Lovely Hideaway

Just returned from an evening at the Strawbury Duck where we were had a lovely meal and overnight stay. Hidden near the reservoir it is a great base for a walking weekend. Several pubs within walking distance but the Strawbury Duck seemed to be popular with locals and visitors alike. Good range of... read more

What we love most about this place - the food is high standard, the setting is lovely especially in winter when the fires are lit. The pub accepts taste card and so it is even better when you get discount! What we are not so keen on - sometimes there can be a long wait for food. There doesn't always... More

We went here last Sunday as a treat for the kids and a walk round the reservoir. We bought a round and ordered our food at the bar. We cleared our own table and asked for cutlery and fresh napkins which was met with a frown from a brown haired waiter, who was as miserable as sin. The food took... More

One of our favourite places at the moment. Good food, good beer, good service. Bit of a sod to get too, car park is tight, and can get very busy so booking is a must.

Great place off the beaten track! Very friendly service on aThursday night. Pan fried duck was absolutely delicious, very tender and served in tasty jus. Fillet steak was nicely cooked and served with hand cut chips, tomato and onion rings. Summer pudding was also delicious for dessert. Good atmosphere and well worth a visit!

Sunday Lunch was delicious and came with a dessert with an additional price of less than £3. The live music on a Sunday was something unique to this pub and really made a normal sunday something special Wil be returning very very soon!
