Can get some amazing street food around York but a fish butty from Drakes is right up there with the best of them.

Young girl that was serving today was lovely however did try to overcharge me for a standard fish and chips but corrected herself before she took my money. They were frying to order and it did surprise me how quick the fryer managed to get...my fish out. Opened the fish and it was very very raw in the middle, cold translucent and slimy. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and took their offer of a new fish. This was also raw. The young lad probably panicked and tried to rectify the order asap but was equally raw. Really unpleasant experience. Was refunded in cash and not back on my card. It really does worry me how many customers were served raw fish this afternoon. I expect there will be a few poorly tummies.More

Brilliant service, amazing prices, unbelievable food! Cannot be beaten! Basically if heaven had a fish and chip shop, it'd be this one. The staff are always super polite, they pile high the chips and the onion rings, they even stock J20 AND cloudy lemonade! Not...to mention the way they swiftly manoeuvre behind that till, you'd think they were part of an F1 pit crew! Definitely worth a visit!More

Ordered the gluten free fish and chips for delivery and wow it was absolutely amazing. Will not go anywhere else for fish and chips now. Not sure if they offer gluten free battered sausage tho.

Its not easy being people facing these days but to keep calm dealing with the rudeness of deliveroo drivers, several with no concept of wearing a mask properly or waiting their turn, whilst still providing excellent friendly service to normal customers is a rare skill...which must be commended. The member of staff working on the counter for the last 2 Saturdays needs a pay rise and a medal. Our only reason for 4 not 5 stars is very soggy batter. We will however be back for more.More

First things first: the chips are superb. Tasty and perfectly cooked. The menu goes beyond standard chippy fare but straying too far. The dirty chips, for example, are incredible, but you can still get a great traditional chippy meal if that's what you're after. Ordered...for takeaway via Deliveroo. When I phoned up to amend my order they were very friendly and obliging - great service.More

I used to eat here regularly, and I could say it was one of the best! However, lately they started shrinking the portion sizes and serving a pathetic example of salad with fish and chips! Chips are also cut in a different way to traditional...chip shop chips!! So I think it’s the owners experimentation! I hope they change back soon!!More

Dear 1805SAM, As you are an employee of Mr Chippy (a fish and chip shop nearby), please refrain from writing vexatious reviews on our TripAdvisor page. We have not changed the way we cut our chips since Drake's was founded in 1984 and our portion...More
