I bought a piece of fish this lunchtime (1pm 27 August 2014). The batter was very overcooked and dark brown. The fish was dry and chewy. I had two mouthfuls and had to take it back to the shop.

A party of us had been out for the day and wanted some where too have a good plate of Fish & Chips. We were not disappointed in chosing this Restaurant. The 6 of us all had a well served portion of Fish/Chips, with Tea/Bread/Butter. Very well presented, piping hot,good servings.Would certainly go back again.

Rather than eat in our hotel we decided to find a chippie and have a cheap but traditional supper. We both had fish and chips and sat in our car and ate them prior to going back to our hotel for a late night drink. The fish and the chips were so tasty and we were pleased we had taken... More

Arrived in Knaresborough just in time for lunch, five of us including the baby, after walking round looking for somewhere that had room for a buggy this place was actually the only place that had room (it was virtually empty) This should have told us something, but from the outside it looked clean and well run. We had to wait... More

I had the regular haddock and chips, the Mrs had sausage and chips which she was surprised to see come out not battered but it didn't specify it would be so no complaints! My fish was a little over battered but I chipped away and got some free 'scraps' really good chips not to greasy like some places. Service was... 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.
