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
A lovely afternoon chatting, drinking a cold crisp Gavi di Gavi and eating gorgeous sea food with no pressure....perfect Thank you D and M
We had an absolutely wonderful meal and the service was great. The highlight was the most impeccably cooked piece of halibut I’ve ever eaten. One tiny criticism - the biscuit with the creme brûlée - the bake wasn’t right, but it did not detract from what was a lovely meal.
Glad to see you so busy. Excellent all round experience.
Amazing food and service.
Seafood linguine had a bit too much going on. All was good but not entirely special. Tasted good, service good and reasonable price but none of it blew us away
Excellent food, staff amazing we will be back.
Great food and service the waiter was very good, knowledgeable, friendly chatty at the right times we had a good laugh on several occasions. He really made the dinner.
Superb meal, surroundings and service - perfect for our wedding celebration. We will return!
This was out first visit in over 10 years. Every bit as good as we remembered- and better. Fantastic food, atmosphere, service and value. One of our favourite if not best restaurant anywhere. Yes we highly recommend
Fabulous lunch food & service Thank you to all we will be back again xx
The fish soup was particularly good and was probably the stand out dish, although we greatly enjoyed our other courses.
Not bad. The table we had wasn't the best . It was all a quick
First visited 38 years ago when we lived in Harrogate always good then. Did not disappoint, atmospheric restaurant, great service and good quality food. Will return on our next visit to Harrogate.
Delicious food and great service. Perfect mid-week lunch. Thank you
It was the first time that we had stayed in Harrogate and the restaurant was recommended to us by a colleague of my wife. We tried it and had a very enjoyable dining experience. I would definitely return and certainly recommend to others who like fish and seafood
Food was amazing! Relaxed atmosphere. Our waitress was brilliant & a credit to the resturant.
100%, delicious seafood and flawless service from entering to leaving! Thank you.
Terrible table half way into the hallway, food decent but expensive. £45 for two main courses and two soft drinks
Good atmosphere. First class service. Staff friendly but professional and the food outstanding. Will be back
Delicious food & superb service. Will definitely be back very soon.
