After reading a lot of good reviews about the Drunken Duck we decided during a few days holiday in Bowness to pay it a visit for lunch. The Drunken Duck is about 2 miles out of Ambleside heading towards Hawkshead and is in the middle of nowhere, the views are lovely. The pub / restaurant are beautifully decorated with a nice cosy feel whilst still being stylish. Even in the day it is dimly lit with candles on the tables and the fire roaring which give the whole place a really nice feeling. The lunch menu isn’t huge but had a nice choice from main meals through to sandwiches. Yes it isn’t cheap but the food is lovely as well as the atmosphere and setting. My husband had the steak and chips and I had the mackerel on sour dough with a portion of chips. Our food was delicious and the portions were big. Most of the food is locally sourced and the menu tells you who their suppliers are. The food was very tasty and well presented. There is a great selection of wines and beers and it’s all nicely presented. The pub is also dog friendly which is nice and even though it is quite posh it doesn’t feel stuffy just nice and relaxed. As a special treat it was somewhere lovely to go for a really nice lunch and I would recommend it if you are in the area. We would like to go back and maybe stay over there and try it for dinner.
