“Just try it. You won't be disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Returned to Blue Mallard last night with my sister. We had a travelzoo voucher and were looking forward to another good meal. We were not disappointed in any way. Restaurant was really full, atmosphere warm and relaxing. Food was of usual high standard, beautifully presented. Highly recommend the ribeye steak. Well worth the supplement. No room for dessert after two delicious courses. The two waitresses were attentive,friendly smiling and worked so hard to seat and serve everyone. Well done to you both. We will be back- travelzoo voucher or not. Excellent lunchtime offers as well. hard to see why anyone could give this little gem a bad review- based on our experience- it is brilliant.

“Tastetastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Visited this establishment soon after it opened. It was mid-week, wet, cold and dark outside so we could not enjoy the canal view from the window seat we had. Because of the 2 aforementioned, there were only a couple of other people in the place so it lacked atmosphere and was cold, but we were soon warmed by a heater placed close to our table. The menu is somewhat limited but that can be a good thing, food was really good - point proven, less is more! Everything was cooked to perfection and well presented. Overall we enjoyed our visit and planned to go again until we were misinformed that it was no longer there! (We do not live in the area). On recently visiting the area and another restaurant we were delighted to find that it is still there and plan on visiting again soon as The Blue Mallards reputation has grown and is good amongst the locals. Would recommend a visit, especially in daylight if you like to watch the world glide by whilst enjoying a relaxed pace of service for the very good, freshly cooked food.

“Lovely place - friendly faces - tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I love lunch here as it is situated on the side of the canal so you can watch the barges go past as you dine. Food great!

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Tried this local restaurant a few times over the past twelve months and have always been impressed by the quality of the food.
The menu is not extensive but is mostly local produce and is cooked and presented well.
Good value for money!

“Great food,great staff,great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Returning to the Blue Mallard yet again. Booked the entire restaurant for a family party between Christmas and New Year. Chris was fantastic at making sure the menu was exactly what we wanted. Ambience on the night was terrific. Decor subtle but stunning. Food of the highest quality from the plentiful canapés served with Pimms to the mouthwatering desserts.All staff so attentive, helpful and obliging. Can't understand how anyone can give this place a bad review. Have dined here several times previously and had no hesitation in hiring the whole place for our "bash". Was delighted that our evening was such a success. Guests who had not dined here before we're blown away by the food and the restaurant itself and I know there will be many returning guests from our party. As for me ...I have travel zoo vouchers which will soon be redeemed. See you all soon then!! Can't wait!
