“Yummy fish & chippys”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

We stopped of here for our supper before going on to the theatre at Babbacombe the staff was very nice and helpfull and the food was cooked well but we thought that it was small portions for the money we spent but would use again when passing as we live local but would use as a take away as we notice the portions are a little bigger the good side is you dont have to queue.

“Could be better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We have eaten at Drakes before and have always found it better than Hanbury's. But today - 1st September - the food was disappointing. The chips were soft rather than crispy and the fish was tasteless. We had haddock and plaice and there was not much to chose between them. We appreciated the fact that they were open on Sunday - Hanbury's is closed - but there quality of the food could be greatly improved with a bit more care about how it is cooked and presented.

“Brilliant customer service!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

This is my local fish and chip shop and has consistently great food but I have noticed criticism of the staff on here so I wanted to share my experience. Tonight when I was about to get my fish and chips I thought the fish didn't look quiet up to the usual size and high standard, so I mentioned it and without hesitation they offered to cook me another piece. I happily excepted this and the cook showed me the new piece of fish which was absolutely delicious. The temperature in the shop was incredibly hot but they were still polite and courteous. I would recommend this chip shop to anyone and for goodness sake, if you are not happy with something, they will do their best to fix it, after all they are not mind-readers!
