Massive portions, and the kids portions would fill up an adult, very tasty, and not soggy at all. 🙂

My son and I ordered traditional cod and chips and mushy peas. Fish was nice chips where undercooked and mushy peas where tasteless . First time I've tried this place won't bother again. Not cheap and poor quality.

There's a great choice of menu to choose from and to please all with good sized portions for your money. Be prepared to wait a little bit but well worth it as lots of food cooked to order.

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.
