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.

Had gluten free haddock and chips and cod and chips here last night. Me and my husband loved it! massive portions, lovely chips, big fish, really well cooked. Great value, less than £12 for that plus large curry sauce. all gluten free, even the vinegar which is rare! they only do gluten free on a monday - so worth it!!
