I came with my friends for a night out last week. Firstly we ordered some food (which was extremely over priced considering the portion size). The waitress who served us was rude and snotty and the wait for the food was awful. Then I went to the toilet to find sick all over one of them which had not been... More

Great cocktails made quickly by the bar staff. We come here a few nights a month and always have a good time. Just wish there was more seating!

Have been numerous times over the holidays and the service is excellent. The bar staff are very chatty and friendly esp George and Mia. The table service makes going out with friends so much more chatty as you don't leave your friends to get more drinks. The 241 cocktails are also good value. Thanks guys

Firstly I think it's safe to say that Franklyns is the best establishment in Heswall for both casual drinks and quick eats. I've been visiting once/twice a month for a number of years now and never had a bad experience. 5*

The staff are attentive and friendly, without being overbearing, food is nice, interesting menu with a wide range of choices and the drinks, be they alcoholic or not, are always good quality. In summary,... More
