Afternoon lunch

This is the second time we have had fish and chips at Drakes and in fact this time they were a lot better than the first! The batter on the fish was lovely and crisp and the chips were just fab! We took my elderly mother out for lunch and she had the OAP special which was good value for... read more

I have visited this restaurant twice over the last couple of months and have found it to be excellent in every way. Food is beautiful (and hot), service is excellent and you can't beat it for value. A very pleasant experience all round.

Visited this restaurant yesterday with my family. We all had fish and chips that were absolutely superb! I particularly loved the crispy yet soft batter on the fish. Service was friendly and quick. Good value for money and portion sizes were plentiful. My only grumble was that the toilets were upstairs which meant that my elderly mother was unable to... More

We had the senior meal of fish and chips tea bread and butter which was excellent. Staff were very friendly, cash is required to settle the bill as there are no card facilities.

Went here whilst on a family holiday and so an array of ages. We used the restaurant and received a lovely, friendly service. More importantly, we received a lovely, perfectly cooked & fluffy fish with chips soft on the inside with a crunch. Mushy peas, bread and butter and proper tea all at a reasonable price. What more do you... More

Having just recently visited Drakes on the Sunday 14th June my husband and I - just wanted to say what tasty fish and chips they are here! We usually have a takeaway here but the weather wasn't very good that day so we decided to eat in the restaurant, warm welcome, very comfortable. Quick service! All the food was cooked... More

Not sure where to eat, and not wanting to leave town, we pottered about and found Drakes. This is a large fish and chip restaurant next door to the chip shop of the same name. Staff were courteous and made us welcome. The menu wasn't just a case of chips with everything and there were veggie options too. The portions... More
