Mid week revisit decent food

We have been to the strawberry duck quite a few times with varied results. The pub itself is fabulous great atmosphere and dog friendly. I've come to the conclusion now that it's best to visit when they aren't very busy it would seem that they can't cope or don't have enough experienced staff... read more

We came to the strawbury duck on Sunday the 22nd March at approx 7pm. Food is served until 8. We ordered a roast beef dinner, chicken burger and cheese pie totalling around £40. We ordered two bottles of red wine. When the food arrived the roast had a Yorkshire pudding that could have used as a missile it was that... More

Quite hidden but just off Entwistle Railway Station. I went for the Lamb Sunday Roast and it was absolutely perfect and they have a great selection of beers. It's dog friendly and even they sell dog food! Sure I'll come back!

This is a little gem ! A traditional country pub in amazingly beautiful scenic surroundings ! Fab food, lovely staff, dog friendly and very cosy. My boyfriend and I along with our puppy often come for walks around the reservoir then into the Duck for food and drink and never disappointed ! Highly recommend !!

We took my grandmother for lunch here on Mother's day. The atmosphere was great, very family friendly and food smelled amazing. They had a guitarist playing live too who was brilliant. We had fish and chips which were excellent but the mushy peas could have been a bit better. I had the strawberry burger which was delicious. Deserts were very... More

Having 'dined' her on a previous occasion and wishing to never, ever go back, I found myself having to attend a meal for a friends anniversary. I gave in to my wife's theory of 'it can't be as bad as it was...surely??' You guessed it, worse if anything! First of all the food was cold and not what you expect... More

This lovely Inn can be found by taking the train from Manchester Victoria. Be sure to let the conductor know that you want to stop at Entwistle. Walk out of the station and there you are, in the car park of The Strawberry Duck! Having been twice to this place, both times on a Saturday, it is advised that you... More
