Quite a regular to this chippie and we've never been disappointed, the fish is lovely and do recommend the Kebabs. Can get very busy but lots of staff working hard and it's well worth the wait.

Was quite excited about the thought but the realisation did not live up to the anticipation. The chips were fairly bland, fish was well cooked but the batter was rubbish. Soft, greasy and a good few Mil thick, not in the slightest crispy. Having had...More

Fish and chips are excellent, the fish is more of a whale and the chip portions are HUGE !! Never had a bad take away from here but the wait to order is a little long , I always phone through first !

We pre-ordered fish and chips for Francine’s, explained on the phone that we didn’t want the order cooked too early and drying out, we were told the order would be finished off when we arrived. The shop is nice and clean and well set out...More

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.
