We think it’s the best Sunday Roast locally. Great food but also a relaxed and child friendly vibe

Food was good. Apart for the corn in the cob. Very chewy and not tasty. Service wasn't the best. And even though we knew we had to leave at 8. The waitress interrupted us at 7:45 with the bill. Not very happy with the service.

Good choice from food and drink menu. Food was delicious. My only criticism was that happy hour prices wasn't explained to us when we ordered two glasses of red wine. We assumed it was 2 for 1 and we were shocked to find individual prices on the bill, although reduced price it should have been made known to us when we ordered it.

The toilets were absolutely disgusting. Most of the ladies toilets were blocked with tissue or didn't have any in. The water was not running in the taps and some stupid person had bought what they thought was an anti-bac gel but in fact, it was soap so then you had to go to the gents to wash it off. The hand dryer was not working either. Diabolical!!

You get a lot of food for your money however, the service quality was lacking.

My partner and I are regular visitors at The Duck, we love the vibe and the service and the staff are all brilliant. We have to say a special thank you to Max who always takes such good care of us, especially last night when we had such a big group with us

I enjoy going to the Dancing Duck. Usually at lunchtime with work colleagues but have also been there in the evening. Can't recall a single occasion where I have had a reason for complaint. Always reliable and one of my favourites.

I visit in Westbourne regularly and love coming here it’s got a fantastic friendly atmosphere, staff very friendly and efficient, I booked a table which was ready with no fuss as I had guests, they were very impressed and the duck has a very modern twist to a regular pub / bar , great experience and will be using it in the future thank you .

I’ve visited The Duck on many occasions, for drinks and meals for quite a few years now and have always enjoyed the atmosphere, food etc. Unfortunately I didn’t have a good time just before Christmas. After our meal we had drinks in the bar... where I was relatively certain that a member of the bar staff had pocketed cash that I had handed over in payment. I thought I would let the person in charge know... after spotting someone who I’d seen many times before, I asked are you in charge? To which he smirked and said, maybe?! I said, no really- are you in charge? He replied, F*** you! Obviously I wasn’t impressed...Even more so when I found out later on that he’s actually the manager. Disgruntled and insulted, I then spoke to one of the other members of staff who had taken our food orders earlier on in the evening. She was also reluctant to say who was in charge, (I really don’t see the problem with this question?!) I told her what had happened and she said she would get Omar (the manager) to speak to me. He did. A blasé apology of, ‘sorry, I’d just had an argument with someone at the bar’ To which I replied, with all due respect, that’s not my problem, especially when I’m trying to alert you of a possible theft. My friend and I finished our drinks then cut our evening short as by this point I was not only angry but a little hurt. This was my birthday meal out and it was ruined. A half hearted apology and no way of making amends has certainly tarnished my views of visiting The Duck again.
