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.

I live not far from this chippie and I visit it nearly evey Friday night. That's always a MUST for my wife and I and we are always welcomed by their staff. The food is ALWAYS top-notch and plenty of it for a quite reasonable price.

It is almost impossible to eat the huge portion of fish and chips served so we buy one and share it between two. The Size does not diminish the quality which is superb every time.

As the subject says they are the best Fish and chips in Plymouth. Very friendly and helpful staff. Happy to travel that extra distance to get fish and chips. Portion size is amazing for the price.

Thick, hard, dark batter, tasteless fish with chips that looked great but were rock hard and dry. Won't be going back as there are better chippies nearby that are so much better - Benbow Street Chippy for one. Shame really as Francine's was once the No 1 in Plymouth. Very efficient service but have taken their eye off the ball... More

Heard a lot of good reviews about the new upgraded shop so went on my lunch break to try them out again only to find that the staff were talking in their own native language and laughing very rude and very unfriendly to customers! which I have noticed on several trips. The portions were big but my chips were not... More
