On the outskirts of Northampton city centre, just across the road from the home of Northampton Town FC, Sixfields Stadium, is a fantastic restaurant that’s great for the whole family – Frankie and Benny’s. It’s one of many across the UK, and offers an Italian-American dining experience with great service and tasty food. Its proximity to the Sixfields Stadium sees it filled up with fans after games, but even outside of the sporting season it’s well worth a visit. You can get to Frankie and Benny’s easily via the Upton Way ring road, or the A5076, so you don’t have to struggle through Northampton’s rush hour to get here.
This restaurant offers free parking, disabled access and excellent, spacious dining tables, which make it perfect for young families or big group events. The nearby cinema and bowling make it an attractive spot to base your day from, so why not pop in after working up an appetite bowling or after enjoying a film?
The menu offers a variety of family favourites, so everyone will have something they’ll enjoy. Try visiting the bar area before your meal, and enjoy a cocktail or a beer while you wait. Alternatively, if you booked in advance, make your way to the table and peruse the menu over some delicious Frankie and Benny’s sides such as spicy onion rings, house fries or a starter of double dip dough balls, complete with a garlic dip and a jalapeno cheese dip. If you’re with a big group, try the feast-worthy sharing platter of house favourites including chicken wings, loaded potato skins and toasted garlic ciabatta bread. For your main course, we recommend the 8oz 28 day aged rib eye steak with roasted tomato, flat mushrooms, onion rings and house fries.
Students can enjoy a NUS discount here. Please contact the restaurant for more information.
