Franco’s is not just a Barber shop, it’s an institution! I have been going to Franco’s for about 13 years and I always look forward to making the trip!
Whilst it’s obviously somewhere to get your hair cut, you always feel that the cut is the side order as the main event is the chat. It’s such a refreshing thing to have the whole place joining in with conversations/jokes/stories that you feel that your making friends with complete strangers who you may never see again but always wish well on their way!
The cuts are always good quality and the boys are never afraid to offer a creative suggestion or two. With the early starts offering free coffee and the late finishes on some nights, The guys have really designed an establishment which caters for all and is always busy. But any waiting time flies by and when you leave you look forward to the next time you visit.

Best barbers in Bristol bar none. I have been going to Franco’s for about 7 years. The guys treat all their customers like old friends (I moved out of the area for 4 years and when I went back in Franco greeted me by name – amazing!) and the atmosphere is welcoming fun and lively. Of course, if goes without saying that the haircuts are first class. I would never go anywhere else!

By far the best barbers in bristol and beyond! Its definitely a case of ‘wanting’ a haircut as oppose to ‘needing’ a haircut since I discovered this place! The late night opening really helps as I travel a fair few miles after work to visit…. I would recommend Franco’s to anyone wanting a decent cut and a good chin wag! cheers lads!
