Superb food and service at a great price. Top Marks.
Enjoyed our Sunday roast; nice relaxing atmosphere and service! I like that dogs can come, too!
Excellent food and great service. And nice cosy restaurant and bar
Food was amazing and we had a little table in the beer garden in the sunshine! Service and people were great too!
Good menu, good service, good food ! I had the delicious soup to start , my friends had the smoked salmon and scotch egg respectively - all great! Then I had the beer battered fish, friends had the Drake burger ( huge ! ) and the linguine. All the food was very tasty. Only wee complaint was the severe lack of prawns in the linguine. However would certainly recommend The Drake if looking for a relaxed meal
my partner & i had a superb sunday roast here - he had chicken while i had beef, and both were excellent! took our little pup along & they could not have been more accommodating, despite her endless enthusiasm for tearing up & down the restaurant! the friendliest staff & nice laid back vibe. will definitely be back soon!
I chose the Drake because of the great experience I have had in the past and wanted somewhere for a family pre Christmas get together before my husband and I left for Australia. Decided to go for the Sunday roast as they are legendary. Roasts advertised on the website as on the menu from 1-9 on Sundays. Arrived to a cold and frankly unchristmassy venue. Ordered drinks - as designated driver I ordered fresh orange and lemonade. Only for the waitress to return and say there was no lemonade (there is a supermarket across the road! surely they could have bought a few bottles???). drinks delivered and we were asked if we would pay for them then and there - had already said we were waiting for other guests to arrive and we would decide if we would eat from the regular menu. Gave our order for food. I ordered fillet steak instead. Waitress returned to say there was no steak! Meanwhile my husband went to the fire to put coal and wood on it as it was very low - the place was freezing - only for the (I suppose) duty manager to rush up and demand that he stop what he was doing as the fire was too smoky! He and a member of staff then had a rather uncomfortable exchange and he proceeded to bang chairs around! Having cancelled the food order (immediately on being told there was no steak) we decided enough was enough and made to leave. The 'duty manager' came up and apologised. When I suggested they make their website clearer to reflect the potential lack of availability of said roast he became very defensive said the website did not state they were available 1 - 9. His attitude was very poor to say the least. Thankfully the waitress was very good and extremely apologetic. I have never had to write such a negative review of anywhere - never mind somewhere I thought had an excellent reputation. Never again - ruined what should have been a lovely family gathering.
I had a wonderful time during my visit to The Drake. The staff were nice and friendly and the food was delicious. The atmospher was pleasant.
The Drake is always a great night out. Food was lovely and fun atmosphere. We were there for the music night which was good fun.
Food was lovely as always and service was good. It was quite busy so food was a bit slow coming out but it was delicious once we got it. My booking didn't go through to the restaurant despite getting conformation email but they were still able to find us a space so it was fine.
