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

The service is some of the best I have had anywhere. The staff are always on the ball and look to help customers. No standing around wondering if you are going to get served they bring multi tasking to a new level. Mainly we go for a drink but they do serve food. The wine selection is very good and... More

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*

Already been to Franklyn's last year, came back again in October 2016 and was really pleased to see that the original good standards had not slipped. 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

Until Franklyns came along I wouldn't drink in Heswall. Good drink selection, exceptional staff and a great vibe... especially when it's busy

My friend and I had lunch here on Tuesday 27 September. She had the pulled pork burger and said it was the best she had ever had. We later learned that the chef was named Conor. He did a fabulous work on both our meals. His hard work has not gone unappreciated. Our waiter was George, who was friendly and... More

A lovely restaurant and bar, with friendly helpful staff. The cocktails are delicious, something for everyone and are two for one between 4.00 to 7.00 which makes them good value. My only complaint is that they have stopped serving the "lemon meringue " cocktail which was to die for, but on the up side, I now have a new favourite.... More

We drink here regularly, the cocktails are really good and the service is good with friendly staff. Never had food but it looks good. Front doors open up in the summer to create a nice terrace out on. Great place would highly recommend

Thank Dudnolad
