We found the Drum and Monkey by accident, and booked for dinner in the evening. The place was busy but the staff were efficient and attentive, Menu was attractive with interesting selections, My wife started with a salmon pate which came as a big ramekin full and rather floored her, I had a trio of seafood and found them all...

Discovered this restaurant by chance and what a find, easy to book and would advise that you do as this is a fairly popular restaurant and I know why the food is beautifully prepared, presented and just delicious. 5 of us dined (4 starters, 5 mains 3 deserts with wine £175) worth every penny. I would recommend the salmon pate,... More

Beautiful meal with impeccable service. Scallops were amazing and the lobster Thermidor was perfect!

Lack lustre service and a waitress who did not even bother to ask if the wine that was ordered was for the whole table (of 13) or just for one couple. The food and ambience would be good at pub prices but at these prices was disappointing.

My husband had dined here a few years ago, and was keen to go back when we were in Harrogate during the build up to the Tour de France this summer. We were not disappointed - a superb dinner in congenial surroundings. Excellent service, magnificent cooking and a friendly 'mine host', who welcomed us warmly. The bill was surprisingly moderate...

We had the lobster lunch which was excellent and a perfectly judged quantity. The service was friendly and efficient and, as shoud be the case with every good restuarant, we are anxious to return. It is a small space but no attempt has been made to overcrowed it, so the feeling is that you might be in someone's dining room,... More

I have been coming to the drum and monkey for several years. I love seafood. I have had various dishes. My favourite is scallops. The scallops here are the best scallops I've ever had. Today I had the brown bread and butter, scallops and Dauphinoise potatoes. What can say about this restaurant the food is so consistent, always very good.... More
