A good lunch

A fine lunch at a surprisingly empty Franco's which was well-cooked and excellently served. Nothing was too much trouble and the billet the end was surprisingly modest for the good food we had enjoyed. Would recommend highly and will certainly be returning for more.

My fiancé and I have been coming here for the past 2 years, and love it every time! We've never had a bad meal. The food is always amazing and the service is polite and friendly. If you're looking for a genuine Italian, Francos is the place to go! We highly recommend Francos, and we're always excited to come back!

i had heard good reports of Franco's and initial impressions were good with a friendly welcome and cosy interior. Restaurant was busy and took half an hour before we ordered. Disappointment set in when white wine wasn't cold and then waited over an hour for food. When we finally reminded the waiter it was obvious they had forgotten us. When... More

First off the owner is a wonderful woman, really attentive, great personality and made us feel really welcomed. As our first time here we were really impressed with service. The place is small and cosy, a good atmosphere. The food is great too. Pizzas are very big and topped generously. I had the 4 cheese. So gooey. Everyone at my... More

I booked a table for 6 people for a birthday meal. The restaurant was very busy and this was a Monday night, but we were asked for drinks straight away, fresh bread was brought and our orders were taken. We didn't have to wait for very long at all before the amazing starters came. Recommend the breaded mushrooms with homemade... More

The Breaded mushrooms with garlic were amazing. Then we waited another half an hour for our main courses. I had the seafood Pizza which again... More

I cant believe this great place is here in our tiny town.... a mouth watering menu served up by a team of happy, friendly and efficient staff....it... More

The restaurant is very petite but staff are always friendly and welcoming. The service slows down when particularly busy but you can see they all work hard so am happy to wait. The food is wonderful and cooked fresh. Nothing is too much trouble and the decor is atmospheric and fitting. Would recommend and will return
