This place used to be probably the hottest spot for dinner in Harrogate.

It is still a charming old place - although the stuffed monkey is looking a bit moth-eaten now!... More

We were visiting Harrogate for the birth of a grand daughter. This restaurant came highly recommended and we were looking forward to an enjoyable evening with our British friends. We were treated so poorly we were in shock. Our waiter gave the impression that we were a bother when we asked questions about the menu. My husband ordered Dover Sole... More

The whole meal was excellent, my only niggle is the coffee being presented with packets of sugar instead of a sugar dish, just a minor finishing touch to a beautiful meal

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
