RIVERVIEW CHINESE RESTAURANT: CANTONESE CUISINE
Monday, September 8, 2008
After a full day of touring the countryside and sight-seeing, we ( Hans & I, Suet, Suvanki, Poons and Angiebabe) sure were getting hungry. We pulled into the lovely town of Knaresborough and spotted the RIVERVIEW Chinese Restaurant. So we went in, sat down and ordered our food. Hans had Sweet & Sour Chicken (7.60), I had Fried Chicken with Cashew Nuts ( 7.60) and we shared an Egg Fried Rice (2.40) and we both had lemonades ( 2.00). We received generous portions and all dishes were delicious.

DRAKES: TRADITIONAL FISH AND CHIPS
Drakes is a traditional fish and chip shop and fish restaurant.
The fish was extremely tasty and the chips cooked to perfection.
The cost of £6.40 included fish and chips with bread and butter and a cup of tea [or coffee] and this was well worth the price.
Favorite Dish: THE HADDOCK WAS DELICIOUS
Drakes Fish restaurant: Drakes.
This place is very popular, and always busy, so you can guess how good the fish and chips are served the english way with tea and bread and butter. If the restaurant is full there is also a takeaway shop.
Riverview Chinese Restaurant: Friendly staff, Good food
We were pleased to have found somewhere to eat, even more so when we found out how friendly and helpful the staff were.
This Cantonese Restaurant has seating for about 60. We were shown to a table in a conservatory area of the dining area. (The Restaurant is reached down a flight of stairs - WC is on the upper floor (near the entrance)
When we explained that Angie and I had only a short time to eat (I had to whizz Angie to Sheffield, where she was due to catch her train) the waitress took our order first- It arrived in record time - I was impressed. My meal was hot, well cooked ...and delicious! I just wish I'd had more time to sit and enjoy my meal.
The restaurant is licenced, but as I was driving, I stuck to a soft drink.
A good selection of dishes.
Sunday - 1700 - 22.00

Drakes: Fish and chips
A traditional Yorkshire fish and chip restaurant that is open from 11.00 until late for take away food although the restaurant closes at 21.00.
The tables are as they should be in a fish and chip restaurant with red tablecloth and traditional pottery. The young staff members are friendly and service was fast and efficient on a summer Sunday night.
The fish was well cooked although probably a bit heavy on the batter and also there was only mushy peas and no garden peas but these are small issues and we shall visit again.
The toilets were clean and the restaurant overall pleasing.
Visited again on 18/05/2014 - as good as the last visit and more variety on the menu - the lemon sole was wonderful. Please note that this is a cash only restaurant.
The Moat buttery Cafe [Knaresbourgh]: A nice tea and scone
The moat buttery café is a very charming little café set a stones throw away from the castle in knaresborough it is very quaint in its internal décor been what can only be described as very English.
My visit here was mid morning so I had a pot of tea and some home made scones ive tasted many scones in my days and I would put these been very good.
Favorite Dish: The home made scones are very good,
other food on display looked apprenticing.
