Great value for money

Visited Drakes for the first time today as a group of 14 and we all enjoyed our meals. The menu is very reasonably priced and the bread and butter and a drink included in the price of a main meal was a pleasant surprise. The fish was very tasty and the portions were generous for the price we paid.

my friend and I were surprised as pensioners we could have a choice of chips OR peas with our generous fish portion, it was therefore easy to share our portions and not feel overwhelmed. The food was fresh and delicious and more than enough for a very reasonable price. We will be back

Never visited Drakes before but the smell from outside enticed us in and very happy indeed that it did. Met by two lovely friendly, helpful young ladies who explained the special deals on offer as well as the main menu. We were offered Seniors meals which included bread and butter, haddock and chips, a dessert and top up tea and... More

First time to Drakes on the recommendation of my Son, who thinks they are the best he's ever had. We weren't disappointed, had a window table in the Sun. Staff were very good, Lovely fish and chips with tea and bread and butter, very enjoyable.

Greeted by a smiling and very pleasant waitress who took time to show us the best table for our needs. She also described our options as she brought the menus. The fish and chips arrived promptly and everything was piping hot. More importantly the fish was not greasy and the batter was light and crisp. Overall it was a very... More

Called on a very cold day, not many people about, we thought fish and chips would warms us up. Firm white fish with crispy batter, the chips were golden brown and fluffy inside, all washed down with a good cuppa. Will be going again.

One rainy day I was feeling peckish after a swim so went into knaresborough for a bite to eat. Found Drakes and decided to just have the chips and really wished I'd had a fish as well. The chips tasted just like chips use to taste, crispy, a bit of salt and made me a lover of fish and chips... More
