My husband and I visited for lunch on Saturday on a day out to Knaresborough. My husband had the fish and chips which he really enjoyed ,I had poached fish and this again was very good. The staff, and there were quite a few,were young and very pleasant.My question though is why someone did not think to clean the carpet... More

We visited Drake's last year and really enjoyed the traditional fish & chips, tea, bread and butter, so this year we decided to do the same. Again the quality of food was excellent, and we were served by pleasant, attentive staff. Drakes cook their fish and chips in the traditional beef dripping - which makes a world of difference to...

We visited Knaresborough last week and was pleased to hear that Drakes had a fish restaurant here as we had recently visited the one in York, the fish & chips were excellent and for the money it was great value. Will definitely visit again when in area.

Had a lovely meal here. I had the special of the day Lemon Sole & hubby had the Haddock, both of which were excellent ( we asked for very lightly battered fish & it was served to perfection). Restaurant very clean, all the staff very friendly, & it was good value for money. Recommend you go & try it out!

Senior special included a manager and staff who provided good service, a good sized battered haddock bread and butter and a pot of tea for under 6 QUID. conveniently located close to short stay car park and clean and comfortable. Not the highlight of our trip to Knaresborough but filled the gap for lunch. Would return.

Good, friendly service, good fish and chips and reasonable prices. All in all, you couldn't expect much more, especially for the price and considering the distance from the coast.

Pleasant restaurant to enjoy your fish and chips when eating in. Friendly and helpful staff. Quality of haddock and batter varies a lot. I've had some lovely fish here, but also some very watery fish and lumpy batter. It's a pity that this otherwise pleasant restaurant don't "up their act" a little and concentrate on achieving a better standard similar... More
