This so called gastro-pub was not really what i was expecting. A review i read made it sound classier, when in actual fact, its more of a cosy pub, in a fairly remote location, with newly decorated rooms. I was particularly impressed with the sizeable bathroom, complete with bathtub! However, i feel the rooms would benefit from some kind of... More

Went for a family meal ordered from the menu but were then told that several items we had ordered were not available. On a Sunday there were no Sunday lunches as they were all sold out. There were no garlic mushrooms, no hanging kebabs, no strawbury duck burgers. We felt like saying tell us what you have and we will... More

Had booked a table for 5 plus a dog on Sunday teatime after a lovely walk around one of the resevoirs. We had an extra 3yr old with us, but they easily accomodated us with an extra chair as the table could seat 6 anyway. However when we came to order, there was so much we couldnt have as they...

Went to the Strawberry Duck with my wife and young son, as a bit of a family day out to somewhere my wife hadn't been before. I must say I was a little disappointed overall for a few reasons. 1. Every table barring two was reserved as 12pm, however when we sat down the place was completely dead? Not sure... More

Me and my Partner stayed here on Friday as it was her birthday, the location is fab if you want to get rid of all the city air and walk by the water or in the woods then come back to this pub for a meal and a drink. We stayed in the Eider bedroom which was warm and comfortable... More

The atmosphere here is second to none. Walker and dog friendly and just a real welcoming nice pub. alas I've eaten here a few times and whilst not dreadful by any means, I would have to say it's only average grub. The pub itself is well worth a visit

We heard how good it was, so decided to try it we drove there, unfortunately as we tried to get there the road was that narrow, with road works we could not get through and had to reverse back about 300 yds, never again, very hard to get to by road from our end.

We had reserved a table for 12 people. When we arrived there were only 10 seats at our table. It was no problem as some of our children sat on the table of four next to us. We ordered a bottle of wine from the wine list to be told that it was out of stock, so we had to... More
