The kids really enjoyed the family fun day. The entertainer was very good and they enjoyed the pizza making! Thank you
Lets have more nights like this!!!
Lovely tasty food at good prices with a good variety to choose from. Service was excellent - thanks Caitlyn. Well thought out decor. Can be a bit loud during peaks times.
Great service great food! Always a lovely experience
My husband and I love coming to the Franklin as our treat. Always worth it. Yummy food great friendly staff.
Good to see vegetarian options, which were nice. Need to see more options mind you to come back. Service and atmosphere good. Table by door with wind blowing not that pleasant would want to sit somewhere else next time
The Beats By Bingo was fantastic! Would be really keen to come along again. Food was served very quickly and the portion sizes were great. Especially impressed that we were offered the chance to buy an extra macaroni bite to make the portion easier to share between two! As we arrived just as the bingo started, it took a little time to be served drinks. This was due to not going to the bar (FOMO!) and waiting for a server. If this event stays this popular, you may need to employ additional wait staff! I wish that the woodfired pizzas had been available too though as these are immense!
Went to the Musical Bingo, was a fun event. The Franklin is always putting on great events. A awesome local bar/eatery to have in Beachlands :)
beats by bingo was so much fun! well presented and awesome atmosphere.
