The Drake receives a very healthy 4.2/5 from 5pm reviewers who highlight the quality of the food and the friendly staff:
‘Quality eatery. Decided to give this place a bash as I had passed it a few times and saw it advertised on 5pm. Best decision that was made all weekend as food and service were both first class. Will be back to try other items on the menu. Delicious!’ Rating 4.8/5
‘Really good. I’d forgotten how good The Drake is for a combination of good food, good drink, nice atmosphere and great staff. Goan curry was one of the best curries I’ve had in ages.’ Rating 4.4/5
