Description: 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.

Our order of cod and chips and southern fried chicken and chips was freshly cooked with just a small wait considering the huge queue waiting. Service was fast and efficient and prices very good considering the huge portions. Delicious and excellent value.

Very good chippy, massive portions of freshly cooked-to-order food, friendly staff and a fair price make this a very good chippy indeed. Always busy, which is a good sign! Staff are often seen cleaning, probably one of the reasons they keep winning awards!

Very different from when I last came here a few years ago. Built into the ground floor of two adjacent houses, one a bit lower than the other. The top half is all waiting area and the other is packed with not just fryers but heavy duty fridges other cookers and a couple of heavy duty kebab rotisseries. It took... More

Simply the best chippy in Plymouth. Would recommend phoning through your order as it gets really busy. However that is a good sign! Oh and huge, huge portions!!!

We needed a Take-Away Meal as a prelude to jetting off on Holiday and as I walk past Francines daily decided to pop in on the way home. Well I watched the Customers Orders be dished up as I waited to be served and realised I had found the perfect Chippie to cover the Phrase "Ton of Chips and a... More

Service varies from sullen to positive and friendly, service is quick. Chips are crispy, very good, fish can be a bit greasy, would try all the chippies in the area, not just this one.

Been at least a dozen times over the last 6 months always to a very high standard. The portions can vary but they're always above a good size. Once I had a piece of fish that was a questionable size which probably shouldn't have been used but I'll let them off that as a one off due to the usual... More

The food at francines is faultless. Never had a bad takeawsy from here. Portions sizes are a bit inconsistent - you could go one week and get a meal big enough to share. Go another week and it wouldn't be enough. That said the food and service can not be faulted
