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.

My girlfriend had scampi and she said it was one of the best she has tasted. The staff were friendly and helpful and... read more

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!

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
