It looks as though they have a two-for-one thing going on at Frankie & Benny’s in Chesterfield.

Not in their meal offers – although they no doubt do good deals – but with their waiting staff.

One customer thought he was seeing double when the girl he gave his order to turned out to not be the girl he gave his order to…

Though the gentleman in question is confused rather easily he actually WAS seeing double – identical twin waitresses.

“The girls were great but I wondered if there was any confusion or surprises when people think they have spoken to one waitress when actually they have spoken to her identical sister,” said our good friend.

“Perhaps they’ve tipped one when they wanted to tip the other or generally been gobsmacked when two of them turn up side by side.”

The Diary contacted Frankie and Benny’s to try and talk to the girls and their manager to share a few upbeat twins-in-a-restaurant stories but they had to refer us to their public relations office.

It turns out that the PR department didn’t want to talk about it for their own reasons but The Diary thought our readers might find it amusing anyway.

Wonder if they share their tips?
