    Francesca's is my go to venue for a fun hang. Trivia on Thursday is a hoot. The cocktails (and mocktails!) are fire! Such a good venue to gather some mates and let your hair down. Killer

    Booked for lunch and arrived being told no pizza until after 3:30…. The rest of the menu is pretty lacklustre… ended up having a few drinks and going somewhere else for food. We were also sat in the dark back corner with no vibe.

    We had an outside booking for 6 @9pm - myself and my friends honestly had such a fun time. Considering it was the first night out of lockdown - all staff were so, super friendly and catered to all our needs. Drinks were delicious also! Overall such a fun night and great experience - will definitely be back! Highly highly recommend! Thanks so much Frannies!
