Nicholson’s Pubs are known for their individual style, exciting stories, and charming personalities — and The Drum & Monkey is certainly no exception, with a selection of glorious G&Ts, cask conditioned ales, and brewery fresh Innis and Gunn Tank Lager direct from Inveralmond Brewery in Perthshire.

The Drum and Monkey was a former a bank building, and retains an air of grandeur. Erected in 1924 by the eminent architect Andrew Balfour, our pub’s style has been compared to classical American architecture of the time. Our location on St. Vincent Street, marks the British sea victory over the French off the coast of Spain in 1797.

Our famous name is said to derive from the travelling showmen who would tour the country with performing monkeys which would often play on a drum.

You can be sure to enjoy your food, complemented with a perfectly poured cask ale, a glass of fine wine, or even a taste of our extensive whisky and gin collections.
