Refurbished several years ago, the Drum & Monkey has lots of exposed beams and brickwork, giving an olde worlde feeling without being tacky. The name may come from the blasting powder carriers working on construction of the nearby railway - the powder monkeys. And the drum? The receptacle the powder was stored in. The manager is a real ale enthusiast, and the beers (mostly from the Greene King stable, but often including Timothy Taylor and local Silhill brewery) are usually in fabulous condition. Food is superb.
