A very good pub just got even better, new chef, new menu, delicious food try the curried lamb shank or the belly pork with boudin noir mash. Really well kept local beers and always a warm welcome in this attractive and efficiently run pub.
Excellent evening of food and entertainment. Well done to the owners and staff of the Drewe Arms. The hog roast was fantastic my son could not get enough and even Angus, the dog, got some! Choice of cider was extensive plus all the normal brews. All very well presented and with a great atmosphere.
A warm and friendly welcome in this beautifully historical building. We were shown to a lovely table in a quiet corner that was perfect as we had our dog with us. It was a Sunday so a roast was a must. WOW!!!! the portions were generous and we were too full for pudding, but imagine they are just as wonderful. Book so you aren't disappointed, but more importantly don't pass this one by.

Annon and spouse really like this old thatched pub. It's to be found in a chocolate box village, just a mile off the main road, a bit like entering a beautiful film set, almost dreamlike and there just at the bottom of the church lane, sits The Drewe where big, warm fires await when needed. Fab good honest English food, very well cooked. The owners are welcoming and nothing's a problem. Perfect!
We went for an evening meal as a family and had a really excellent meal. The rump lamp was cooked to perfection and one of the nicest lamb meals I've had in ages. My daughter gave the Drewe Burger a thumbs up and the chocolate brownie pudding was to die for. I love the way the Drewe Arms is a mix of locals and visitors. It's also very child and dog friendly, a true country pub - a real treat.
This pub is off the beaten track, so is well used by locals in the know. Worth seeking out, but advisable to book a table as it can get really busy, even on weekday evenings. Food is a mixture of adventurous and classic British dishes with a twist. It comes fresh, piping hot and fairly quickly. Service is friendly and efficient and the decor and ambiance adds to the pleasant experience. Log fires in the winter and a garden for al fresco dining in the summer make this a good all year round venue.
