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.

Always a pleasing experience at the Dabbling Duck. Mark and his team are always very welcoming. The food and environment are highly recommended.

The online ordering service is not straight forward. We weren't provided with any instructions on how it worked, not even simple basic directions. I honestly think it would be much more simple to just take an order.

We had a fab evening at the Dabbling Duck.. they have done a great job of making it enjoyable eating outside! An open tent but plenty of heaters, so was really cosy. So glad to be able to return😊

Service was very quick and easy. We sat in the garden marquee on a sunny Sunday afternoon - the food was excellent and a good choice on the menu.

A amazing spot in a beautiful little village. My partner and I visited on the last night of our holiday and were blown away by the food and the atmosphere, we wish we'd come sooner!

I have rated lower for service and atmosphere but to be fair I think the reason for my lower score are because of the restrictions posed by the virus. We were in the marquee (which unfortunately was still very cold - not your fault). Staff were doing their best in the circumstances and were very friendly

Although eating outside under canvas, we appreciated the heaters that kept as warm and the complementary blankets. The staff was very attentive and helpful, the menu simple but delicious as always and the atmosphere lovely. Can’t wait to come back!

5 of us enjoyed lunch on Saturday which was delicious. We flew up from Surrey especially to celebrate our freedom again and there could not be a better venue for the occasion!

Certain staff members were unhelpful, rude and passive aggressive when we spoke to them. Long waiting times for drink and food with a lot of staff standing about seemingly not doing very much. Food and drink is very good in a nice setting. Online ordering system is not fit for purpose. If I want to order a drink, I shouldn’t have to take half an hour to set up an online account, input card details, then wait another 20 minutes for it to arrive.

A great meal, from the chicken wing and soup starters to the rump, wings and turkey schnitzel burger mains. Service was friendly and efficient, for both drinks and food. A great start to our family Christmas. Have a super rest Dabbling team! x
