We came over from Lancashire and decided to treat our daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons to supper at 6 pm (you are open until 8 pm). We have been coming to Drakes for about 20 years. In all this time we have always been treated with utmost courtesy and the food excellent. However, the lady who was on duty on... More

Lunch here is awesome, the portions are great and the fish is fried beautifully, nice light batter and a really nice piece of white fish. Nice pot of tea complimented with sliced bread just right for a "chip butty", excellent service throughout, a must visit if you are in Ripon.

Called in for a late fish and chip lunch on the go. Everything was cooked to order, sizable portions, friendly staff, nothing to fault really! Definitely worth seeking it out near the workhouse.

It's not fancy by any stretch of your imagination but the service & food is excellent if you like fish, chips, mushy peas, tea and bread...the lightest of spread butter! Ketchup Heinz!

Well cooked chips, friendly service and good value. Just what you need on a cold night. They have a restaurant as well as... More

The tradition of fish & chips, bread & butter & a pot of tea; wonderful. The way it was and excellent because of it. Simple food served in a friendly, old cafe. Very good fish & chips. Great mushy peas, not "minted", which is TV chef nonsense. The tea was good, as was the simple fishcake served to one of... More

This is a great little fish and chip shop with a restaurant to the side. All OAPs have the benefit of fish and chips with bread and a drink for the brilliant sum of £5.95-Worth getting old for! We were in a bit of a rush due to parking and the waitress was very helpful. Despite ordering a large fish... More
