Every English town or city has its favourite chip shop, especially when you can also sit in and where the shop is a local hub or draws customers from miles around. Francine's is one of those. On the fringe of a very poor area, but award winning constantly busy and renown. Not fine dining but a good option for locals and visitors.fresh fish from the local quay. Well worth a Tripadvisor listing.

Like other comment.... defeated

I enjoyed the triple cheeseburger so much I ate it all... The only thing I forgot to account for was the chips I ordered. Lovely as they were I couldn't finish it.

The portions at Francine's are huge making it really good value for money as you can easily split the chips etc. Services is always friendly and we've never been disappointed with any of the food. Much better than the other fish and chip shop near us!

Huge portions, all that I've tried I've really enjoyed- this is one chip shop worth travelling to! The clientele of yelling adults and children can't be helped- at least the service is quick enough for it to be a painless experience! 🙈

Had fish & chips from here with a friend. We couldn't believe how big the portion was, neither of us could eat it all. The fish was beautiful with crispy batter that wasn't greasy at all. The chips however were a little disappointing, they tasted as if they'd been cooked a while ago & then heated back up which was... More
