We are visiting from Australia and having a weeks holiday in Newquay, Cornwall. Finally a fish and chip shop that doesn’t cook in lousy vegetable oil. This establishment only cooks in beef dripping and you can taste the difference.
We ordered cod and chips ( each) and portions were huge. They were fantastic fish and chips and proves the old fashioned ways are best. Large queue of at least 20 people yet our order was cooked fresh and served in 10 mins waiting time.
Fantastic place

I am a local and visit Francine's weekly. If you want the best of the food offered in the evening then go after 5, even though it opens at half 4.....the not used chips from the afternoon are reheated and offered first. Because the usual quality of food is incredible, this tacky trick is so noticeable. This is my only complaint.
The standard of service is impeccable....full praise to the front of house team who do a very professional job in a very busy environment. Most are young and it is good to see a work ethic so vibrant in this very busy business. the owners who appear to be in control at the back by the fryers should take note.....Us customers can see you and you all look like miserable sods!!
In all, Francines is a blessing to Newquay...it is our local chippy and i would recommend it to everyone.

Huge portions all freshly cooked , get one portion of chips for two people it’s more than enough. Queuing system works to perfection as you are given a ticket when you order? However you never have to wait more than a couple of mins

Placed an order over the phone and was ready to be picked up in 15 mins. The portions were large, curry sauce was amazing, chips weren't soggy and fish tasted fresh. Just what you want from a chippy

As it was our last night we decided to have fish and chips from here as it was only 5 mins away from the camp site we were staying at near watergate bay, I had a portion of fish bites (x6) and audra had scampi (x10) with a regular chips and boy the regular chips fed both of us with just one portion so glad I didn't get the large portion, superb fish bird cooked to perfection but bit of a wait as it was very busy but again worth it. Give it a try and see what you think
