Standard type of Vintage Inn's place. Never the greatest imagination of ales.
Landlord, Tribute and, yes you guessed it - Doombar.
I did go against my principles and asked how much the Moor's Union Hop (keg) spit, from the shiny pump was? £5.05, I was told - honestly.
Food not the best I've had - needed a decent beer to wash it down.

Large food orientated pub in lovely surroundings.

On my visit there 3 ales on draught, the pints of Otter I had were very good and well kept.

Good menu with a lot of choices including 3 speciality pies and a good fish range and meals at decent prices

Busy, smallish bar area with the majority of space taken for eating.

Large gardens and car park.

Nice place in a historical village a short distance for the front, car or cab to get here only.

The cockington country park is like a fish out of water in the dump of Torquay
and the Drum Inn is a fantastic looking place.
We only drank here so can't say much about the food.
The trouble is with tourist areas repeat trade is rare so pubs don't care as you may not be returning anyway.

The Drum Inn is a striking 1930s thatched building in the chocolate box village of Cockington. The approach via the arched entrance is most impressive. It bills itself as a traditional country pub but is nothing of the sort, being a gastropub/restaurant affair.
Three handpumps serving Tribute, Butcombe and Summer Lightning. My pint of Summer Lightning was in poor condition. The food was okay and reasonably priced. The outdoor drinking area, overlooking a sweeping lawn is quite pleasant.
I will give it another go next time I'm in the area.

Well, the food we had seemed to be very good value (but then we do live in the South-East); the service could not have been friendlier or more efficient. The pint of Butcombe I had was in first rate nick, as well.
It's an interesting place, designed by Lutyens, in a very attractive setting. Obviously it's food centred, and generally that makes for the kind of pub that I personally am not so keen on - but I liked this place; it was warm, comfortable and friendly, and I'd certainly be happy to go there again if I was in the area.
