We paid £135 for one night in a superior room .Irritated to find that breakfast although included in the price was only continental and a cooked breakfast was another £8 each. Heaven only knows why I originally paid £135 for a B & B , but having done so I expected a bit of luxury , I am quite happy... More

I must admit after reading so many bad reviews I did start to question whether booking here was a good idea, and after visiting at the weekend, I am now compelled to write my first ever review....and say I really don't know why it deserves such a bad rap! On arrival at the inn, although we had seen pictures of... More

After reading bad reviews regarding the wild duck I thought it cant be that bad! Yes it can!. Our room was small and very dark, the bathroom was not good, the extractor fan was not working, hence mould forming on the ceiling and walls but also the condensation made the floor slippery and dangerous. The bar and restaurant areas were... More

I had been looking forward to an overnight stay here for our anniversary having enjoyed many excellent business lunches here over the years. This was my first visit since the change in management. The standard of cooking is still good but unfortunately the new owners don't seem to have grasped the concept of customer service. I should have realised that... More

Stayed in a so called superior room with a very inferior bathroom,the hair washing facilities advertised was a plastic jug as there was no shower on the bath. The full price for the room was £ 134 and although we paid only half that as part of an offer it was still poor value .

The country style restaurant is very quaint and we loved the bines of hops twisted round the walls, combined with old oil paintings, rich red walls, rustic tables and chairs, candles and low beams. It was all very relaxed and welcoming. The inn states the restaurant ‘specialises in fresh, seasonal fare’ and the food was utterly delicious. For starters I... More

staff very friendly, room clean and comfy, bathroom clean but tired, lovely old building with good food and beer, continental breakfast very basic, walls too thick for good wifi in the rooms but all in all very pleased for the price paid and would return.

When i booked a room at The Wild Duck Inn for my partner and myself and then checked the reviews i must say i was thinking about cancelling. I am so glad i didn't! We arrived and a lovely gentleman checked us in to our room (room 10). A spiral staircase led us to the room which was lovely! It... More

I had an old school friend over from Dubai who had her birthday whilst in the UK. I contacted the Wild Duck as she had several friends flying in so I needed a number of rooms as well as lunch etc. All at the gathering were blown away by the physical charm of the pub, enjoyed all of the food...

First of all, just to address the negative reviews. I think some people think every single pub in the Cotswold's is going to be a gastro Heston-inspired super fancy pub. The WIld Duck is a pub and an exceptional one at that. My Ribeye was cooked perfectly and for once; I actually enjoyed pub wine. It was also nice to... More
