The Muddy Duck is here to make a statement – to offer something a little bit different. So whilst our pub and restaurant live quite happily under one roof, we’re shamelessly two faced in trying to create spaces that contrast one another.


The pub and beer garden are intended as somewhere to enjoy a pint and grab a bite to eat. If you want to opt for a fuller dining experience, our restaurant or terrace is where you should head.

Our focus is wholeheartedly on great quality ingredients throughout, leaving fussy, pretentious menus well alone – to be enjoyed in a relaxed setting, run by a locally grown team!

We make no bones that we’ve done some very deliberate things in the hope we’ll become the best of the brace and to see you returning to us time and time again… And if you think that’s just another piece of PR spiel, we hope we look forward to proving you wrong!

Book with us…

Please give us a call on 01869 278 099 to book a table in The Malthouse restaurant.

Or book online…

WE OFTEN APPEAR FULLY BOOKED ONLINE.  IF YOUR CHOSEN DATE APPEARS FULL, PLEASE CALL US TO SEE IF WE CAN ACCOMMODATE YOU.

NOT MANY PLACES LEFT NOW FOR THE POPULAR LARK RISE BIKE RIDE! SIGN UP TODAY!
*** This year supported by The Muddy Duck ***

The Lark Rise Trail is an off road cycle ride through the lovely countryside that formed the backdrop to Flora Thompson’s classic ‘Lark Rise to Candleford’. See for yourself where Flora lived, went to school and worked as postmistress, all whilst raising vital funds for brain tumour support in the area.

Start your day with a breakfast of champions laid on by The Muddy Duck at the course start - and finish with an afternoon of fete style fun at Mixbury Hall, with food, drink and entertainment to suit the whole family!

Paste the link below into your browser and register today! This is a great event for competitive individuals, couples, groups and families of all abilities.

Entry for the bike ride is £12.50 per adult, £6 per child or £33 for a family of four

Happy Birthday! ...

... To our First Woman (Hannah) and Second Officer (Jack) - a working relationship that's lasted longer than most promises of matrimony (... ok, they don't like each other THAT much!).

But they both have a large chunk of the Duck coursing through their veins and work tirelessly alongside each other in the hope that everyone leaves us having enjoyed their visit. Have a drink (or four... once your paying customers have vacated... and you've checked the bogs... and laid up for tomorrow's service... and done all your paperwork...) on us tonight!
