BOOK OUR BEER GARDEN NOW FROM Monday 12th April

We are now taking beer garden bookings!

You’ve spent most of 2021 going for a “nice walk”, drinking warmish wine you forgot to chill and re-watching Line of Duty, BUT not for much longer.

Our pub is staging a comeback and we’ll be opening our garden from Monday 12th April.

We hope you’re as excited as we are, so start weaning yourself off the loungewear and we look forward to seeing you soon.

If you can’t wait that long, sip on flagship Greene King beers from our Online Beer Shop.

Welcome to the

Drum & Monkey

 

With its pretty white picket fence and lovely hanging baskets The Drum & Monkey is a mid-19th century tavern in the leafy West Midlands village of Dorridge. Surrounded by Warwickshire’s Green Belt the pub sits on the old road to Hockley Heath just outside Solihull not far from the historic landmarks of Packwood House and Baddesley Clinton. A gateway to the Warwickshire countryside The Drum & Monkey is popular with both walkers and cyclists exploring the rural villages of Dorridge Bentley Heath which was once home to Lord Byron and Knowle with its 600-year old church. When the sun shines it’s not unusual to find the beer garden abuzz with ramblers and riders plotting their path over a pint of real ale or something sumptuous off the menu of traditional pub classics. The Drum & Monkey was established in 1860 and has always been a public house. In its early years however it was known as The White Lion Inn. It’s not clear precisely when the name changed but there is photographic evidence of the pub when it was still The White Lion as late as 1930.
