When looking up and down Wellingborough Road it is very easy to miss Franks as it tends to blend in with the rest of the business along the road, a few others do stand out. However once inside you find yourself greeted by a friendly team and the decor, lighting and general feel of the place seem a... read more

Second visit. Not overly increases first time. Took ages to get a drink, even then one was wrong, food was OK bar one steak which was cooked incorrect but couldn't be bothered to wait for food so ate it. Just very slow and uninspiring. Waiting staff need work, came across very inexperienced. No atmosphere. We were happy enough chattering and... More

Best steak I've eaten in a restaurant for a long time, chips fried in beef fat are great and brought back memories of when I was a kid. Home made desserts are of a good quality and very tasty all in all a really nice meal. The staff were very efficient and only spoke to you when they needed to,... More

I decided to treat my grandmother to a meal out at Franks, I didn't expect we'd be served raw chicken! Both my grandmother and I decided to go for the chicken scotch egg to start; we started to eat, only to find that much of the chicken in the centre was uncooked! After notifying the waiting staff, we were told... More

Having had an excellent meal at franks burgers in billing I was keen to give the steak house a try and having been unable to get a table the first time we tried I was expecting something special. Well, we ordered two share platters between the 5 of us for a starter. One dish arrived with 3 chicken thighs in... More

Now I would give a 5 but the only let down was the price and space. The food was amazing, really well cooked and fantastic taste, but the price was a little to much, considering what you actually get! You dont get any portions on the plate like mushrooms or onion rings, they are extra and are a price. We... More

We went to this restaurant for a celebration meal for my Nephews Birthday, there were nine of us including two small boys. The food was very good, and well cooked. We mainly had steaks which came in a variety of sizes depending on how big an appetite you had, overall it is quite expensive given that the main meal consists... More

Now I am happy to pay for quality, but 2 starters, 2 Steaks and 6 cranberry juices for £95 is not cheap for this food!!!!! Got to be honest, think harvester compares with Franks. If it was quality that I was eating then great, but it was not. By the way hottest day of the year and no air conditioning... More
