we were on the way in for our Friday lunch fish and chips and it started to rain so we went into the restaurant for the first time. good decision. very friendly waitress, very generous portion of good quality fish and chips with fresh bread and warm tea. it was not expensive either. just how it should be. all good.

went on a recommendation and wasn't disappointed and the bonus that the salt and vinegar was on the counter to put on the chips yourself was a nice touch.

Visited today with my aged mother for a rare lunch treat. Service was excellent with bread and butter brought almost immediately and order taken quickly. We both ordered fish and chips. The order arrived quickly (perhaps too quickly?) and we both thought the fish looked as if it had been re-cooked. The taste seemed to confirm our suspicions as it... More

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!

After listening to the Hornblower we set off to find a chippy/ This one is close to the Market Place just tucked out of sight but we saw it was open and had takeaway chips for two. Well cooked chips, friendly service and good value. Just what you need on a cold night. They have a restaurant as well as... More
