This is known as a seafood restaurant, but I the steaks there are great, highly recommended. The service is friendly, the atmosphere relaxed and prices are very reasonable.

Disappointed!! My wife was very excited to take me to Frank's having heard good things. We'd organised a baby sitter so we were in for a relaxing night out. Arrived at Frank's just after 20:00. Drinks and food order was taken at the same time. Order a red wine, deep fried brie and squid and breads. Food probably arrived 4... More

Went for a meal on a weekday evening in December to celebrate both mine and my husbands birthday. We don't get to go out without the children very often so we wanted to take our time but we were hounded for our order and rushed through the meal. We asked if we could have some more time between starter and... More

Very impressed by the smooth organisation for our dinner booking for a party of 16 guests. We were happy to pre-order from a special Xmas menu, and we had exclusive use of an upstairs room which made the evening relaxing when we got a bit noisy! The young serving staff were all very helpful and pleasant. Food was lovely, my... More

This Restaurant is great and they do mussels in a big way. The mussels are served with bread or you can have chips. They are extremely good. The menu is excellent with a good choice. It is owned by a father and son, both called Frank. They are extremely pleasant and often go round the tables to make sure that... More

This is mine and my partners third time eating here and every time it has met our expectations. The food is of a high quality as well as the service . Even though we have only eaten here three times the waitresses always remember us especially the bubbly blonde girl (young Frank's girlfriend as she put it to us) .... More
