No fancy trimmings here. They do not take credit or debit cards - so cash or cheque!! BUT get really great battered fish, lovely chips and bread and butter and pot of tea. Special rates for pensioners also.

My mum and I had the fish and chips with mushy peas which was gorgeous; the batter was so light and the chips and mushy peas were delicious. I had he children's fish which was a perfect size for a lighter... More

We called into Drakes for a warm on a cold day and a chip butty, but when the head waitress came along and was so nice and helpful with the menu and offers we couldn't help but take advantage of it. We had a starter and a lovely fish and chips with mushy peas. The peas were just right and... More

Popped I in a. chilly afternoon.Friendly prompt service, and was shown to a table straight away. We found it clean and very resonably priced. Friendly staff means we would use Drakes again and recommend to our friends.

We regularly visit Drakes at Knaresborough. These Fish & Chips take some beating and are consistently excellent. Having visited many Fish Restaurants in Yorkshire, this still remains the outstanding one for quality of fish and the great chips. As well as this, the staff are friendly and helpful making every visit always a pleasure.
