We visited the Drum and Monkey last night and we were blown away with not only the beautiful seafood but also the level of service. Very, very good indeed. We also were impressed with the bill, after 3 courses and wine the menu is very reasonably priced for the high standard of food. We can't wait to return when we... More

I took my wife to this restaurant last night for valentines. Booking on line was easy via the email link and within 24hrs I had confirmation of my booking. The restaurant has a small friendly feel to it and everything was clean, warm and welcoming. The staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The food was exceptional... More

Four of us visited Drum and Monkey for an evening meal. Food and service were both excellent, although as they major on fish dishes, you have to like fish! Best smoked salmon pate I have ever had. Prices not overly expensive for the dishes we had. All four very happy at the end of the evening.

We have always resisted visiting here not being huge fish eaters, however we are glad we tried it. The food was exceptionally well cooked and presented, a good variety based around fish. I had lobster with garlic butter and Dover sole. This place is made very special by the service, efficient and friendly, relaxed and welcoming. We had a great... More

Beautiful oldschool dining experience. Being so far from the sea you'd be forgiven for thinking "how good can it be?" don't worry its brilliant. Love coming here and ordering shell fish and getting gloriously sticky in the process.

Booked late Friday for saturday and they could only fit us in at 6pm. Wondered why when we arrived as we were first, but half hour later the restaurant was full. So book early if you want to eat later. The food and service were excellent, a must for thise who like all thing fish.

It was the night Fidel Castro's death was announced. Suffice to say it didn't put us off our dinner. Before talking about the D&M can I just make a plea for some thing to change in 2017 on the restaurant front? I only have seven things that need doing and none of them will cost a penny to the owners.... More

Found by searching online and reading reviews! Good varied menu, many tempting things. Raw oysters only on the menu but the waitress suggested they would lightly cook a couple for me in garlic and butter, beautiful. All our food was extremely tasty and good.

Thank Carol W
