I was lucky enough to be one of the guests at the wine tasting evening on Monday 3rd March, and what a fantastic night we had. The atmosphere was relaxed, and the food and wine compimented each other brilliantly. Well done to the team who did a great job of looking after all of us. Looking forward to the next... More

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.
