I have been here twice. Had nachos with my wife. They were huge and yummy. Then burger with a friend that was delicious. I would say this is the best pub in Pinehurst.

Great food. Great decor. Great ambiance. Great service. Great price. I would love to tell you more but I don’t want this place to get over crowded with tourists. The fish and chips here are out of this world.

Not a very big place, but the food was excellent. Decorated very nice for Christmas. Not a big fan of onions in chicken salad, but to each their own.

Description
The Drum & Quill Public House is located in Old Town Pinehurst, the home of American golf. Our building has served the public for nearly a century, once housing the pharmacy and soda fountain said to be manufactured by James Walker Tufts himself, the founder of Pinehurst. The storefront was later converted to a pub, which it remains today. We are an historic "Public House" just as early public houses often were identified by simple signs that featured creatures such as lions, dolphins, elephants, bulls or swans so knowing how to read a name was not necessary to identify a location. The Drum & Quill Public House honors that tradition with the "Drum" represents Bob "the Drummer" Drum, a golf writer best known for his regular TV spot on CBS, and for his lifelong documentation of Arnold Palmer's creating golf's professional "Grand Slam". The "Quill" represents the power of the writers written word . Remember our motto - "Its More Fun To Eat In A Pub."
