About
Drum & Quill is open for limited indoor and outdoor dining and and take out. Customers have been great saying how they missed this authentic historic tavern experience. Its challenging for us since we are so small but removing 32 indoor seats to 50% occupancy and using 6ft distancing has allowed us to deliver that experience under Phase 2 guidelines. Also - we have a laser scanner at the front door checking customers and staff temp which adds a level of safety. So come enjoy a classic tavern experience in historic Old Town Pinehurst.
