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.

Friday evening take away meal

It has had new owners for quite a while. Always busy and food to a constant quality. A portion of cod and chips is sufficient for two at £5.90. and freshly cooked and hot. Recommend.

Always go in here after watching the football at Home Park. The staff are always very friendly and quick to serve people. The portions are huge and are always excellent. I've never had a bad meal here yet. My favourite chip shop.

I've had many a fish supper from here, also lunches for family and friends or just for myself! Never have I had a less than super tasty takeout. Always freshly cooked and the place is always immaculately clean! The portions are more than ample and the cod at times are rather large, certainly not for the faint hearted. They also... More

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!
