We were there last night to dine with family but I still managed a few pints. The local Silhill Brewery Twinkle Twinkle Little Star wasn't very good and nor was the Greene King IPA. Fortunately, the Hardys & Hansons Rocking Rudolph was much better and the Tribute wasn't far behind (and they were all priced fairly at around £3.40 a pint). It's been many years since I was last in the Drum but I don't remember any exposed timber work from my last visit (has it been added to make this 1860s pub look older?). Whatever its date, the timber post in the middle of our table didn't exactly help conversation. Overall, a mixed bag and I can't see us rushing back too soon.

Just nipped in for a quick drink. Service is beyond comparison, excellent. Recommend highly. Didn't try the food this visit.
Will always come again for the ale and the friendly staff.
Only nipped in for a drink, a Big 9..

Busy Chef & Brewer pub that was full with people seemingly enjoying 2 for 1 meals. The atmosphere was similar to a real pub. But this is still very much a restaurant. Real ales available were Greene King IPA, Abbot Ale & Old Speckled Hen & Holdens Golden Glow. There were other people only there for the beer. But being the minority, I didn't manage to get too comfortable.

I visited this pub today with my family and it was dire. Fish with bones in, lumpy gravy, chips that were overcooked to the point of being inedible as well as tasting of very old fat, an "apple salad" that consisted of a few random lumps of apple on a bunch of watercress - added to a dirty sticky table, (plenty to read though, lots of graffiti scratched upon it), a filthy stained bench seat plus an even dirtier carpet (ugh!) and to cap it all - a manager who just said it was all down to "head office" and they had lots of people in yesterday and the oil was changed twice a week! No wonder it all tasted awful - oh and if you are supplying gravy made with gravy granules (yuck!) please at least have the decency to remove the lumps before slopping it down in front of your customers! Take my advice, just dont go there.
