Called here on 25th July as our usual fish and chip shop was closed. The portions were tiny compared to our usual chippy. Fish bites were not even bites, tiny miserable size and very few. Portion of chips was also terrible. Price was also more expensive. Will certainly not be returning here again. DO NOT RECOMMEND

Very busy and hot. Could do with air conditioning or at least some fans. The staff were friendly. We ordered the Senior citizens special which was a main meal with starter or desert.

Service was extremely poor due to the following reasons 1) Not sufficient staff. ( notice in window advertising for more staff) 2) Not good when waitress feels the need to spend time chatting rather than serving or acknowledging customers. 3) the restaurant needs an overall manager/manageress to take the staff to hand and to smarten them up. 4) fish dry...

We went to Drakes with our grandchildren on Friday teatime. It's comfy, family friendly, reasonably priced and serves delicious food including a good choice for the children. A special plus for us is that Drakes now serve Gluten Free fish and chips so, as Granddad is coeliac, that keeps everyone happy.

Lovely staff although feel they are overworked. A fish and chip shop serving poached haddock - fantastic. Food is delicious we returned the next evening and again enjoyed the haddock.
