Went to the Drum and Monkey on a friends recomendation, and it did not disappoint. Great fresh seafood and very good service , I would highly recommend the seafood bowl. Scallops,langoustines, king prawns crab,shrimps and oyster thought the bowl was bottomless. Not expensive either.

Delicious fish restaurant. Great choice on the menu - just fish dishes and our food was wonderfully cooked. Good atmosphere, but I'd recommend booking.
