Love the fish, batter always crispy. Travels well all the way back to West Hoe. Huge portions & southern fried chicken is lush too. Always busy in there which is a good sign but speedy & friendly service.

Quite a regular to this chippie and we've never been disappointed, the fish is lovely and do recommend the Kebabs. Can get very busy but lots of staff working hard and it's well worth the wait.

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.
