As my uncle loves fish we frequently visit this restaurant for lunch. The good points are that there is much locally sourced fish and quality is consistent. Most dishes including the set meals don't include vegetables and these additional items are fairly expensive; it would be better to offer a selection for one price. Dauphinois potatoes very nice though. Sometimes... More

This place is a favourite for my husband, a retired chef, and our September meal was great. He said his lobster was outstanding. Thank you. Nothing changes too much but that is half the charm of the place. We live in Norfolk so can't visit often.

This is one of two favourite restaurants in Harrogate and one we always visit when in Harrogate for a couple of days. Even the most ardent of my meat eating friends love this place. For me the menu is heaven as I am literally spoilt for choice - although I admit for a particular fondness for the fish pie -... More

I have been to the drum and monkey twice now. The first occasion we were looking for somewhere to eat in the town centre and this had very good trip advisor reviews. I was bowled over by how nice the food was. I had seabass and my mum had the king prawn Thai curry. Both were stunning, the nicest seabass... More

I used to use the drum and monkey to entertain customers 20 years ago and it was memorable and top of my favourite restaurant list. The decor is a cross between a Victorian theatre and Parisian bistro. Upstairs is best for Dinner. The menu is unashamedly fish and seafood but no chips or mushy peas! Service is friendly and professional... More

Visited with another couple during their lobster festival; invited to order from the normal menu or the festival one. My husband and I went festival - lovely starter options and then 3 lobster choices for the main. We both went for the garlic butter option with new potatoes. Very garlicky!! A crispy green side salad was lacking but overall it... More
