About Us

Based in Stanford North, Between Ashford and Folkestone Just  off the M20 at junction 11, The Drum Inn was built during the reign of Queen Anne (1702-1714), in the year 1708. Originally called, “Ye Olde Drum”, it was built at a time when this area of Kent maintained a high level of military activity and was frequented regularly by the Duke of Marlborough’s regiment. The public house became affectionately known as "The Drum Inn”.

The Drum Inn now boasts more than just ales, with a restaurant serving traditional Pub cooked dishes from products and ingredients sourced locally to the inn. In addition, we also have opportunities for you to start your holiday with us, with our campsite with all facilities. As the last point before the Channel Tunnel and only 15 minutes from the port of Dover, we welcome many guests each year who are looking to explore the beauty of Kent.

Today, the inn retains its rustic charm and hospitality, with traditional beams and roaring wood burner fires. Whether you are looking for those traditional ales, some fantastic home cooked food, or some great live music, then Mick and he's Team are waiting to welcome you to The Drum Inn.
