About Drum and Monkey
A Little Piece of Harrogate History
Located in the heart of the boutique Montpellier Quarter, our intimate Harrogate restaurant serves lunch and dinner over two floors with a daily changing menu, reflecting seasonality and availability. We are proud of our Yorkshire heritage and local dishes include Nidderdale trout. Whether you are one of our many regular customers or just visiting Harrogate for an event, you will receive attentive service and quality food.
The Drum and Monkey is owned and personally managed by the Carter Family who took over the restaurant in 2013. With our reputation built on quality and service, we are delighted to have the opportunity to be part of the story of one of the oldest Harrogate restaurants. The Drum and Monkey is a place we love and do not wish to change – as the only dedicated seafood restaurant in Harrogate we feel we have the perfect niche. The refurbishments we have undertaken all respect the heritage of The Drum and Monkey restaurant and the idiosyncrasies of our delightful old building.
Our aim is simply to continue to serve the very best fresh seafood from our Harrogate restaurant, taking care of our loyal clientele, welcoming new diners and building our reputation for outstanding food and service.
The Drum and Monkey has been serving the best in seafood for almost 50 years. We have the perfect location in the heart of Harrogate where you will find us tucked away in the historic Montpellier Quarter. The Drum and Monkey is proud to be independent with our owner very much hands on and committed to maintaining our excellent reputation. Whether as second home to our locals or as visitors to our beautiful town, you can be sure of superb seafood, an excellent wine list and attentive service
Quite simply superb.
The best fish restaurant in Harrogate, possibly the best restaurant overall.

We visited here on a recommendation from friends fantastic meal great staff would highly recommend we both had the fish pie.
An amazing restaurant and service and food just outstanding. Will definitely be back in the future
A lovely evening - the food was delicious and nicely presented. Tables quite close together though.
An amazing customer experience. We booked this as a celebratory meal for our 20th wedding anniversary and it couldn’t have been any more perfect. Your French head of house was attentive without being intrusive, and his wine recommendation was spot on! We will definitely return, and we will definitely recommend to our family, friends and wider community. Thank you for a wonderful evening. Janet

Food and service was amazing. Such a lovely waitress.
Beautiful food, Sassy Staff. Very nice plaice had a lot of sole, every-fin was up to standard in our eyes.
It was our first time their and I was horrified to find a large shell in my sisters meal. She cut the roof of her mouth. She got a free desert. Really !!!! We paid full price, I didn’t make to much of it while I was their because my sisters husband is an ill man and I didn’t want to stress him. I think for such a pricey restaurant more care should of been given. When I made it known to the waiter a joke was made. Outrageous !!!!
We had a really lovely evening. The food wad cooked to perfection and the service second to none
Great food as always . We are the second generation of my family to eat regularly at the Drum
