How Do I Order From Drakes?

Alternatively, our takeaway is now open, so please just pop in (like everyone used to do!) and order your food.
How do I get a delivery?
You can use our link to our ordering app and we’ll be able to deliver to you (very locally within a mile)
It won’t let me pre order?
No, it only lets you order for today
Nobody is answering your phone?
Sorry about that, no very sorry about that but we are a small team here at Drakes and we cannot cope with all 3 delivery tablets, cooking, packaging, delivering and operating phone orders at the same time, so we have had to stop answering the phone
When are best times to order?
Well, busy times are 6.00pm to 7.30pm so outside of those hours will mean a quicker delivery, last orders are just before 8.00 pm and most days we begin taking orders by 12.00 noon.
Can I phone and pay for my order?
Sorry not at the moment.
“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. 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.
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.
In the present uncertain circumstances we have made the decision to temporarily close the Restaurant/Eat In area of Drakes to safeguard our customers and members of staff. We hope that this virus will soon be a thing of the past, and therefore have not removed the menu from this website.

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!
Although Drakes no longer offers a gluten free batter option we are able to recommend the Naked fish which can be cooked with rice instead of chips.
