This is a great place, with a nice outside area and plenty of space inside. Large choice of lager and few ale and plenty of wine selection. Burger is good and staff very friendly. Good whatever the time of the day !

Popped in here for a drink after a gap of many years. It's certainly improved, and is now a perfectly pleasant pub. Serves a nice pint of Proper Job, so keeps its beers well. Menu looks a bit limited but didn't have anything to eat...More

Come here often, lovely place with a great garden and good beer range. Food has always been a good standard, one if the best roasts in town. The Drummond remains a favourite for many people who have lived in Guildford, you can't go wrong here!More

After a morning visit to the National Trust place nearby, the kids were cataclysmically hungry (even though they had already their fill of breaded snacks) so we headed to the Drummond. We arrived without a booking and got a good table by the window. Win...More

Description
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.
