Went with the family last weekend. All our meals were delicious. Some errors with the ordering but quickly fixed without hassle . Nice cosy atmosphere. Will return as the food alone was enough to bring us back.

Eggs bennie/burgers/chicken...all well presented but the big test is taste. Fantastic!!... The staff were great..all smiles and the food came well before the usual starvation wait we have endured in other places. They want to feed you, not fill you with alcohol. Changed menu to suit individual tastes as well..primo!!!!

We stayed on campsite near the ugly duck and choose the place from the walking distance. The interior is ordinary like country site and you feel like near your home in pub. The waiter very friendly and took the time with us. We sit on the restaurant side where the menu are spoken to you (quite small) means also easy... More

My meal did not impress me. It was expensive for a pub venue, and I did not receive food as stated in the menu. (The vegetables were definitely not nice, or as described). I mentioned this when paying at the bar, and my request to tell the chef was not well received. The room is very ordinary for the price... More

After a high recommendation from a friend, my wife & I tried Ugly Duck for dinner while in New Plymouth. The steak was delicious, and my wife's chicken dish was also delicious.

Having drinks and a catch up with old friends. Booked here for dinner and was not disappointed. Lovely waitress to go with the great food. She has some memory for what meals where for what guest. You make really good coffee too, no bitter taste even without sugar. Made the end of the meal. Will be back here for sure.

Booked the Ugly Duck private room for our 40th wedding anniversary evening with around 20 family and friends. We had ordered 3 different platters to come out first for nibbles for everyone and they were totally superb. Everyone raved about them and that kicked off a great night. The meals were all really great and hugely enjoyed by all. The... More
