The food is very average. We ordered ‘crusty bread’ which was a sliced white and wholemeal loaf of Hovis, and cost £7! Main took a long time to come, and was average at best.

as members my husband and I are frequent visitors to the Plumpy Duck, we`ve enjoyed light snacks, afternoon tea, lunch and dinner in the past and because of this, we didn't hesitate to make a large booking for a family birthday. The food, staff and service didn't let us down, everyone had a lovely meal and enjoyed the day.

Had a lovely meal spoiled somewhat by being asked to give up our table about two minutes after finishing our sweets. At no time were we told the table would only be available for an hour!! Very poor finish to our night.

Lovely lunch. Food was amazing and definitely will be back for more! Burger was massive. Nice relaxing atmosphere, love the decor. Service could have been 5 star but after leaving more than a 10% tip without as much as a thank you or have a nice day when leaving - was a little disappointing. Will be back though.

One of the worst dining experiences we have ever had. Can't believe there were doing mistakes made. The menu was limiteddue to 'running out'. Starter was cold and had to be sent back. No ice-cream for dessert. All in all,a very poor experience.

Dear Hayley, May I firstly apologise for disappointing experience and thank you for bringing this to our attention. Due to heavy demands over the school holiday period, we failed to gauge the level of demand over the 4 day holiday which resulted in the poor selection of food on offer at this time. I can only once more sincerely apologise for this. Kind regards, The Plumpy Duck Team

Restaurant wasn’t busy but had to wait a while for drinks and food. Also no Parmesan cheese for the pasta dish my daughter and I had. Had to ask for some cheddar instead.

Thought we were going to be served the Christmas menu on Boxing Day but instead a limited menu offered. No indication on Christmas leaflet that this was the case. Misleading. We were the only customers over lunch. Would have gone elsewhere. What food we did get was pleasant enough but really not what we thought we’d be getting as our family Christmas meal together.

The decor and surroundings are great. I don’t like to point out issues, but in order to address them you need to know. The whipped goats cheese starter comes with one sorry looking small piece of bread, you need to add more. The chicken terrrine starter comes with a slice of lettuce and one halved cherry tomato, with no crackers or bread...it would be much better if you added something to accompany the terrine. The roast turkey, due to being dry, could do with extra gravy being served a few mins after it being requested...12 mins is too long to wait. The blade of beef was superb.
