Today we have been lucky enough to have had a lunch date at Frankie & Bennys at Birmingham Airport.
My wife was so very kindly invited to attend a bloggers event at
Frankie & Bennys, so I naturally booked the day off work and tagged along.
( Who wouldn't for a lunch date Frankie & Bennys? )
The children had no idea where we were going or what we were going to do,
We just packed them into the car and made our way to
Once we got to the airport we parked up
(once we had eventually found a space)
and made our way to Frankie & Bennys with the children still unaware of why we were at the airport.
To be honest they were a little confused because the only time we ever go to the airport is to pick up my parents or my brother when they come over to visit.
JR even turned round at one point and asked if Nanna and Grampa had come to visit.
Once we got to Frankie & Bennys we were greeted by a member of the front of house staff and Sketch
(Frankie & Bennys mascot)
and shown to our seats.
We were all shown to our seating area and we were introduced to the member of staff who was going to look after us during our visit.
The children were given a fun pack which contained a colouring book and crayons, we were given a menu to look through and time to decide what we wanted to order.
Once we had ordered our food and the children were colouring nicely, Zoom the airports mascot came to see the children. During his visit he did some activities with the children and they got to meet him and join in his fun and games.
I must say I like the idea of having a Frankie & Bennys along side the other pub, shops and restaurants within the airport.
Not only do you have a choice of a full menu to choose from but you can also choose to sit bar side of the restaurant if you wish and just have a drink before you fly.
All in all the children and ourselves had a fantastic afternoon and thank you Frankie & Bennys for putting up with us.
