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.

Massive Portion

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... read more

Having lived in Plymouth since November 2014, we have been lucky enough to have Francines on our doorstep. The fish is freshly cooked, the chips are to die for! If you don't feel like a fish supper then you can have Southern fried chicken or kebabs. If you visit Francines you won't want to go anywhere else!

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!!
