Description: Do you remember how good Fish & Chips used to taste? Well they still do - here! The same family has been serving Fish & Chips in this shop since 1909 - It is a Somerst Institution! AND you can have Wine, Beer or Cider with your Chips as they have a licence, AND you can sit down and eat it there in the shop, as its also a waited service restaurant! (booking highly advised for Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays!) We are probably the oldest established fish and chip restaurant in the UK that has remained in the family through out its existence, as well as being the oldest established business in Glastonbury. We have the finest quality cod, haddock and plaice available, delivered daily from British ports, not to mention tons of Cambridgeshire potatoes prepared on site throughtout the year. Apart from our takeaway section, we have a maximum seating capacity of 82, including 12 in our courtyard area. We are also noted for our home-made fish cakes prepared on the premises every day. For the carnivore, pork faggots which are made especially for us by a local butcher. We have sausages and a selection of pasties and pies by a renowned producer, and a selection of chicken choices - Stacking Burgers, Jacket Potatoes and various Meat free options. We have a massive Restaurant menu that has various best sellers, lighter meals, kids choices, sharers, starters and lots of extras! We have a drinks licence and offer a modest selection of favourite wines, draught and bottled beers and local ciders such as Wilkins farmhouse cider & Hecks farmhouse cider.

Every time we visit Glastonbury, we go to Knights. My Nan went to St Benedict's school with Joyce?? Knight and told me for years about the legendary fish and chips Joyce's dad used to make.

I've been to Glastonbury several times. Every visit I have to visit Knights. It's a little slice of history. And the best fish restaurant between here and Yorkshire, and the East coast.

We recently had a day trip to Glastonbury. Feeling rather peckish at lunchtime we followed the aroma of fish and chips to Northload Street. We saw this very pretty quaint little shop that was very inviting. We ordered plaice and chips and some ginger beer. The staff were very warm and friendly and the food was very good. I would recommend a visit if you go to Glastonbury for a visit. Good value for money, nice freshly cooked fish and chips most enjoyable.

The notice on the window claims that it's won several awards, and I can see why. Very good quality fish and chips. They don't have an extensive menu beyond that, but what they do, they do very well. I aim to eat here at least once every trip.

We saw the sign on the roadside advertising Knights award winning fish and chips and thought yes we've heard it all before.We decided to give it a go anyway and were pleasantly surprised as it is a really nice fish shop where you may sit indoors if wished.The food was hot,delicious and plenty variety to choose from.We have been back countless times since when in the area.
