A group of 10 of us came here for drinks and dinner while on a weekend away in July 2016. I'd booked quite far in advance and as there was already another large group booking for that evening, I had to take the available time slot that was given to me — but that was fine, we just planned our...

Popped in earlier this week for lunch. Nice options for the wine and beers, but the food was a bit of a let down. It was ok - that's it - nothing amazing. Limited choice and I would say slightly overpriced for the quality served. The place itself is quirky, albeit a little dirty. The staff were great though.

On entrance poorly laid out with students blocking path to bar. Surroundings drab dirty and bland. Tables not cleared when vacated. Lack of bar staff non of which could change a barrel. One bar lady walked past a table for an hour and never cleaned empty glasses and food. Glad not a local would go elsewhere. Will try again in...

The first thing to say is generally the food here is very good. Short Rib Beef dish was excellent, and the Lambs Liver too. Wasn't so keen on the Steak/Frites. Asked for Medium but it was more like medium rare, no worries, although a little tough, it was ok. On the whole the staff are very helpful, but we felt...

I heard of this place from a friend and I was not disappointed. The pub is very quirky with the decor having a vintage/old world look with a hint of an Alice in Wonderland feel. Whilst the beer selection (draught) wasn't massive they did have a great range of good tasting beers such as Brooklyn lager. They also had a...

We had heard great things about the Wild Duck and weren't let down. A super (but be warned, not cheap!) Sunday lunch in lively decorated surroundings. Great selection of drinks, great menu and attentive service.

Excellent food, great family meal. lovely crab for starters, steaks and pies for mains. Only downside a bit pricey and once you move away from the fire a bit chilly on a winters day! Staff were great though and bought us over a heater to warm us all up!

We booked last minute following the good reviews and it was a great choice, highly recommended it! It is a lovely countryside pub with nice atmosphere, good ales, very good food and a nice fireplace. The squid as a starter was good but the mains to follow were excellent. Local fish and chips - a big portion with homemade like...

I went to the Wild Duck with some friends for an evening meal yesterday and the food was lovely so no complaints about that but unfortunately the service was not good especially towards the end. They told us it was last orders at 10:30pm which we were all very surprised. We assumed at first that they just wanted to clear...

Average food Poor service (£24.00 added to the bill with 2 staff running the whole restaurant gives very little service!) The drinks are just day light robbery... It's a pub not a london restaurant! Unless this PUB pulls its socks up we won't be returning soon...
