This is our first visit here. We pass it regularly on our travels and had earmarked it at some stage for a visit, as it was always busy, so obviously very popular. As you would expect, along with the thatched roof go the low beams...More

Special event last night, and stunning 😀 Fantastic Fruits de Mer. Fantastic lobster. Fantastic pud and fantastic wine. And they gave us a lift home because the weather was bad. Never disappoints!

A cosy and friendly 16th Century thatched freehouse with fantastic views of the Horton Folly Tower (with a circular walk to the tower starting from Drusilla's car park). We serve fresh and, if possible, locally sourced produce prepared from scratch in our own kitchens. A range of menus are available from Bar Snacks to our A La Carte with regular special offers. We serve a good selection of wines and Real Ales. Drusilla's also has a function room available for special occasions and weddings, and two state of the art luxury shepherd's huts for those wishing to stay the night with king sized beds, ensuite bathrooms and heating(really warm and cosy even in the snow)- the ultimate glamping experience - read our reviews!
