The restaurant is a little difficult to find and parking is even harder. The restaurant itself could do with some tlc and new chairs. But aside from that the staff are very friendly and the food fantastic. I started with the Tiger Pawns. They were cooked perfectly and very tasty. My main was a pasta and chill dish. Again cook...

We went to Franks for my daughters 13th birthday and what a wonderful meal we had. Pizzas, pasta and chickens dishes were all beautifully prepared and delicious. The price was very reasonable and the staff were also very friendly. They even presented my daughters cakes and sang happy birthday which was an amazing addition to the end of the meal.... More

Went to Franks on a friend's recommendation and was not disappointed. The garlic pizza I had as a starter was excellent. My main course was penne arrabiatta and my wife had the swordfish which she thought was excellent. Our waitress was really lovely and informative. As the previous reviewer said, the chairs could do with a bit of extra padding.... More

Bit of a rush and but managed to get in 10 mins before official opening on Sunday evening. Lovely pizzas :) The best in the area. Authentic wood burning pizza oven gives the pizzas the best flavour! Hopefully next visit we will have a longer time for more treats and drinks :) Service was great as well which enabled my... More

Pizzas are the best pizzas in the UK. I come here at least once a month and I drive into town to get my takeaway pizzas from here. The restaurant is authentic and popular with locals because of its old fashioned, traditional ways. Great family that run the restaurant... you feel like one if their own when eating here. Book...
