Welcome to The Broken Drum, Bexley's third micropub. In case you are not familiar of what a traditional ale house is, we: do not have a troll as our bouncer, sawdust covered floors or frequent bar brawls. In fact, despite its name, we encourage good conversation and only sell the finest real ales straight from the cask, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
We are frequently changing our ales so you can be sure there will be something new to try. We hope you will visit for a pint (or three) and enjoy the company.
