Takes a lot for me to be bothered to complain however our experience of a Drakes take away this evening has left me annoyed. My partner went in and ordered. When the food was being wrapped she mentioned she'd asked for two battered sausages. The young lad behind serving said ' oh well they will be a while if you... More

This was so good. Far, far superior to anything near where we live. Ultra fresh fish, crispy batter, non greasy. I had the jumbo haddock and chips £11.50 all mains come with pot of tea & bread & butter. Service was a touch slow (but that's being picky) but friendly enough. 5 stars isn't enough 😃

Prices nominal and atmosphere was good to just relax with your partner and enjoy the meal and ambience. Staff friendly and helpful. What more could one ask for? Definitely recommend this... More

Dropped in on a whim, not particularly busy considering it was a Friday evening. Staff all very courteous but they looked liked there uniforms needed a good wash. The chips were ok but the fish covered with far to much batter, I did eventually find the fish after chipping most of the batter off, mushy peas ok but Luke warm.... More

I visited Drakes Fish Restaurant last week and thoroughly enjoyed my meal as it was hot and fresh from the pan. It was served by a lovely young woman and the staff were all courteous and helpful. Drakes is a fish restaurant I visit from time to time as I am local.

It's great to have a local Fish and Chip cafe in the centre of town. I often go to the Ripon cafe. Always enjoy the food. Speedy Service and wonderfully hot. Would like to have some reading matter available. I am often on my own.
