Description: The Old Drum is a contemporary country pub in the centre of Petersfield. Built in the 18th Century, it is the oldest in the area and has been lovingly and painstakingly restored to keep its character and charm. Enjoy real ales and fantastic, locally sourced food in a relaxed, eclectic environment. With three open fires, comfy leather sofas and happy, smiling staff, what's not to like? We strive to be as green as possible in supporting local businesses by sourcing our high quality ingredients from local suppliers.

This pub is fantastic. The roast beef and all the trimmings were delicious - quality produce cooked to perfection. We spent the afternoon sat in the beautiful gardens, everywhere was very clean and finished to a high standard. All the staff were friendly and attentive. A wonderful experience will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu!!

Renovated over the last 18 months this restaurant has a good feel to it. Seating inside and in a garden setting outside. Menu is not extensive but would suit most tastes. The range of drinks are extensive and reasonably priced. Service was acceptable although on this wet night numbers were small. Interestingly this venue offers 5 rooms for guests to stay from a single to a family room. All nicely presented. This is a good place for a meal with friends.

Visiting Petersfield for one night, travelling by train. The Old Drum was ideally placed for our stay. Our room was on the front and we wondered about noise, but this did not happen.
Very comfortable and a good breakfast, the equipment in the room was excellent, but lacked instructions on how to use the new coffee maker and Apple TV. This however was the only downside of a good stay.

Its a little unfair to have a 20% service charge slapped on top of the bill. The beef was undercooked and the ceviche was NOT ceviche - just apile of thinly sliced veggies. Really poor service.....
I liked the decor - the penny black wallpaper !!

Whilst staying in Petersfield I had a meal here one evening. It was lovely. You pay a little more but its well worth it, especially if it is a special occassion
