Living in Bermuda, you rarely have an urgent need for F&C and if you do - the F&C experience leaves you sorely disappointed. So on a trip back to Ripon no healthy offerings from Booths were good enough - we needed F&C - pronto. The embraceable aromas from Drakes drew us in like a sirens song sapping our health hearts...

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.
