Enjoyed an incredibly unique Sunday brunch at this traditional pub type restaurant. The service was friendly and reasonably fast during a very busy time of day. Food was exquisite with unique choices. Have already recommended this place to other family members and friends.

Great food, great service, and very accommodating to special needs. I am a vegetarian, and even though the menu had no vegetarian entrees, their chef created a delicious meal for me. Definitely recommended if you are in the area.

Mallard cottage is a mix of upscale dining in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. The food is superb and the service is excellent. I enjoyed Cod on my last visit and it was fabulous. The dessert plate for sharing was awesome!

Not certain about the brunch times. We went at dinner time. Pretty certain I saw high chairs there when I went.
