TWO more restaurants will sharpen their steak knives and open their doors this week on the Old Market in Hereford.

Meat lovers will have a choice where they get their sirloin on Hereford’s new retail development with Miller & Carter Steakhouse opening next Friday (May 16) and Frankie & Benny’s holding their official opening on Monday (May 12).

American-style eatery Frankie & Benny’s, with booth seating on two storeys, already drew the crowds on the development’s opening weekend, with its red neon sign catching the eye of passers-by.

Nice to have a new selection of eateries in Hereford to rival the likes of McD's and KFC (plus our excellent local chip shops), but fo these places realise that we are HEREFORD not HERTFORD when working out the prices?
I would encourage anyone to check the menu prices online before deciding to visit them, as £11 for a cheeseburger is a bit OTT for round here, especially when you can get enough from one of the local places to feed 4 for that

hmm, so 3 thumbs down after an hour?? I was trying to point out that not all of us work for the council and earn upwards of 40k per year for doing sweet FA, and hence can't afford to pay the prices charged by these multi national conglomerates, and would rather support LOCAL businesses, thus keeping money in our fair city - is there anything wrong with that????

EXCUSE ME!!!

I’m sick of you running down council workers most of us don’t earn anywhere near 40k and every week we work our backsides off and bend over backwards to try and help vulnerable people....all that with very little thanks from people like you.

We don’t always like the decisions that are made, but we do the best we can with what we are given, so next time try and be a bit more considerate when wording your comments!

Its the in thing here, constantly berate anyone who works for the terrible evil council, its obvious anyone who works for them has a wage that would make Rooney envious.

I am sure there are idiots in the council and some overpaid folks too, but I am also sure the majority are simply hard working people doing their best.

The whiners here sit behind the keyboard moaning about EVERY SINGLE thing that goes on in Hereford, but contribute very little themselves.

Yes, £11 for a Burger is expensive but as an occasional treat I cant see the problem and people will go, if not, well stick to Maccy Ds.

Cant wait to have an evening at the Cinema and then one of the eateries as well, I aint on £40,000 a year either but I think I can stretch to that...

I gave you a thumbs up. i agree with you about the prices. i know steak is expensive, but the price is a little high for me even if I liked steak.

i am fussy about my food anyway in that my diet is rubbish and I don't eat a lot of this food that comes from these eateries, so the chance of me going into any of them is pretty slim.
30 odd years since i been in Mcdonalds. I did have a nice burger and chips with a coffee in the Kings Fee today, for just over a fiver, you can not complain.

Ooooooh herefordman99, you have really stoked that fire with petrol.

Most of the people who who complain about the council on here are talking about the leaders and managers. Everyone with a couple of brain cells to rub together appreciates there are a hundred frustrated perfectly decent worker bees for every incompetent overpaid manager telling them to do something pointless.

These 'restaurants' are not going to showcase what is good about Herefordshire. Frankie and Benny's New York Diner ??, Nanados, ?? How can this be a vision for the future of Herefordshire.

Also, if you are prepared to eat the chicken in Nando's you should do a bit of research about how it is reared. I wouldn't eat there.

My apologies for causing offence to those at the council who do actually work, some of the council employees are doing a fantastic job, I actually meant the upper ranks, the leaders who get an expense acount and can then claim it back, so doesn't actually cost them anything.

So again, my apologies to those at the council that do work, and work hard for us.

Wow you must really treat your family well if you eat out and get 4 meals for £11

Treat being the operative word in that statement. In this day and age a trip to the chippy for tea is a treat. But it can be done for £11 if you know where to go.
2 x Large chips = £5.40 then whatever else on top, usually jumbo sausages/fishcake, so yes it can be done for £11 quite easily.
Even earning a good wage, it's still not financially viable for me to take the family to one of these new places, it would cost the same as a weeks rent! I know which i'd prefer, a roof over my head to an over priced burger and chips!!!
