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.

Farewell Simon!

Last night fellow colleagues, friends, neighbours and regulars gathered to send our Head Chef on his (very!) merry way!

We have Simon to thank for three years of dedicated time fronting our kitchen at The Muddy Duck, responsible for bringing and harmonising a kitchen team together, fusing it with Hannah and Jack's front of house team, turning out consistently great food and being a real asset to our team. Simon represented a Head Chef that could hold a busy, sweltering, stressed kitchen together whilst still being a calm gent (dare we suggest a rare trait?!)!

We're sad to see you go Simon but wish you and Claire all the very best for your new chapter in the big smoke. Having previously spent 6 years under Gordon Ramsey, Simon is returning to the Ramsey fold and will be working at the Savoy Grill, so be sure to book if you want to see this friendly face again!

Our new Head Chef is already in place and has been working with Simon during the transition period and we'll introduce you to him very soon... In the meantime, Simon, thank you - it's been a pleasure, we will miss you but don't be a stranger! From the little village of Hethe, to the big lights of The Strand - versatility at its finest!
