I'm writing this in the restaurant, having had the best posh fish sandwich ever. Most places will put in fish goujons, Drake's put in a proper battered fish. Not only that, the waitress went to a local bakery to buy a white roll when the...ciabatta roll on the menu wasn't available and I mentioned that I really don't like granary (the offered replacement). My mum had the senior haddock and chips and they replaced the included tea for coffee. The side of onion rings were also excellent. We will most definitely be back, next time that we are in York.More

Best haddock and chips I’ve ever had. Been to Drake’s twice and haven’t been disappointed. It’s our new favourite place to eat! Staff are so kind and attentive. Honestly couldn’t fault it except from the fact that you can’t tip on card - it goes...to the ownerMore

After being on a walking tour on a chilly Saturday evening, we called in and are really glad that we did. We both agreed that the haddock and chips was possibly the best we’d ever tasted, it was piping hot and was obviously cooked to...order. I decided to give the gravy a try, as it’s not something I’d tried on fish and chips before and, I still haven’t! I decided against it but used it as a dip and it was delicious. The restaurant itself was very cozy and the young waitress was very friendly. If you’re after a cheapish meal, I’d thoroughly recommend DrakesMore

Everything about this place was excellent. The fish and chips were superb; the room was pleasant and the service was very good. Just one word of warning; the fish is haddock - there's no cod on the menu. That didn't bother us as the haddock...was delicious - perfectly cooked.More

Wow, my group of four family members booked a table to eat in, the fish was ultra fresh and tasty, the batter deliciously light and crispy, and the service at table was second to none by Nicky, who engaged with us in a wonderfully in...an friendly and light hearted way. First class food, first class service, so thank you to whoever cooked our fish and chips, and especially to Nicky who made our evening. To top it all, you get a cup of tea with the meal! Great and traditional.More

Everything you could want from a chippy tea. Cooked to perfection. Curry sauce/gravy spot-on. And a cup of char on the side.

One of the better fish and chips we have had in the UK. Not too greasy. Portion was considered small for a large haddock and the price though.

Beautiful fish and chips, just what was needed at the end of a busy day. We were first drawn by the name Drake, the same as my wife's maiden name and perhaps like her, lineage through Sir Francis Drake to the French Military Administrators who...came over in the Norman Invasion.More
