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

Have been dining at Drum and Monkey for many years. It was voucher for my Birthday from my Daughter. I have to say my Lobster was Delicious and my friend really enjoyed her fish pie. Hope to see you again when you reopen. Keep safe Anita

Fabulous! Charming service, fabuolous food. My wife loved it for her birthday with her elderly parents. It's still in a time warp in terms of interiors but that is part of it's charm. It's rightly a Harrogate institution. Highly recommend

The Drum and Monkey provides a very high standard of fish cookery as it has for all if the 30 plus years I have eaten there. The service is attentive without being fussy and although prices are high I think they are worth it. If you like fish you have to love the Drum and Monkey.

Great food and service, only let down by the size and location of our table. However, we had insisted on a table downstairs so I am nit-picking. The Nidderdale trout was fantastic!

I already left you a stella review on google. Perhaps this is different? Your Staff Vicky and a delightful young lady whose name ( is she Croatian/ Latvian) sorry I don not remember were.just the kindest sweetest people. But frankly the chablis Grand Cru was weak and I am not paying 120£ for C. Montrachet considering the rest of the wines by the glass were all weak. food superb and a really fair price Oysters Exceptional.. queen Scallops on shells were really not so good...felt as if Mozzarella balls had been added. King Scallops were brilliant. Will be back if you have me!
