Me and my partner came here for nachos and chicken platter - amazing! Nice atmosphere too! We were only drinking coke - even though the cocktail menu was very tempting! The young man that served us was very welcoming too!

Great cocktails made quickly by the bar staff. We come here a few nights a month and always have a good time. Just wish there was more seating!

Firstly I think it's safe to say that Franklyns is the best establishment in Heswall for both casual drinks and quick eats. I've been visiting once/twice a month for a number of years now and never had a bad experience. 5*

Hi , yes children are allowed in until 9pm if supervised by an adult!
Decent bar but bottled beer way from cold enough. Consistent problem that keeps me away. I mean what bar can't serve ice cold beer? Actually its a British disease and in this case, they either turn the fridges off and on to save a few quid or the fridges are flawed. Love to know what they say to this.
