This is not the first time I have bought fish and chips from this take away. The quality of the fish is superb: Lovely white flaky fish. Not the awful brown cardboard served by Wetherspoons when requesting fish and chips. The size of the fillets for regular cod was good and one large portion of chips was enough for 4... More

Have tried alot of fish and chip takeaways over the years and this is by far the best. Portion size of the haddock is huge, may well be twice the size of some in other premises. Chips are tasty and again big portion size too. Reasonable prices. They must be popular as they are always busy whenever we go, but... More

Having used this establishment for many years sad to say the quality was not of the usual standard this time - hopefully a one off disappointment

Always had a good experience at Francine's. Caters for all, including vegetarians. Fast, very efficient ordering system. Plenty of staff, so quick service every time. Extremely well priced. Would highly recommend.

Been here quite a few times now and have always enjoyed the food, hence it is very busy but service is pretty quick. The portion size is massive so very good value for money.

We use this shop frequently, and the standard of food is excellent. Huge portions of fish and chips, 2 large portions of chips could easy feed 4-6 people. I cannot recommend this enough.

Always very busy in here, the prices are very good in Francine's. Have to admit my last few visits, the chips have been disappointing, and don't seem to be of the quality of few years ago. Have to say the fish was huge though, and fairly tasty. Francine's doesn't seem quite the same as few years ago though sadly.

My usual Chippy was shut due to essential maintenance 😭😭 so thought I'd give this a punt. Seeing as it is an award winning place I couldn't go wrong and was happy with my grub👍👍 Nice one.

Description
Every English town or city has its favourite chip shop, especially when you can also sit in and where the shop is a local hub or draws customers from miles around. Francine's is one of those. On the fringe of a very poor area, but award winning constantly busy and renown. Not fine dining but a good option for locals and visitors.fresh fish from the local quay. Well worth a Tripadvisor listing.
