Popped in for lunch, waited to order for 15 mins then left unnoticed by staff. Can't comment on the food as we did not get that far. Great location, squandered by bad service (under staffing?).

We went to Franklins for lunch on Friday. My husband had cod and chips and i had the burger. Both were very tasty and good value at about £7 a head. They were very busy and warned us that we might have to wait, but the food came in about 20 minutes and as we were sat outside in the sun it did'nt really matter. The service was excellent and the staff were lovely. Will be visiting again very soon.

was staying at Starcross on holiday, got the ferry across to Exmouth. After a nice walk round town, decided to go in Franklins for lunch. First choice mussells, not available, bad start! Made alternative choice and waited, and waited. After 45 minutes asked staff to check our order- it had not been passed to kitchen. We were told it would be out in 10 minutes, it took 20. Was it worth the wait-no. There appeared to be no one in overall charge. A lot of flirting was going on between a waitress and a chap behind the bar. No offer of free drinks for the hours delay in food. Not impressed, would not go again.

The atmosphere & location of Franklin's is great as was the service. The food is ok but nothing special.
