Never had a bad meal at francescas. Love it and go with family/kids/friends, no matter what they cater to everyone. Can get a bit loud on the weekends but it adds to the atmosphere.x

There was 8 of us that went for a meal. It was really nice. The staff were very busy as it was full. Although they were busy they were very nice. Food was lovely we all enjoyed our meals and puddings.

We turned up at half 7 on a Friday night with no reservation and were still greeted with smiles and were seated fairly quickly. It was very busy that night but that didn't stop the service from being fast and friendly. The food was delicious and filling, for around £35 my partner and I each had a starter, a main... More

Everything was really good, except that a lady who was bringing the drinks kept coming up with not enough glasses , it almost felt awkward to ask for additional glass for wine, but the main waitress was super friendly and food was good too and I'd say low prices

Nice meal in good company. Service was friendly and quick and the food was really very good. It's nice to eat in a restaurant where you can have a conversation some other local places serve superb food but the dining experience is spoiled by loud noise from diners reflected off hard walls and floors

A group of us called in on a Friday night. It was very busy and as we expected it would be an hour for a table. We stood outside deciding where we would go instead when the manager came out and said we could have a drink and wait next door for a table for 20 mins. We went to... More

We wanted a quick meal but we hadn't booked. The restaurant was very busy but they managed to find us a table. I ordered chicken with vegetables but it came with chips. I eventually got the vegetables when I had almost finished my meal. My husband had pizza which was very good value. I enjoyed my meal and would return.... More

First time visiting in a while. Took the kids along with us and we were impressed. All 4 of us fed and watered for just under £40. Bargain. Food was delicious too. Highly recommend.

Really busy on a weekday lunchtime. Good food and really reasonable. Meal for three with desserts and two rounds of drinks £40. Half pizza, half pasta a really good idea as saves lots of menu agonising! Would definitely come back if in the area.
