DRAKES CHIPS ARE LEGENDARY…
“The local’s word for fish & chips!”
FISH & CHIP TAKEAWAY
Drakes was opened in the early 1990’s and the core menu has remained steadfast with unusual additions added over the years. Now fish such as Skate, Rock and Lemon Sole can be eaten as well as the traditional and amazingly popular North Atlantic Cod, Haddock and Plaice.
The large takeaway area regularly sees queues out the door and food is cooked to order keeping a light crispy batter. Our Eat-In will be opening again in the Spring of 2019 – so please keep your eyes on our website and facebook page
MSC certified fish is purchased in great quantity from trawlers by our appointed agent so we can offer the best quality product at very reasonable prices. Our potato supplier is just outside Newton Abbot and delivers twice a week so we have the freshest potatoes possible.
Generations of locals know these chips which are peeled and chipped on site daily and cooked freshly throughout the day to produce a slightly softer “chip-shop” chip, delicious with lashings of salt and our special non-brewed vinegar. Our homemade mushy peas are soaked and seasoned on site daily so they are green and fresh and delicious. A mildly Chinese curry sauce is unique to Drakes and make the chips taste wonderful.

WE CAN OFFER THE VERY BEST QUALITY PRODUCT AT VERY REASONABLE PRICES!
Using a light batter mix and cooking at high temperature gives the best results, and cooking to order means everyone leaves with the freshest of fish everytime. We have invested in a high speed oven so NAKED FISH is the new buzz word… fillets of fish lightly sprayed with olive oil and Italian herbs and baked for a couple of minutes in the miracle machine produces a light and moist alternative to batter – great for those on a gluten free diet or just being extra good!
As the owner is mildly gluten-intolerant a GLUTEN FREE BATTER option was introduced in 2012 on Tuesday evenings from 5pm to 9pm and is growing in popularity especially as shops in other towns are dropping this option because of the labour intensive work involved to ensure no cross-contamination. Bank Holiday Mondays are the exception when we are unable to offer this valuable additional service.
