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.

Good roast

Four of us visited The Drummond for Sunday lunch. It wasn't very busy and was quiet enough for easy conversation.

First of all: Order the slow-cooked short rib... Fantastic!! Staff is friendly, good beers and burguers, nice atmosphere, backyard and tables on the sidewalk too. This is my 2nd time, on weekdays, so I cannot say if it gets at least half full.

Came here for Sunday roast and was disappointed. The Drummond is a nice pub with a good atmosphere but the roast beef was average compared to others in town. Part of this was because there was some herb - tarragon? -in the vegetables which really isn't necessary. Would happily return but not the best to be had

Came here randomly with a friend after looking on Trip Advisor and wasn't disappointed. Not only is it beautiful in its outside area the food was sensational. I had pork belly which was very generous and mind blowing and my friend has Sea bass. Staff were great and it was a lovely evening with great food and company.

We always this pub for a few drinks and sometimes something to eat when we visit Guildford for cricket. The pub is just over the road from the ground so its very convenient. They have a good selection of beers at reasonable prices and a fairly extensive food menu. As well as comfortable seating inside they also have a large... More

Came to the Drummond for a quick lunch with a friend recently. We ordered from the bar snacks menu, and got some sliders, potato skins and whiting fish. The bar drinks are quite plentiful too, quite a big selection really. We both enjoyed the food, and it was a great quiet atmosphere inside too which helped. Nothing worse than being... More

This has been one of our favourite pubs to visit whilst living in Guildford. The staff are friendly and knowledgable and there is a great range of beers on offer, which they are more than happy to let you try before you buy. We have always found the food to be excellent, whether it is the delicious bar snacks, evening... More

The Drummond is perfect for the sort of place you'd go after work for a drink with friends. There's a good selection of draft and bottled beers and inside it's cosy and welcoming with a decent sized outside area with patio.It's not somewhere I'd take my pensioner parents for Sunday lunch however. They've revamped the menu in the last few... More
