A little pub history
Dating back to 1936 The Drum's claim to fame is its architect; the world famous Sir Edwin Lutyens ( Lutyens designed the pub as the focal point of the village and today his beautiful vision retains all its traditional charm thanks to a recent million pound restoration project that replaced its thatched roof, restored its beautiful gardens and made the most of its superb views.
