“Very decent fish and chips”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Good, friendly service, good fish and chips and reasonable prices. All in all, you couldn't expect much more, especially for the price and considering the distance from the coast.

“Second best in Knaresborough”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Pleasant restaurant to enjoy your fish and chips when eating in. Friendly and helpful staff. Quality of haddock and batter varies a lot. I've had some lovely fish here, but also some very watery fish and lumpy batter.

It's a pity that this otherwise pleasant restaurant don't "up their act" a little and concentrate on achieving a better standard similar to Aragon Fisheries.

“Decent fish and chips in the Market Square.”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

A fish and chip outlet where you can eat in or take away, we chose the latter. We had haddock and chips which was freshly cooked plus curry sauce and mushy peas. All very nice.

“Lovely fish and chips”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Every time we come to Knaresborough we come to Drakes. Haddock and chips has been delicious without fail. There are not enough staff though and you can see a bossy sign addressed to staff hanging on a noticeboard. The staff work their socks off but would suggest management need to support them. Definitely recommend the food but they need to take cards and put a working lock on the ladies loo!
