“Fabulous place, fabulous puddings.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Been eating here for 20 years, it's simple, well cooked, excellent food. And the pudding menu has to be seen to be believed. It's not a fancy restaurant but you'll struggle to find a better cooked steak or a nicer atmosphere

I love this place. It is small and quaint but has a great atmosphere. The food is tasty, reasonably priced and the waiter is very friendly.

“Simply love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Walking into Franco's is like slipping on your pyjamas, sitting in front of the fire and escaping the winter cold. This is how my grandparents home felt to me in 1980, familiar, warm and cozy, It looks like it too. Franco's has a certain charm which you can't just create, the food, the atmosphere and attentive service all of which make this a great little restaurant. Don't expect a fine dining experience Franco's isn't about that what you will get is rustic tasty delicious food at a great price. I hope Franco's never changes and stays open for years to come!

“Don't judge a book by its cover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Francos is a local for us and consistently impresses all friends and families that we take.
Do not be fooled by the small location and quaint furnishings. Food is fresh, clean and full of flavour, but what really impresses is the service.

Nigel the waiter there has been known to memorize whole parties orders and is one of the friendliest people we have ever met.

Tables are close together which means you may end up chatting to the people on other tables who have consistently proved friendly and interesting.

Francos is also known to provide deserts that have reduced full grown adults to kids quite easily.

“We love it here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is not your average modern restaurant. It's more like going for a meal in your grandma's front room-but we think its great. The atmosphere is very relaxed and Nigel who is front of house attends to your every needs. If you want somewhere which is homely and unassuming with great food, come here. You won't be disappointed.
