Very impressed with the cooking of the steaks

Having not been to Franks for a couple years we visited to give it another go. I am very glad we did. The steaks were cooked perfectly to order and the sides were also enjoyable It's not the cheapest night out in Northampton, but if they can cook their steaks correctly I shall certainly become a... read more

Eight of us visted to celebrate my daughters birthday, we all ordered a main course only. It took a long time to come out we waited nearly an hour, my husband ordered his steak blue and it came out cold and full of gristle, he complained and they bought him another which was much better but it came with a...

I read the reviews for Franks and it sounded like the perfect place to celebrate our friends 50th birthday party. Upon arrival we were led up some very steep stairs which was not good for me as I suffer dreadfully with sciatica but there were no other seats available so I took the challenge and up we went. The menu... More

Went to this steakhouse for a family meal as I had been the their burger house and was told (by people that went to it a while ago it seems) that is was amazing quality for fair value and it is all fresh locally sourced produce. Unfortunately the truth is a little bit far from the reality and for that... More

I went to franks steakhouse with my husband for a nice quiet meal. We booked early and when we first turned up it was very quiet. We were given a table upstairs. We ordered food, then a large party turned up. The only people upstairs were ourselves and the party. It echoes a bit so the others were loud, which... More

We went in September & it was amazing, Friday it was rubbish. The bun was cheap, It fell apart, was chewy & squashed down to nothing - not homemade. The burger seemed to be preformed meat & didn't taste nice. Nothing like previous visits. The staff were friendly & attentive but we're let down by the food.

I went to Franks when it first opened and was blown away by the quality. Particularly compared to other restaurants in Northampton at the time. Since then it has settled and little quirks are becoming irksome. The quality is top drawer but the value aspects are questionable. It is important that they maintain the quality in all aspects (steaks, and... More

Been while since last visited and have to say steaks bit disappointing - medium rare where over cooked and the upstairs room was cold. Good wine and waiter very pleasant and helpful. Just needs bit more attention to detail

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
