We like the menu and the unique entrees that they serve. It's a cozy place in the historic Pinehurst Village with interesting golf memorabilia, Irish Pub decor, an active bar, and great service. Sometimes it seems noisy but that's what you should expect in the...More

Drum and Quill is a much needed addition to the Village of Pinehurst. Located in the center of this beautiful New England style golf resort village, it is the perfect stop for a bite to eat or an afternoon or evening libation. It is comfortable...More

My first visit was at the request of one of the ladies in our group and since I missed visiting the previous pub before it closed down, I wanted to visit this one to see what all the fuss was about. When I walked in,...More

Stopped by for a drink and some food...not expecting anything too fussy. Well, we got what we thought and I think a bit less. Ordered two martinis...OK. Ordered fish tacos and a chopped salad. Very disappointed...the fish (mahi) was lukewarm and the fruit salsa was...More

Great addition to the Pinehurst pub experience. Owner Kevin Drum is a local who knows the local scene. Great food and even better drinks.

Today, what was the Darling House, has reopened as the Drum & Quill. New décor, floor plan and menu. The beautiful Tiffany is still behind the bar. Nice to have another choice for lunch, dinner or drinks.

Excellent pub food. I had the French dip and it was delicious. My friends had the mahi and another had the salmon and both of those looked great as well. Very small dining area. Cramped or cozy? Not sure...but the food is really good.

We were shocked to get a table during the US Open! We have liked this place on past visits. And my husband can get beef on wick, like in Buffalo. They have lots of TVs, lots of golf stories. Sit outside if you want. Menu...More

Been here before and had a much better experience. Arrived at 1130am opening time and was told they would be opening in about 20 minutes. Came back and the wait staff was pretty abrupt. Not many people dining at that time yet and felt that...More

I like the Darling House Pub but don't love it. The bar is fantastic but seating in an upright booth longer than five minutes can be very uncomfortable. Outdoor seating is tiny but comfortable and gives you a chance to unwind and watch the world...More
