The Drum & Quill Public House is located in Old Town Pinehurst, the home of American golf. Our building has served the public for nearly a century, once housing the pharmacy and soda fountain said to be manufactured by James Walker Tufts himself, the founder of Pinehurst. The storefront was later converted to a pub, which it remains today. We are an historic "Public House" just as early public houses often were identified by simple signs that featured creatures such as lions, dolphins, elephants, bulls or swans so knowing how to read a name was not necessary to identify a location. The Drum & Quill Public House honors that tradition with the "Drum" represents Bob "the Drummer" Drum, a golf writer best known for his regular TV spot on CBS, and for his lifelong documentation of Arnold Palmer's creating golf's professional "Grand Slam". The "Quill" represents the power of the writers written word . Remember our motto – "Its More Fun To Eat In A Pub."

.The menu had so many choices that I had a hard time making a decision! I went with the Henny Penny and loved every bite! It was a wonderful combination of roasted Turkey, caramelized onions, and melted brie on toasted sunflower bread. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! The sandwich was accompanied by the best sweet potato fries I have ever had. They were perfectly prepared and seasoned. My friends were equally as impressed with their lunch choices. We all agreed that it would be worth the 4 hour drive to go back to Pinehurst just to eat at The Drum and Quill.
