I thought the food was good and well presented, however after eating our excellent starter of Queen Scallops, the main course was delivered to the table immediately afterwards. this resulted in what we anticipated being a leisurely meal over a couple of hours became a rushed affair of just over an hour. This is my only complaint but one I... More

A lovely evening! Pleasant welcome and service. A pretty room downstairs in the bar (there is an upstairs room which we didn't see). Best of all, delicious food. Only fish and seafood on the menu so perhaps not the best place for a large group. But if you are a fish lover, and don't mind paying a reasonable amount for... More

Enjoyed a realky tasty meal here. The fish soup had some chunky pieces of fish in a gorgeous stock which was slightly spiced. The salmon pate with toast was very tasty. For mains we shared the hot seafood platter with additional lobster and we felt this was more than adequate. The smokey shrimps were my favourite. Perhaps just a little... More

We have dined here on quite a few occasions and never been disappointed. If you like seafood, this is a must since they specialise. You will be spoiled for choice but the menu will contain something to please everyone. Service very good but discreet.

This is a very friendly restaurant and the lovely lady owner and staff could not be more helpful. This is a fish restaurant and I had the fresh prawns followed by a delicious sweet lobster with a salad. There is a good wine list. It is a small restaurant, so a booking is good and the tables are close together... More

Been coming here for the best part of 30 years and have always loved it, great food and a lovely traditional atmosphere. I no longer live in Harrogate but return at least two times a year to visit the Drum. Last nights meal was distinctly poor, prawn cocktail was just a few frozen and defrosted prawns with tasteless mayonnaise and... More

We, two couples have been to this resturant many times over the past 20 plus years and it has always been superb. We live in Essex and have not been for a few years so when we booked and found it had changed hands we were a tad concerned! As it happens it was still as good as ever! The... More
