Not much choice for vegetarians and none for vegans. The quinoa burger thing was ok but rather dry and included two limp brown lettuce leaves which I would have thrown away rather than put them in my lunch. The food took a long while to come and, when I enquired, I was told by a rather surly waitress that the... More

We came in for a quick drink and I have to say it was quite an achievement to be ignored by 3 members of staff. One member of staff was clearing plates while playing Pokémon Go.

This pub has a lovely garden out back which on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night has a lovely post-work drinks atmosphere. The staff are always polite and friendly and the food is served swiftly. Keep it up!

Admittedly Sundays are hard days to find a pub that serves food in Guildford. But I had remembered the Drummond from some years ago, when friends lived locally, as an atmospheric pub that did good food. I had the sausage and mash tonight. It arrived so quickly (not complaining about speedy service) that it has clearly been microwaved. The sausages... More

The yorkshires were a work of art huge and delicious . We polished off the mains and the desserts were equally good and I can ddefinitely... More

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.
