Friday evening, 7-15pm. This place has more front than Harrods! Chintzy style décor and mirrors everywhere. Anyway, we didn't come for the décor, just something to eat.

Last minute decision to book a table for 5pm. Fortunately they had a space. Decor is very interesting if you are a middle eastern potentate, is unusual and a definite conversation starter. May need a little TLC in places. Great atmosphere, good outside spaces when the weather is kind.Staff are attentive and friendly. Service is not rapid but the slight... More

Wow, thank you for your great review and your five star rating. We are currently in the process of a little TLC here and there and are decorating different areas of the pub as we speak, our new wall paper is definitely a conversation starter and we love it and we hope you do too.

Lovely country pub placed handily at the end of a nice walk from Vicar Water. Doggy friendly with lots of water bowls dotted around the outside seating area, which is a good size and needed on a warm spring day, it was pretty busy with families, dog walkers and cyclists. I had whitebait from the nibbles menu and have to... More

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We do get extremely busy outside when the sun is shining and are thrilled we get such a mix of different people. Sorry you did not enjoy your whitebait in the bread crumbs, but pleased you felt it was still good value for your money. I will pass your comments on to... More

Stayed here for lunch on a sunny day. Random first visit. Restaurant / pub seems like it's trying too hard with its 'style' thats the biggest mistake. Honestly the decoration is hideous and weird; too many lights in many shapes and colours, mirrors all over the place freaking us out, crazy couches and other decorations making no sense. The same...

We appreciate our décor is not to everyone's taste but thank fully it is to many of our customers, who love our décor. We have no intentions of taking it down a notch, or to be simple. We enjoy that we are different and we like "our style". I am sorry you feel you had too much meat on your... More

I went one Friday evening. In the past the place has been heaving. The Friday evening in march I was there it was barely half full.This says a lot in itself. What has happened I thought? Well you have only to look at the staff. Customer service was poor particularly behind the bar and the waiting staff. Have they had... More

We are very lucky to have such a large pub and be extremely busy most of the time. However occasionally we may be a little quieter than at other times. Thank fully we know it has nothing to do with out hard working staff. All our staff are trained and many have been with us a long time. There is... More

Following a disappointing visit to this restaurant in February we again tried it over the Easter break whilst in the area with friends. The restaurant is bright and quirky and menu extensive. We arrived during the value menu was available (4-6pm). We found the food to be good value for money. I would visit the restaurant again

We went here as a couple, the food took almost an hour to arrive and the restaurant was hot and stuffy. After an hour when the food arrived it was plain and boring i ordered a beef burger and fries and it was dry and had no flavour. My partner ordered steak and that tasted slightly better but again quite... More

Thank you for your review. Your review does not state when you visited the Dog and Duck so unfortunately I cannot look in to your visit. Our food is freshly prepared and at peak times you can wait up to an hour for your food which it does state on our menu. However this is only at really busy periods... More

It looked like we were in for a super evening as we walked through the door into a opulently decorated pub/restuarant. It started well. All meals on menu sounded excellent so difficult to choose. Decisions made, order placed, taken by a very pleasant and friendly waitress - over 45mins later food arrived served by a surly young lady who practically... More

The food was good apart from the prawn linguine which was very sweet and inedible. The staff exchanged it for me with no problem. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.
