Excellent fish and chips as it has been since I was a child and “Granny Knight” used to serve them in real newspaper! Always consistent and the home made fish cakes and West Country Faggots are as I remember 50 years ago.

Not over priced. Large portions and friendly staff. We sat in and ate. Fish was tasty. Small toilets up the stairs. One male one female. Would definitely eat here again.

I reviewed Knights a couple of years ago. I wasn't impressed, to put it mildly. Back in Glastonbury so I thought I'd take another look. Things are, I'm afraid, still pretty poor. It wasn't a particularly busy night, although there were a few customers at...More

My wife and I ate her last Thursday evening and dined on delightful Gluten free Cod, Chips, Mushy peas and Onion rings well worth the drive from Bridgwater. Recommended for Coeliacs we will return.

Excellent fish and chips and other foods it says something when a place has been open for so many generations of the same family. Food can be eaten in the restaurant, or taken away.

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.
