Best Fish & Chips in town.

For many years Drakes, part of a chain of shops, has offered the best Fish & Chips in Knaresborough. The quality is excellent both in the takeaway and the restaurant and prices are fairly average.

The fish and chip restaurant is excellent, customer care is paramount. The staff are excellent, smart and friendly, you are made to feel welcome. The fish and chips are delicious and any requests you might have as to how you like your fish cooked they are only too happy to oblige.

The fish and chips were over-cooked but the steak pie someone else had looked good. the mushy peas were delicious. Good size meals.

We always get our takeaway fish and chips here when we are visiting for the Great Yorkshire show . It is always nicely busy so everything is cooked fresh . Fish was lovely with a crisp but not hard batter and real hand cut chips . Superb

We had the Senior Citizens meal and as well as being good value, everything about the food was ideal, the quantity, the batter on the fish, golden, the chips were not hard as some you get, but cooked well, and we did not have long to wait. Thank You.
