Great return to this restaurant

Haven't been to the Drum & Monkey for over 20 years since I moved away from Yorkshire! However we were in Harrogate for a wedding and decided to have dinner there. We weren't disappointed. The food is as good as ever and the service was efficient. It was busy even though we dined early so... read more

Lovely food in this fish restaurant. Good service and well presented small restaurant. The early dining option proving a good choice as otherwise, a bit pricey!

Whilst visiting friends in Harrogate they suggested a meal in this restaurant during our stay, as they are locals and rated it highly. Good selection of fish which we really enjoyed. Excellent service and not overpriced. We weren't disappointed with their choice of restaurant.

One word sums up our first visit to the Drum and Monkey ... SUPERB. That word simply says it all from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The food was fresh well presented and certainly top quality. I cannot fault the food nor the menu. Eat here at lunchtime and place was very busy so I can... More

Well cooked fish arrived (20 mins for the fish pie) and well worth the wait. Bread and butter provided to keep the hunger pangs at bay. I had Sea Bass and my wife had a more substantial fish pie. Both were delicious, perfectly cooked and presented. I recommend the Rhubarb Crumble with Orange sauce my wife didn't order one until... More

Relaxed atmosphere, great service and freshly prepared excellent food. Wine list is interesting and very fair value. Picpoul a house option at just over £4.00 a glass. So good we went back the following night.
