Frankie & Benny's

Type: Italian diner (National chain)

Location: Halifax

Top Marks:

  • A portion of veg is served with every meal, and meals that pack in an extra portion are flagged on the menu – great support for healthy eating.
  • Parents were pleased to learn that farm assured meat and sustainable fish are on the menu.
  • A two-tier menu and carefully controlled portion sizes support children to eat an appropriate amount.

Could do better:

  • Sugar alert! Free refills of sugary drinks continue to be available to children in restaurants, and offered by staff to families.
  • Secret diners said that water was not freely available upon arrival in the restaurant.

Our secret diners said:

“My daughter enjoyed the meal so we did too, staff were friendly and responded well when she asked for things. The pudding was ice cream and fruit - just right.”
