Haven't got a bad word to say about francescas, except maybe it popularity. Service is extremely quick food is delicious and the price unbeatable. If you want a table turn up around opening time.

We sat down for our meal around 8pm and we were still ordering main meals at around 8:30pm so last food orders are definitely after 8:30pm - maybe call them to find out for sure!
