  1. Thanks for sharing this info. I wouldnt have thought of going in a F and Bs because I wrongly assummed there would not be enough on the menu suitable for vegans.

  2. Thanks for the info! I’d assumed that you could ask for the garlic/paisley butter as a substitute for the Neapolitan sauce? Honestly me and tomato sauce never do well together (thanks to trying it when I was younger), so ideally for a pasta or pizza dish I would need something without tomatoes?

  3. We get creative when we eat out, most places are accommodating and a lot of the chefs like the challenge. We have problems with gluten free vegan though!!!
    Frankie and Bennies don’t do gf….or do they?

  4. Fries aren’t vegan I’m afraid, they are cooked in the same oil as fish etc… 🙁 hubby works there so I know this.

    • 2nd mistake by thehecticvegan in this post suggested getting garlic butter twice, lost all faith and trust in this post.

      • The fries are confirmed to be vegan, this sounds like an individual restaurant not complying with the company policies on the kitchen – I would suggest people check with the restaurant they are in to make sure.

      • I withdraw my comment re garlic butter, it is oil based as Rich says Prob confirm that individual restaurants cook fries differently, my local fry in the same oil as fish We didn’t have fries

    • Hi Martin, I can confirm that the garlic butter is vegan, it is made with an oil base rather than butter (despite the misleading name – I guess they didn’t want to ‘put off’ non-vegans?)

      • Thank you for replying I went there today with my daughter and they confirmed what you are saying so I stand corrected I wasn’t too impressed, tbh, and prob won’t go back but it’s good to know what we can eat there should we ever return.

        • Hi Martin, that’s good to hear. I have found Frankie and Benny’s one of the hardest places to eat at so don’t often go there – there are usually more vegan-friendly places around them to pick from! But I heard today that they are planning a whole vegan menu, so they have clearly seen veganism is on the rise! 🙂

  5. I went there today and ordered the Penne Arrabiata. Just looked online out of curiosity and their allergen list says this dish contains milk products… why?! 🙁 I’m hoping your friend’s info is right. Or maybe they’ve changed some ingredients since then? Or maybe their website is just glitchy as fuck

  6. I just rang to ask F&B (cardiff) what they had on the menu for vegans………and they apologised that they do not cater for vegans. No offer at all to make things up. So I personally wont be trying them!

  7. Went into F&B at the beginning of July and they had a vegan ice cream on the menu!! So pleased to see a big chain finally having a dessert thats not sorbet or fruit salad!!! The ice cream was made from coconut milk and is vanilla flavour. Very happy about this menu change
