I reviewed Knights a couple of years ago. I wasn't impressed, to put it mildly. Back in Glastonbury so I thought I'd take another look. Things are, I'm afraid, still pretty poor. It wasn't a particularly busy night, although there were a few customers at...More

My wife and I ate her last Thursday evening and dined on delightful Gluten free Cod, Chips, Mushy peas and Onion rings well worth the drive from Bridgwater. Recommended for Coeliacs we will return.

Excellent fish and chips and other foods it says something when a place has been open for so many generations of the same family. Food can be eaten in the restaurant, or taken away.

I've had really mixed experiences of Knights. This time, the battered plaice was superb - lovely bit of fish, crisp and golden batter - but the chips were a big soggy and underwhelming. Quality really seems to depend on how busy they are and who's...More

Great chippy either for a takeaway or to sit down and enjoy a pint with your meal. You must go here if you visit Glastonbury

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.
