Enjoy jam- packed juicy burgers along with some fresh hot sandwiches and a wide variety of flavourful appetizers. Signature steak grills and the fantastic range of fall off the bone pork ribs are a must have when visiting TGI Fridays.
Famed for its fantastic drinks selection, guests at TGI Friday's can challenge bar tenders to rustle up a mix from its 500-strong cocktail list, like the classic strawberry daiquiri, or the signature raspberry-spiked Haymarket. Ultimate thick shakes, Cooling slushes, chilled beers and wines are also on offer.

Portion sizes have changed dramatically and still at the same cost. Was not happy with my visit to TGIs and normally that’s mine and my partners favourite place to eat but we were very disappointed this time round.

Unfortunately we chose not to stay and eat at TGI's as whilst we were seated promptly, when we were finally asked our drinks order, the first two choices (a bottle of Pinot Blush & a bottle of White Pinot) we were told that they had neither in stock as 'it was a Sunday and everything had sold on Saturday night'. We then asked for a bottle of prosecco and the waitress went to check, eventually came back and informed us that they did, however she had placed it in the fridge to cool as it was room tempreature. We were there to celebrate my mothers birthday and therefore wanted to have a good time with drinks and food, as the two top drinks of our choice were unavailable, and our third not looking to get to us for at least 15 minutes, we decided to go elsewhere. I have had lots of great experiences at TGI's previously, however the ubove are my views on the latest visit which was dissapointing.

The lights got turned down a bit too much just after we sat. Not sure why as it wasn't needed. Everything was great though.

It’s not the TGI service I remember 15 yrs ago! Servers seemed lacklustre, service slow and things forgotten. We had a birthday and brought a cake along and 4 of them stood there singing the song mostly looking like they were elsewhere! Very uninspired, we all laughed! Wouldn’t go again.

We booked TGI's for my sister in laws hen do and we were not disappointed. We had to go somewhere with Gluten free options and the food was amazing. The team decorated the area booked for us which allowed us to time to get the Hen ready. The team were friendly and so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Smiling, Happy and the service was easily 5+ stars and above. Nothing was too much. Thank you to all involved in making this is the best start to the evening. The team done you proud TGI's. Thank you thank you thank you x

Our experience at TGIF was very disappointing. We arrived to be told that, despite booking online, our table was not ready as the restaurant had been ringing all day to confirm the booking. I did not have any calls from the restaurant that day and also wondered why they would ring when I had booked online. I was told not to worry as they had space anyway. I queried why our table was not ready and was informed by- who we later found out- the manager that was not what he said. I was taken aback by the rude tone I was spoken to in. We waited twenty minutes for our table. We waited 50 minutes from arriving at the restaurant to receiving our drinks. Our main courses arrived while our starter plates were still on the table. We ordered a second round of drinks. After 30 minutes we queried where they were and found out that they had not actually been ordered. The waitress had forgotten the order. When they were eventually delivered, some were spilled on our seats. We requested to speak to the manager. He leaned on the table and responded in monosyllabic sentences before eventually saying he would sort something out. We requested the bill, to see that no amendment had been made. Our server returned to the manager and did return with a 40% discount, which was appreciated but to be honest, after sitting over two hours for starters and mains- at no point were we actually offered dessert- it was the least the restaurant could do. I absolutely could not recommend this restaurant to others due to a very poor customer service experience.

The service was a bit slow yesterday - our waiter couldn’t be faulted, but we felt there should have been a few more as the wait between courses was a bit too long!

Staff not very attentive, interested in chatting to each other. My sons and nieces birthday said I didn’t tell him when I left it on the booking and told him, had to practically force them to sing, and no balloons. No one went out the way like I saw them doing with other people, so I guess we weren’t their flavour.

Our waitress took a LONG time to bring our drinks order. The food was good but portions were modest. We paid £105 for a family of 5 (2 kids meals) and get much better value at Wagamama, Giraffe & so on. The doors to the restaurant were wedged open as it was a warm evening, but this meant the TGI diners outside who were smoking had their 2nd hand smoke blown to the interior diners. We pointed this out to our waitress but she just shrugged

We came to celebrate our children’s amazing school reports. We were served by Jenny and she was fantastic! So kind and caring with our children(ages 5&7). She took her time to talk with them and help them with a quiz. We often eat at TGI’s, it’s our boys favourite place to eat but this time was exceptional all because of our server! Thank you so much Jenny (TGI’s oracle reading)

Service was quite slow even though it was quiet, (lots of chatting between staff members) food was put up one by one on hot counter and as there was 6 of us this took a while meaning by the time it was all brought over the food was quite cold, we didn’t complain as it was my daughters birthday.

Service was terrible. Long waits for food and drink, Wrong items brought, and on one occasion another side dish brought when we already had one. Feeling was that the staff did not seem to be paying any attention at all.
