Description: REGIONAL FINALIST FOR THE NATIONAL FISH & CHIP AWARDS - that means that we're in the top 3 fish and chip shops covering Cornwall, Devon & Dorset.... Wow!!! Also voted Local's Best Fish & Chips!!! All food is cooked to order and served both hot and fresh. Offering fish, burgers, pies etc to eat in or take away. Inexpensive food, yet still delicious, so you can keep coming without worrying about the cost! Conveniently located behind Babbacombe Downs with car park close by. Been established for over 30 years. GLUTEN FREE BATTER OPTION AVAILABLE 5PM TO 9PM ON MON & TUE (SORRY NOT BANK HOLIDAYS).

May I firstly point out that children are welcome at Drakes. I believe you are the gentlemen who came into the shop this past Saturday with 4 children and an open bottle of beer which you put on the counter while you placed your order. We did let you know that you couldn't have an open bottle of beer in the shop and would you please take it outside. Then we cooked your food. We didn't speak to you about your children so find your comments rather hurtful and definitely untrue. Its a shame when this forum is used to tell mistruths.

I have been visiting this place for about 18 months now - the food is always excellent and the staff friendly. Take a tip - if you can spare the time always get them to cook fresh for you

Excellent fish and chips. Nice kids meals too although could have healthier drinks for kids. Prices appeared lower than the nearby shop for eating in.
