We stayed overnight in The Wild Duck, breaking our journey from Fife in Scotland to Hampshire. We had no prior knowledge of the inn - simply chosen it from a web search as it fitted the criteria of old coaching inn with good food and rooms. The bar and restaurant was just what we wanted - roaring log fire in the bar and wonderful food in the restaurant. A good selection of real ale in the bar. The accommodation was located at the top of some very steep stairs - not too much of a problem. Our room was small but quaint - uneven floor and walls but comfortable. It was furnished Asian style with furnishings from the company Lombok. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was windowless and cramped - not one in which you'd want to spend some time pampering. Only adverse comment is that the window frames were completely rotten with one part rotted right through - certainly provided some bracing fresh air. I would say that the overall impression of The Wild Duck was very good and I would recommend a stay there if only for the food. We didn't see the other rooms but the one we were in certainly needed some attention.
