We had a lovely Valentine's day dinner at Drum. It was a 5 course set menu and everything was cooked perfectly and arrived in a nicely timed fashion. We love eating at our local restaurant.

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.

Fine dining with a lovely ambience, amazing food and presentation. Very attentive and obliging staff. It was our friends birthday celebration dinner and on very little notice they prepared a lovely dessert beautifully presented with Happy Birthday written in chocolate around the plate....memorable and wonderful evening.

We have dined at The Drum several times, and have come to love your Pork Belly with mash and vegies. Great meal - until this time. The pork was sloppy and the cracking also not the usual crunchy quality. Instead of potatoe mash we had kipfler potatoes with gravy, also not the same.

My wife and I agreed that the meal was OK but no reson to ever come back to The Drum. Memorable for the ordinaryness rather than the quality.

Given that there were only a few people dining, I assume you had the "B" team in the kitchen. Understandable but sad from our point of view.

I hope these comments, although not what you hoped for, will help.

Kind regards,

Bert Snelleman

We had an excellent meal at Drum and the service was very friendly and helpful.
We were there early so it was pretty quiet, but believe even when busier the service will still be great.

Absolutely delicious food- the eye fillet and barra were cooked to perfection with mouth watering accompaniments. The service was fast and staff were very friendly. They moved us by the window when that became available without me asking. They also did a birthday plate and were happy to take photos. Loved the head chefs taste in music too! Great night.
