My husband and I stayed for 2 nights bed and breakfast on 14th and 15th October. We arrived to an open fire, gentle chatter from customers, and a lovely warm glow throughout the vast 16th century inn. We were shown to our room which was in the newer part of the inn (glad as I'm spooked by sleeping in old... More

Overnight stay celebrating an 18th birthday. The rooms were very comfortable and the food was first class. Catered for a party of 30, made a huge effort setting up the tables for the occasion, all the meals came out together and were cooked to perfection. Entertainment was also superb with dancing until the early hours. Delicious breakfast in the morning... More

Having driven past many times it was time to sample the restaurant at The Wild Duck for a family birthday lunch. A simple menu, with few specials accommodated our party. It is a bit pricey, and the imposition of a fixed 10%service charge regardless of the service. Overall, pretty good.

So pleased we didn't make a decision from the reviews - most of them are unfairly critical. We went on courtesy of Wowcher and it was worth every penny. Oozing with character and warm, friendly atmosphere. The staff were lovely and the food was great too. Intend to go again. It would be good for members of public to do... More

If you want pristine, modern, minimalistic and dull then this place is not for you. If however you love olde worlde, quirky, interesting, atmospheric, a place full of character, really really dog friendly then this is for you. My husband and I stayed just for 1 night and had a great time. The bar and restaurant areas are amazing. Old... More

The bed was comfortable and the continental breakfast was good with cereal, fruit, lovely ham and cheese and a nice selection of bread ,croissants etc. As for the room. I would not call a high bed with 4 posts and a rail round the... More

Very surprised that wowcher are even selling deals for this pub/inn. On arrival waited 15 minutes whilst barman was serving drinks, then shown to room, which was advertised as a 'garden room' what a joke, the garden door hadn't been opened since 1563 when it was built or decorated since then. Paper coming off ceiling & walls. Very damp &... More
