From rave reviews from friends and acquaintances we had looked forward to this 'treat' for a while. The reality was downright mediocre. From the grunting, no eye contact waiter, the over priced and unsatisfying meal and having to sit under a very noisy fan, we were left feeling somewhat ripped off. We had to send back one meal as the... More

Have been wanting to visit Franks for ages and finally got to do it today. What a disappointment, I'm sorry to say. We went on a Sunday lunchtime and were, for some weird reason, the only people in the restaurant. Restaurant was very cold, probably due to lack of body heat and cooking happening but they turned the heating up... More

Visited last night with a couple of the lads... And we were all very impressed by the quality of not only the steaks but also the delicious side dishes... Particularly the caramelised onions... Though both the potato dishes we had (chips & patatas bravas) were also excellent... For our steaks we all chose the 300gr Fillet, which I think was... More

One of the nicest restaurants in town. Attentive service from all staff, and are willing to go the extra mile. Were more then helpful to amend the Chicken dish I ordered and I didn't some of the ingredients. Mac 'n' Cheese is by far the best I've ever had.

Having been a few times before I thought that I would take some customers out for dinner. As always the steaks were superb, I believe that the owner also has a share in a beef farm so that he can source the best local meat. The chips cooked in beef dripping may not be good for your diet but they... More

Having eaten at Frank's steak and burger restaurants several times before - and had a positive experience - we decided to book for a party of ten as a bit of an informal Christmas party with friends from the local tennis club. We were sorely disappointed with the food, service and attitude of the restaurant's management. Things started badly when... More

We booked a table as we thought it would be busy, but found we had the whole restaurant to ourselves, which actually made us feel like they had open the place just for us. A young lad was serving whose name was Alfie, who had a charming manner and had a sense of humour. My friend and I had the... More

We have eaten here a few times and the steak has always been lovely and cooked just as we requested. The most amazing part of the meal for me is always the pink peppercorn sauce! The sides however have been disappointing at times. We ordered the mushrooms which were so watery they were inedible. The chips are never quite up... More

The steak was good and the service similar. I was a little disappointed that this wasn't the best steak in Northampton, particularly as it brands itself a "steakhouse." That said, it was cooked exactly as I requested and service was good.

Went here on a christmas do with work. I ordered a well done steak, it arrived red in the middle. I sent it back and they returned it to me 5 minutes later, still red in the middle. The service was apalling! A guy fell down the stairs during our party and split open his ear on the table at... More
