Always use Drakes when In York. The Fish and Chips have never disappointed. Service is very good and your not waiting long. When the Fish and Chips arrive they are always red hot. Good choice of cold drinks and Tea but they do not serve Coffee. Would highly recommend if you want a quick hot delicious plate of Fish and Chips.

Really enjoyed my meal here, tasty soup and proper fish and chips. A quirky restaurant at the back of a chippy. Staff really friendly and a great relaxed dining experience.

The first evening of our holiday in York. We were able to book on line so that we could have proper Yorkshire fish and chips the same evening. We were not disappointed with the choice, quality, service and value. When we arrived my husband realised that it was the shop where he and his mates had takeaways following their nights out in the early 1970s! A trip down memory lane and the same quality he remembered. Thank you.

Have not visited for 2 years and was not disappointed. The dining area has had a lovely makeover. The food is still of a high standard. The fish and chips are the best we've ever had. The service was brilliant- everyone was very cheerful and friendly. Will definitely be going back.

We'd booked a table a few days earlier, but it didn't appear to be necessary for a Tuesday evening. The staff were very professional and extremely friendly.
The food we ordered (haddock and chips, and plaice, chips and peas) were top class, with wafer thin batter on the fish. Portions are generous to say the least. Drake's is definitely the place to go in York if you want an excellent fish dish and experience quality service and friendly staff.

We had booked a table but did not appear to be expected as nobody asked for our name or booking details. Fortunately the restaurant was not busy so there were tables available.
The restaurant specialises in fish and chips but now sells only haddock rather than cod. We were therefore rather disappointed.
That said ,when the haddock and chips arrived it was good quality and very tasty.

Fine if you are really hungry and have a large appetite. Portion sizes were massive and a bit off putting. Food tasted ok though!
