We last stayed a couple of years ago and returned in January for a short stay. I am glad to stay it hasn't lost any of its charm and with a new menu, dash of paint and a spruce up of the bathrooms its looking better than ever. This pub is without doubt the best in the Cotswolds - great... More

The Wild Duck is an ‘oldy worldly’, quant if not quirky Cotswold Pub / restaurant with rooms. With a roaring open fire it was very welcoming. The pub boasts a good selection of real ales along with a good selection of wines from all over the world... they even do cocktails for £8.00. The restaurant seating is rustic but functional......

My girlfriend and I booked a 2 night stay here and were not disappointed in any way. We stayed in the Chinese room, which was gorgeous. Lovely bath, comfy bed and lots of character. Staff were very polite and friendly and food was really great.

I didn't stay overnight at the hotel so can't comment on the rooms. However, did grab a dinner there. Ordered the pork belly and found it delicious. The waitresses were courteous and helpful. The restaurant decor do looks interesting with animal trophy heads on the wall.

Whilst the exterior and interior of this pub is quintessentially English - and exudes an abundance of charm, unfortunately its service and food are no way up to par. Recently we visited for Sunday lunch. The restaurant seemed relatively quite, with the majority of tables around us remaining empty for the duration of our meal. The staff seemed to be... More

We booked in for two nights a birthday treat from a well known online voucher company. The pub looks lovely from outside but inside you are greeted by spooky old portraits and animal heads on the walls. The bar and restaurant are dark n dingy and staff were really not very customer focused. We were disappointed with our room not... More

We stayed for two nights over the New Year with three dogs in two rooms. We could not have been made more welcome, the food was very good, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Clearly the place was popular with the locals - a good sign!... More

We had a family meal here one evening a few days ago. The pub looks great from the outside and inside - a quintissential English pub. I was looking forward to good beer but was served a pint the barman admitted may be "off" - vinegar probably tastes better. The food was average, beef chewy. And to cap it all... More
