Our recent visit to The Blue Mallard came about as we had vouchers for another restaurant that unfortunately had ceased trading the week before. In a surprising and fantastically kind gesture, The Blue Mallard said they would honour the full value of those vouchers. The menu offered a great selection of appealing dishes and the Flatiron steak certainly didn't disappoint.... More

I visited The Blue Mallard with family and was quite surprised having never been before. The staff were attentive yet not intrusive. Food was served in good time and enjoyed by most. Out of 5 I must be the picky one as I wasn't totally satisfied by the beef, a little too undercooked for my liking however the veg and... More

This special menu ranks as one of the best meals we've had for quite a while. We were greeted on arrival with a glass of fizz and some tasty canapes, the arancini were particularly good. This was followed by an 'amuse bouche' of leek and potato soup. We both had the home smoked duck breast as a starter which was... More

Today my sister and I visited The Blue Mallard for some lunch. We were greeted and seated at a lovely table by a window with a view of the canal below. We ordered the maple gammon with chips, buttered peas and a crispy poached egg. There was quite a wait to be served with our meals, over and above consideration... More

Visit a while ago for a burger & a sandwich - but impressed by a 'proper' lunch today. Thought the leek & cheese rissole with the roast chicken was excellent. Gammon, egg & chips was 2 excellent thick-cut pieces of gammon with an egg in breadcrumbs (presumably poached initially & then deep fried). Great value with a couple of soft... More

Visited the Blue Mallard on a Saturday evening in January for my Dads 50th birthday. We have visited here many times previous and is defiantly one of our favourite places around for a special occasion meal. We had booked for 30 so also provided a pre order, starters included; pate (my favourite place for this), black pudding, ham hock and... More

Six of us went here for a Sunday lunch without booking but were early enough to get a table. The menu was varied for Sunday, usual roasts but other interesting dishes. Good choice of excellent starters. The staff were very pleasant, helpful and welcoming without being over bearing, just the right touch. The food was excellent, fresh, well cooked with... More

You think you know what you have ordered until the food arrives, then think again, the presentation is amazing, creative and diverse, always with a 'wow' factor, Now I can't wait to see what it will look like. The setting next to the canal, the outlook and the high beamed airy room and excellent service all add to the experience.

Thank lychris3
