Lovely steak

Franks does the best steak you can get within quite some miles. It was cooked perfectly and was served with delightful chips. The ambience in the restaurant was nice and the staff friendly. Is say the menu is not sufficient enough and there should be a wider selection. But their main selling... read more

Having eaten one of the best burgers ever at half time at a Saints match I persuaded my mate, who works for a large national restaurant chain, to try the new Franks Hamburger at Sevens Pub. No one greeted us on arrival, unless you include the 2 unaccompanied toddlers shouting their way back to their table from the toilets. The... More

The staff were lovely and very helpful - the stayed of lamb was very sloppy and am unsure what the flavour still? The pepper sauce, mushrooms, chips and mash were BEAUTIFUL however..... The steak I ordered (sirloin) was overt done and I asked for it rare! If s steak house cook the steak wrong is not cool!

Visited Franks with my wife and three other couples for a friends birthday celebration. Cannot fault the steaks as they were perfect. Only problem was they ran out of the beer we wanted.

Franks does the best steak you can get within quite some miles. It was cooked perfectly and was served with delightful chips. The ambience in the restaurant was nice and the staff friendly. Is say the menu is not sufficient enough and there should be a wider selection. But their main selling point, the steak, is quite frankly delightful.

My husband and children loved their steak and chips and liked the presentation. I had the veggie option which was simplistic but I did not expect a lot in a steak house really... the rosemary and chocolate pudding was unusual and yummy. The Décor was fun liked the cow details in the fittings & rustic wall, the ambience just wasn't... More

Ate here on Eastr Sunday, arrived a few minutes before should have closed but the staff were retry accommodating in letting us in. Steak was good, although the side dish cabbage and bacon seemed more like a plate of soup. Wasn't bacon bits, seemed more like small sausage. It was OK, don't think we will rush back.

Took an early table here on a Saturday night with my husband and children. Starters of baked Camembert were good but, to be fair, why wouldn't they be? My son enjoyed the chicken wings as a starter. I had the vegetarian special for my main course and it was very dry and the kitchen had forgotten one of its components.... More

My partner and I decided to visit for a midweek pick me up. This is the second time I've been and the service and food was just as good. I enjoyed a rare fillet and my partner a medium Sirloin. Food is great, if a little pricey, however the speed and quality makes up for it!

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
