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.

Had a good lunch there, pastie, chips, mushy pease and tea.
Friendly efficient service and a building full of character.
Spot on and well needed after a walk on the tor.

Despite being waited on by someone with zero charisma, with zero drinks knowledge, and that got a simple fish and chip order wrong, the food was pretty good.. especially as you can have a beer with your nosh!!!!!!! :-) reasonably priced...

Visited on a Saturday evening, polite and quick service despite being busy. The food was well priced, served quickly and tasted absolutely delicious. Best fish and chip restaurant I've been too. Add in some local cider and you can't go wrong

Never disappoints this place! Been coming to Knights for years on end for takeaway and eating in on occasion and always come back for more. The staff are lovely and having the business kept within the family for all these years gives it that homely feel. The restaurant is lovely, with a wooden fire roaring away throughout the winter as well as a licenced bar selling local cider!

I've eaten at Knights on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. I'd confidently say it's a staple part of Glastonburys town centre and is known by everyone. The service is always top notch and friendly and the fish is the best I've had in the area. Highly recommend if you are in the area. They also promote other local companies along with their food, fore mostly Roger Wilkins Cider, whos farm was recently featured on Countryfile. The cider isn't catered to compliment Fish and Chips, but it just works fantastically. Always an enjoyable experience.
