Frank’s is an old-school caff where the tea is ridiculously strong and you can get a massive plate of pie and mash and lashings of gravy for less than a tenner. They have massive breakfasts and you can also grab a proper bacon and egg roll to take away. It’s a no-nonsense place that probably won’t make any healthy eating lists any time soon, but will put some meat on your bones and a grin on your face.
