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!

It's our birthday!

Four years ago today, with some pant wetting trepidation, we threw open the doors to The Muddy Duck for the first time, whilst not having the foggiest how to run a pub and restaurant and feeling pretty shocked when people actually turned up to try us out!

We have continued to be blessed and humbled to have so many of you become loyal regulars and there's a definite Muddy family that our team love welcoming time and time again.

The support has been fantastic. We're never going to get it right all the time ( the keyboard warriors on TripAdvisor readily remind us!), but we've got the same attitude as when we opened on day one - trying to give everyone a positive experience from start to finish, in a relaxed, atmospheric environment, enjoying good food and service, whilst happily sending ourselves up occasionally.

For fear of being likened to Ms Paltrow by harping on and on, we'll draw the gushing to a close, but suffice to say each year is a milestone for us and we thank each one of you for getting behind us and from we owners, extend a huge thank you to our incredibly loyal, hardworking team who make it happen day in, day out - from Hannah and Jack and their front of house team, Simon and the rest of the kitchen, Iain for doing a sterling job at managing the cellar, Simon and Adi who keep the garden and surrounds neat and tidy, Carol who keeps us looking like a bright florist even on the darkest days, pot washers, cleaners - you name it, it's a full production and everyone is irreplaceable in their own way.

(Oops, we didn't draw that to a close too promptly after all...)
