About The Dabbling Duck

The Dabbling Duck pub was opened in 2006 as the result of a tireless community action group and a far-sighted local authority's 6 year campaign to prevent the beautiful old building (previously the Rose and Crown pub) from being converted into housing.

The Dabbling Duck now plays a vital part in the heart of the local community and is a focal point for the village. The owners regularly eat and drink at the pub with their friends and colleagues.

Afternoon Tea is served daily 15.00 - 17.00

I was not aware that dogs would be allowed in a restaurant, (and there were many), the waitress said they were under every table. While eating I was not pleased to have a large Labrador size dog rub its rear end against my leg, and then have two of them stretch out across the floor walkway directly behind my chair. We were told if we should come again to ask for a table in the back room, pity this is not publicised when you book.

We were a large family party of twenty adults and eight children for Saturday lunch! Mark, Rachel and the team were efficient, kind and helpful, making us all feel comfortable and relaxed. The children had a wonderful time in the garden on the play equipment. Thank you for making our special celebration so special.

Friendly and prompt service. Comfortable, spacious and well set out dining areas. Delicious food, although the black pudding was over cooked. Very enjoyable experience. Will return soon.

Gournard portion rather small. You need to do something about the number of flies! Very off putting but not quite as bad as our last visit in July. Staff very friendly

My first visit and I have to say with total honesty this was the BEST pub meal I’ve had for many years. The flavours were to die for. FANTASTIC! I’ll be back.

pleasant lunch. only complaint I have... They gave us the wrong sauce and one of the staff members had a rather hostile attitude towards our request to change it.
