Our Chefs at The Drift Pub love what they do and are committed to producing the best quality, freshly prepared, homemade dishes at all times. We hope that you will see their passion for local food reflected in our daily special dishes and seasonal menus. During very busy periods there may be a slight delay on some dishes, as they are freshly prepared they may take just that little bit longer than anticipated.
