The food here is very good and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We were a bit disappointed with the seating as we had booked standard dining, but were given high table and advised that the standard seating wasn't available, however a standard table next to us was available all night. The high tables are a bit uncomfortable to sit at.

An exceptional lunch! The food was exquisite - a wide variety of flavors/dishes, whilst beautifully presented and cooked to perfection - simply delicious. Perfect portions too. Cocktails were spot with their own charming signature about them, along with excellent service, meeting and surpassing expectations. Looking forward to returning again soon to try out new menu!

First time (July 2020) around we absolutely loved this place. Second time (Jan 2021) we were really disappointed. Only thing that changed was quality of the food. Just didn’t reach the same standard - meat dry and flavourless. Entrees were also lacking in any real flavour. Overall bland meals. Left very disappointed as we were so looking forward to it.

Very disappointing for my birthday dinner. We have been to Drum on many occasions and the food has always been excellent. Apparently there are new owners and the food was inedible. We ordered 4 share plates and were disappointed by all of them. The table next to us were also complaining about their meals. They really need to improve to justify the cost.
