This is a two sided review: I work in the offices locally and this is a 5/5* for lunch. They do a great variety of sandwiches and salads to take away. The area wouldn't be the same without it! However.. I have been for a "sit down" meal a couple of times and I don't view it as strong as... More

One of the most annoying things for me is when, it is all to clear the wait between a first course and a main meal is extended because we are having a few drinks, encouraging of course more drinks. We had garlic bread with tomato as a starter for the group which was ok. I ordered chicken pesto pasta for... More

We've been back to Franco's with the family mainly because it is excellent food and will cater for our party of ten with children and their likes/dislikes. Our booking was for a Sunday at 6.00pm (the restaurant finishes at 8.00pm on a Sunday). I think because it was really busy and because we were a large party, the service was... More

Went to Franco's tonight for a birthday meal. The food was absolutely gorgeous and everyone enjoyed what they had ordered. The night was made by the staff, they couldn't be any friendlier and were so attentive and playful with our toddlers. It's little things like that which make you want to keep going back!

We try to dine here every time I come home, the food is fresh and tasty. The owner often walks around and chats to you. He ensures your visit is an enjoyable one.

We have eaten at Franco's twice. We only found the establishment following a meeting at offices on the Business Park. The staff are very welcoming. The decor is modern & warm. On both occasions we just had a main course, not aware on our first visit that you are given complimentary olives, breads and dips as an appetiser. The menu... More
