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

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 more regular visitor

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
