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.

This a warm friendly place in the winter and just as nice for a cool drink by the stream in the gardens. For fans of real ale, they serve Doombar. We have been here with different friends and all have been impressed with the good quality dishes served by friendly staff. The local trout is a good recommendation.

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.

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

Dropped in for lunch after going to my local to watch a bit of England/Ireland cricket being washed out. Not impressed with the aforementioned new menu, myself and a friend decided on the Drummond as they also had a new menu. Beer was good as always and menu was very good with a couple of deals available. We settled on... More

We were badly in need of a Sunday roast and decided to try The Drummond. Pleasant surprise the place was very quiet. Good welcome, good service, good atmosphere with lots of eccentrics. Now, about the roast. Good, medium rare etc., very Cheffy! Somehow, I missed the traditional one. Nice place with beer garden

My OH and I have eaten here twice, both times without a prior booking on a Sunday at lunchtime. We were fitted in no problem, though on the second time with a request to be out in 2 hours - perfectly reasonable. The food was great - not utterly outstanding but a fine Sunday lunch. My OH had the veggie... More

Called in for something to eat on the way to the theatre so did not have unlimited time. The service was friendly and efficient from the barperson who took our order and Katherine our waitress who was totally on the ball. The main courses arrived promptly and she noticed immediately when we were ready for our desert. The food, macaroni... More
