Three Rooms, Three Atmospheres
DAVID ARMSTRONG ROOM
Upon entering the Fife 'n Drum, the David Armstrong room will be on your left. The David Armstrong Room offers a dining experience that is casual by day, and dramatic by night. With its high ceilings, large fireplace, brick and wood paneled decor, this room is used for lunch and dinner each day. During the cooler months, the table next to the Fireplace, is the most sought-after seat. On the walls are the prints of late local artist, David Armstrong. These marvelous prints are a tribute to Kent: several are favorite local spots of the artist in and around town: "Numeral Rock" and "Preservation" while the portraits are of people whom the artist grew up with, "The Old Man," his father Bill Armstrong, a legendary master at Kent School, "Eric Sloane" weatherman, fellow artist and collector of Americana, and Bart Segar, the heir to the 200 acre dairy farm located on Segar Mountain now known as Rte 341. At night, owner Dolph Traymon enhances your dining experience and plays piano on his Steinway piano bar. Have a favorite song? He's only too happy to play your requests.
ERIC SLOANE ROOM
When you arrive at the Fife, the Eric Sloane Room is located just to the right. The elegant ambiance of the room is the more formal side of the Fife 'n Drum, the original Main Dining Room. The walls are decorated with signed Artist Proofs by the late New England artist Eric Sloane. The beamed low ceiling dining room, a construction style typical of the early 1900's, is now used mostly for private parties, meetings and holiday dinners. In addition, Small Weddings, Private Parties, Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, Conferences, Private Luncheons and Dinners are usually accommodated in this room.
The Glass Room was built in 2003 to celebrate the 30th Annivesary of the Fife 'n Drum. As you walk through the David Armstrong Room, it is located on the south side of the building.
With its high ceiling and large glass windows, this dining room is a wonderful addition for lunch, dinner, or small private parties. The fireplace in the winter makes it cozy and warm.
