Went on Saturday and had what can only be described as a whale & chips. Perfectly cooked and well presented in the restaurant area. Very tasty and decent value for money. Great to have proper fish n chips again. Well done.

Great fish and chips in this fish and chip restaurant. We have both sat in and taken away our food. Both are great options. Very crispy batter and the chips are delicious. The service was quick. We highly recommend this restaurant to others.

Been here a few times for take away fish and chips, each time the chips have been good. The fish, however at best has been average.

Drakes offers both table service and take away fish and chips. Spotlessley clean and happy friendly staff. Fish and chips were both freshly fried - hot and crispy. Reasonably priced and good sized portions.

Whilst my grandson has been visiting the UK every time we have been out and about he wanted "proper fish and chips". Hence, we have sampled a few over the past 5 months.
