We have just had a meal at Drusillas and I must say it was fantastic, faultless, quickly served with with great service. To be honest the menu won't be the cheapest you could find in a pub/restaurant (although there are specials on weekdays) but you only get what you pay for. We both had the local Ham, eggs and hand prepared chips (I asked for a salad instead of chips) and the quality of the food was outstanding. House red by the glass starts at £3.50 for 250ml which is an average price to pay I would say. Dogs are allowed in the Pub bar which has a lovely cosy feel...there is a round room and a garden room for eating, one is table service only. There are three menus, in the day you can get a bar snack, then there is a chalkboard for specials and the bar menu and finally the main menu. I will be returning very soon to try the local steak. As a regular user of local village pubs this one is right up there for service, food and service.

Visited Drusilla's for lunch over the May 09 B/H weekend for lunch with my family of 5. First impressions; nice lunch menu if not a little pricey for lunch, we all ordered a cheese ploughmanís at just under £8.00 each.

After a 30 minute wait the food presented was very disappointing and extremely poor value for money.

Our ploughmanís was presented on a small wood chopping board that consisted of a small salad garnish (which was just lettuce), one pickled onion, 2 slices of cheese, 3 very thin slices of ciabatta bread and a tablespoon of chutney- all for £8.00. The menu stated salad, cheese, fruit, crusty bread, and pickles!

On complaining we were presented with a one platter of what appeared to be bagged salad, 5 slices of cheese, 1 tomato, 1 apple, a small bunch of grapes and a basket of bread (all for 5 persons). The fruit was not washed and the apple was not cored and still had its sticker on it.

I don't leave reviews but Iím leaving a review for this pub as our lunch was an expensive rip-off- the owner and chef should be ashamed.

Difficult to know what to make of 'Drusilla's' at the moment. Is it a restaurant that thinks it's a pub, or a pub that would like to be a restaurant?
The cask ale is usually good, the lager always seems to include one that is a little out of the ordinary, but in both cases the choice is limited.
The menu looks interesting, there is a specials board, and the reports I hear of the food fall into the 'I enjoyed that but it was pricy', category.
The landlord and his staff are friendly and efficient, at least in the late afternoon and evening.
My rating 6, based on three recent visits, all I'm afraid when it was quiet.
A promising pub, I look forward to getting to know it better.

Not been here for a very long time (late 70's/early 80's) So have missed out on all the fun and games with previous owners (heard the horror stories though) I really enjoyed it, great food and not that expensive by todays standards, great beer and the staff were all really pleasant

very pleasant welcome, unfortunately although three hand pumps no beer ready to serve?
