What the licensee says

Two old school friends and their wives have transformed the fortunes of Petersfield's oldest pub. Simon Hawkins and Robin Canty first met at school at the tender age of 11, now almost 40 years later they have come together again to rescue The Old Drum, a 16th Century Inn in the heart of Petersfield. With their wives, Suzi and Be, they have uncovered and restored a previously unloved and unfrequented building, and turned it into a thriving, bustling pub/restaurant with rooms. Since opening at the beginning of July 2012, after a six week closure for the works, the pub has gone from strength to strength. Where once H. G. Wells sat and wrote, Petersfield citizens are now enjoying local real ales and great seasonal food prepared by Simon Hartnett, the Head Chef. Simon have recently been awarded an AA rosette for his stunning food.
