We have had lunch and dinner several time at the Fife 'n Drum. The food and service is always very good. Prices are reasonable. Sometimes on weekends they have music entertainment in the evening and it is always excellent.

Very nice restaurant with very attentive staff. The steak was cooked perfect and the desserts were outstanding. The owner played the piano while we were there, he's 97 I think and he was great. The prices were higher here but not astronomical.

Standard tavern fare on the menu, but it was the specials board that got our attention. I enjoyed the special butternut squash ravioli with apples, spinach, and pumpkin seed brown butter sauce. My husband went for the messy but tasty pub cheddar burger. We shared...More

We are in the process of getting a patio. Hopefully with in 2 weeks. I would imagine pets are allowed on it. Hope to see you soon!
Are you open for breakfast? We are coming from Atlanta with hotshot delivery. Will be in Kent early morning.
