I visited the restaurant following glowing reports from friends. I love fish and found that there was a good selection to choose from. I ordered the scallops followed by smoked trout. The reason for the 4 star rating rather than 5 is because the scallops were served in a lovely metal dish but one which was placed on top of... More

Visited the Drum and Monkey today for my Birthday. Staff were very attentive and gave us a choice of tables. We had the lunchtime menu and opted for a main course and starter. The food was perfect, and the desserts were sublime. Wonderful service, wonderful food. Perfect all round.

Really nice lunch here - the seafood is very good.. Difficult to describe the decor, old fashioned, unusual - but it has its own sense of charm ! Service was very pleasant and efficient, if a little slow .A very pleasant lunch though - would definitely go again.

We ate here with friends for a pre theatre meal. They open at 1730 and the proximity to the Royal Hall made it a good choice. We used the early evening menu which was extensive. The only caveat is that potatoes are not included with main course which means they must ordered as an extra. The food was very good... More

We have been regulars for 17 years and have just been for a meal again this evening. It was just excellent. The food was really good. We had the mackerel and prawn cocktail for starter and for main we had fish cakes and smoked haddock florentine. We think the mains were better than the originals. When I saw the smoked... More

Delicious seafood in a lovely environment with warm and friendly service. Four of us went for lunch, it was busy but we had booked and we were seated in the bar as requested. The food as on previous visits was fantastic, fresh, tasty and just the right size portions. Although the staff were busy we were well looked after, we... More

Its been several years since i visited the Drum and Monkey because, I got to the stage where i wasn't impressed with the quality of the food or the service. However, I'd heard some good things about what was happening at the Drum. So i decided to give it a try and I must say how impressed I was with... More
