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.

I would have previously marked the Duck with 5 stars but I tend to go to have the ribs and the size of the rack of ribs varies and lacks consistency. I went on Thursday and it was the smallest rack I’ve had since going. Still tasted great but it would be better if the size was consistent.

We had our section Christmas lunch at The Duck on 6 December 2018. The meal was great, good quality and quantity and the whole team (18) thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and approachable and the service excellent. Would recommend The Duck to all whether going simply for a drink, a meal or a Christmas do. Very satisfied.

I would say it was slightly pricey but the food was delicious and the servers were very friendly, attentive and approachable. Would definitely go again for the mac n cheese with optional crispy bacon

I hired the room for my birthday night out and I couldn’t be happier. Great music, food and atmosphere. The room was set out nicely with balloons and the fire was lit. We all had a fabulous night and it was lovely to have our own little space. We moved into the bar later on and stayed until closing time. The DJ played the best tunes and we didn’t want to leave. I would definitely book again!

Went to the Dancing Duck with 4 friends for dinner. I can not fault the service but the food was no where near as nice as the Dancing Moose. Will head back there in the future :)
