4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

I recently stayed here whilst visiting Guildford.The hotel is an authentic old inn with a few modern extensions.My room was in the annex part.The bed was really,really comfortable,bathroom was huge,power shower brilliant,if any fault it would be heating too warm but hey i can live with that in middle of winter.The pub itself was very clean,beer spot on(if a little expensive?).Whilst i was there i witnessed an angler selling his days catch of rainbow trout to the kitchen....can't get fresher than that!!Staff were very helpful and courteous,all in all i'd reccomend it but be warned,Albury itself is basically just a street.Unless you like quiet walks and fishing,there's very little to do.

Room Tip: try for main building as annex involves very short walk but not good in rain/snow

I took 10 cyclists here for Sunday lunch today and it was a treat. We ended up being fortunate enough to choose a 'hog roast' day and it was absolutely delicious. We arrived at 10 ish to start our ride and the hog was already slowly turning over the oak fire (gave a beautiful smoky oak flavour to the meat), the very friendly manager (?) told us it had been on since 5 am. The service was very good indeed, the staff friendly and smiling and the décor and ambiance excellent. We will definitely be back. Book on a Sunday as it was packed. I can't say about the hotel facilities but I would give it a go based on the restaurant experience!

Could not fault the Drummond arms at all. Stayed in room 6 and it was clean, spacious, cosy and comfy. We arrived at 6pm and was greeted by a welcoming lady who showed us to our room and made sure we were happy. We had a dinner and a few drinks, dinner was lovely and excellent value for money, a bottle of wine a starter to share, mains and a pudding £48! We took a drive into a town called Ripley which I would recommend, a few pubs, little shops and beautiful curry resturant.

Our stay at the Drummond Arms was 100% perfect and we will be returning in summer 2013!

the restaurant and breakfast area was stunning, a blend of traditional and contemporary styling creates a relaxing atmosphere, then when the food arrives with excellent presentation and service, the taste finishes it off, with good local ales to help wash it down.
The accommadation all finished to a high spec, with spacious rooms, tv and all the norm.
A highly recomended trip.

The run down room, excuse last to be refurbished,..Why was bathroom filthy,?nice touch of a light fitting filled with dead flies, broken fittings in shower/bath No excuse,.The only thing was a set of clean sheets & we were tired, Otherwise we would left,. Next No forthcoming excuse for the 1/2 size uncooked sausage & part cooked bacon,...all for a special discounted £75pn, down from £100, I 'm given to believe this place belongs Duke of Northumberland, Very poor showing..Much better deals at our later hotels,

Room Tip: Don't believe evertthing you are told

A glance at the luchtime menu shows 11 choices of starter, 7 choices of sandwiches, and 26 choices of main dishes, plus 'specials'.

"They can't possibly do all that well", I thought, and I was right.

Burger and chips is my default choice when trying somewhere new: If they can get that right, all bodes well for the rest of the menu.

Not so in this case. My burger was tiny, over-seasoned with sage (sage with beef?) and topped by a tomato 'salsa' which seemed to comprise no more than a bit of chopped onion in tomato ketchup. Moreover it was served on a greasy-looking board - my pet hate for pubs trying to get away with stingy portions. Chips were few, and didn't seem freshly-cooked at all.

Looking round the table, those who'd ordered the fish and chips or sandwiches fared slightly better; these looked appetising. One of my group ordered the 'soup of the day' - a poor effort at leek and potato with the colour and texture of nasal mucus. How she ate it I don't know.

The young waiter who served us was perky and friendly, bringing a bowl of water for the dog without us even asking, however the woman behind the bar had a rather sour demeanour - not at all welcoming.

In short, go somewhere else. There are lots of excellent pubs in the area which offer far better food for less. You don't need to waste your time/money on this one.

Just had my sons wedding at the drummond arms. Absolute wonderful day. Jay and his staff were wonderful and could not do enough for us. The wedding breakfast was first class as was the venue. The evening buffet as also first class. Stayed at the hotel as did all the family and the rooms were very nice, clean and very adequate. No complaints at all with anything this was said by all of the wedding party at least 80 people of ages. Thanks again Jay and your staff for all you did. Mother of the groom.
