We made it into CAMRA's Good Beer Guide 2015!

We have always looked after our beer and we are proud to feature in The Good Beer Guide 2015!

The guide is fully revised and updated each year and features pubs across the United Kingdom that serve the best real ale. Now in its 42nd edition, the pub guide is completely independent with listings based
entirely on nomination and evaluation by CAMRA members. This means you can be sure that every one of the 4,500 pubs deserves their place, plus they all come recommended by people who know a thing or two about good beer.

So now its official that we have great ale - we look forward to welcoming you to the Drum!

See the York Press for a toast to the Drum and the great Yorkshire pubs that feature in the book!

If you want to buy a copy of the book please visit the CAMRA website.

Drumfest Gallery!

On 26th May, Bank Holiday Monday, The Mended Drum in Huby held the first ever Drumfest with an afternoon of live music from local bands and musicians and a BBQ.

The event was well attended with more than 150 people of all ages having a great time in the beer garden.

Cue The Reverb
Late Night Antics
The Hoolivans
Poppy, Paul, and Mandy Moore

The day was a fantastic success, and even the weather played its part with the rain holding off until near the end of the event, and to top off the day, we also managed to raise a good amount of money for SANDS Stillbirth and Neonatal charity.

Below are just a few of the images taken from the day, to see the whole selection please visit our Facebook page!
