This is a great place to catch up with friends over lunch. I ordered the mini platter which tasted great and wasn't too filling. Would definitely go back.

Had a family gathering at Franklin's and have to say the food and service was great. They catered for gluten free and ensured the right people got the right food. All in all a great night. Thank you.

My word the drinks are expensive. I keep being told that this is simply "because it is Exmouth", but even so. It gets hammered at the weekends, and with it being relatively small, it can get quite cramped, but the doorman keeps a count on how many are inside. Really nice place though.

We was on a day trip to Exmouth and after being dropped off in town on the train we wanted a drink! Franklins had seating outside available and looked good. It was!
