The Drummond was our local pub and we used to come here every 2 weeks or so. Especially liked their Sunday roasts and also the midweek Burger night. However since the refurbishment earlier this year, it hasn't been the same. We have had multiple separate...More

The Drummond Arms is located on a busy road just off to the center of Guildford. The place has a modern looking feel, yet is also incredibly bland that it is almost like a cross between pub/gastro pub and a Bar. On my visits the...More

Description
The cream of Guildford pubs. You'll find The Drummond just outside Guildford Cricket Club, but you won't find another like it. There's always something good on, even if it's just in the culinary sense, so park yourself on one of our old-school bar stools and indulge in a plate of superb seasonal pub food, which you can see being freshly prepared in our open kitchen. Plus we've got more wines, spirits and speciality beers than you can shake a wicket keeper at. Put it this way, we know our Pilsner from our Peroni.
Thank you to everyone that takes the time to review us! We appreciate all feedback and look forwards to seeing you again soon or meeting you for the first time.
