As we stayed at The Wild Duck last week end I thought I would check the reviews and found some to be dreadful. Yes I must agree it is rather run down and could do with a make over, but I would not describe it as "filthy".We would never stay in a dirty place. Our room was comfortable,nice fresh bedding,plenty... More

Our room was very shabby, dirty, long hairs in bathroom coiled round a towel! no hand towels, no where to place your belongings, no hook on back of door, sink blocked and tap fitted so low, spout...

We didn't stay but called in for lunch. Excellent beer battered fish, large too! Fries.... not chips big difference! Mushy peas were good. Angus beef burger and the tomato chutney again excellent, came with fries and onion rings. Staff attentive. The inn is lovely and quaint, traditional, atmospheric. Lovely big open fire going too. Can imagine at night it's quite... More

A beautiful pub however service was so slow people actually left the pub. Drinks came after the meal even though ordered together. Food was pricey for mediocre standard served. Could have walked out without paying as service was so slow to even pick up our bill.

Recently spent two nights here on a Wowcher deal, £89, including continental breakfast . The pub is set in a beautiful part of the country with easy access to many surrounding attractions and historic cities. We were made to feel very welcome on our arrival and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The pub does require... More

Probably one of the hardest reviews to write! Stayed there for a couple of nights on a deal through Amazon. £89 for 2 nights in a superior four poster bed, including breakfast (continental only) was excellent value. I certainly would not pay the advertised room rate of £135 per night! The location is beautiful and quiet, but close to the... More

We popped in for a family lunch during a sunny day. The setting is beautiful, the building stunning, the staff ok but no upselling or over assisting anyone. However, everything else goes downhill from there. The place is dirty, uncared for and generally falling apart. I know they are going for the rustic, country, old charm but there are ways... More

I have travelled the country, frequently staying in many a hotel, pub, farm and B&B accommodation in the UK over the last 40 years. I am a senior contributor with Trip Advisor and always try to be fair with my reviews of places. My visit to this establishment brought me to the sad conclusion the the Wild Duck Inn must... More
