Despite working in Harrogate for twenty years and now living here for two, we had never been to this renowned restaurant. It was our wedding anniversary so we booked and went. It was very good. The lobster festival was on so we had the lobster with garlic butter. I am suspicious of lobster in England - often over-cooked or over-kept... More

This was my second visit to the Drum & Monkey, and it didn't disappoint. The lobster festive is on so we had the 2 course lobster special - £29.50 for 2 courses. Couldn't fault it! The staff are friendly and efficient and the food superb. Only negative, and I'm being picky - the carpet in the restaurant could do with... More

We came here for the first time on a Friday night I booked it the previous Sunday and there were only two sittings available (booking is essential). The restaurant was full, which is always a great sign. We had the queen scallops to start which were cooked with garlic and served sizzling with cheese on the top. For our mains... More

We don't often get to visit Harrogate, but when we do, The Drum And Monkey is always the first choice. It seems to be for an awful lot of other people too, so even on a weekday lunchtime if you haven't made a reservation, bet on the doorstep when they open at noon. But even when busy it isn't noisy...

Fish soup and the salmon mousse as starters were excellent. We both had full cold lobster for main which was delicious. Chocolate marquise desert perfect to finish. All accompanied by a Picpoul perfect with seafood. Excellent seafood restaurant. Warm welcome. Dining both levels well set out. Staff efficient, pleasant, professional and helpful. A good dining experience.

We visited after a recommendation and were delighted with the food. It was fabulous to have delicious fresh seafood properly cooked. The wine was excellent and staff very pleasant and provided good recommendations. Would love to go back to try the entire menu!

Amazing meal. We ordered off the lobster festival menu. The portions were large, the food lovely and great value for money. Will definitely visit again.
