Brilliant place
Some of these descriptions are just ridiculous. why would someone go mad at someone for asking for ice? i work in Frankies, and to be honest i find it funny how you can sit there and say how the owner is rude, she is a professional, hard working woman, who clearly is doing a good job as the bar has been in business over 10 years. I love working in Frankies, its fun and the service is always of a high standard and done quickly. None of the bar staff are rude. Lovely little wine bar!

Like the previous poster
I Had a similar run in with this woman.
My girlfriend asked for some more ice.
not only did she go mental on her
she flipped and started shouting at me.
And i hadn't had a very nice day at work and was feeling tired i just burst into tears
i will never ever go back she is a bully.

A lot more welcoming venues around!
Live locally to this venue & have had many good nights there. A friend of mine had experienced the surly female owner & vowed never to return, but i hadn't until last night. My girlfriend & i had been enjoying the football & decided to continue the celebrations at Frankies, it was slightly late about 11.50 but upon entering the bar which was in full swing the barmaid & owner glared at us & told us in no uncertain terms that the bar was shut. Fair enough but we thought we would stay & have a couple of dances, well this must have incurred the wrath of our not so friendly 'host' who upon spotting us literally climbed over the bar & told us to leave . We had to walk out through a mass of people as though we were naughty schoolchildren! Quite humiliating, therefore i will not give her another penny of my hard earned cash & will find a different venue in future where my custom is appreciated. Frank-ly no thank you!

Dave, considering I know the owner I can safely tell you that they wouldn't spend their time gushing about Frankie's cause they know they don't have to. The bar does more then well enough and they don't have to convince people to come back cause they do without convincing, they know what a quality bar it is. And to be honest why go to a bar in Romford where it's full of drunk teens when you can go to a place with a lively atmosphere that never has trouble? If you didn't have a goo time fair enough don't go back but please don't insult the people who work there and the owner by suggesting they even need to be fake about Frankie's and the kind of place it is.

Not a member of staff or a manager, just a regular guy. Not a gushing fake comment either. Not asking people to come back either. Just a comment that is what this is for. Bad experience then. Thats ok we all have them! I dont go in of a friday or saturday, i like the quiet life.

Interesting comments
As interesting as it is to read the owner or possibly the staff of a winebar write such gushing obviously fake reviews, my advice is to spend their time going on a customer service course if they really want people to come back. Until that happens I suggest people go to Romford

I go to Frankies, but could never understand why it didn't open during the day. Well to my suprise, they now do and they are doing food. I popped in, they had only been open for a week, had a bite to eat, it was great and cooked fresh, no packet stuff. Going to go back.

atmosphere brilliant
I went to Frankies for the first time last week and had a brilliant time! the music is great with a mixture of motown, soul, and up to date stuff. The staff were so polite and friendly and looked like they were having a great time themselves, service was quick too. I would definately recommend this place to everyone. The drinks arent over priced for a wine bar, if you want cheap drinks, go to a whetherspoons spit and sawdust pub. i didnt see the woman that owns it but i did see a guy with long hair, so perhaps the other reader is right... she doesnt suffer tolerate fools!

Too crowded
Every time I've been there it has been overcrowded. The staff have been slow and rude. Certainly wouldnt reccomend anyone to go there

confused by last comment?
I have been there on several occasions and have never encountered any rudeness by staff or management. The lady that owns Frankies, does not tolerate fools. Perhaps the answer is in the complaint?

Ok if you like narrow minded.
I went to Frankies on a couple of occassions despite the small size and the slightly higher prices than others nearby. However I stopped after the owner accosted me for having long hair. Which apparently constituted a health hazard when it touched the bar when I leant against it. The woman was extremely rude and now I tell everyone not to go.

Clean, Smart place for a high street wine bar.
This is a lovely little wine bar, that has nice people.
It can get a bit too over crowded after about nine on a friday and Saturday night, but this is by no means a reason not to go in there. During the week it is a great little place to take the wife/ girlfriend/boyfriend, or all three.
Clean, tidy, great staff and a freindly atmosphere. All in all a good place to go.
