Excellent food, excellent staff I like the hotel, my only problem was they had no spa, but was able to use the near by hotel, the hotel is small and different. I would use them again . Very far from town you will need a car .

We have been to the Wild duck twice in the last few weeks, and I have to say both the lunch and dinner were both outstanding, and the service impeccable. We were told the restaurant is having a refurb soon, even though it has a huge amount of character and country atmosphere now - I am sure it will be... More

Visited The Wild Duck a few years ago and vowed not to again. But we were invited out to lunch here and decided to go. It was very welcoming, the restaurant staff were incredibly helpful. Our main courses were good, especially the Risotto. It is quite dark inside the pub but it is very old so it does look in... More

What a shame. This pub is stunningly beautiful in every way and the food is incredible but sadly it's let down by really bad service, I mean really really bad. It took us two hours to get our mains and although they told us that their till system had crashed we were told again and again "it's on the way".... More

Stopped by for a late lunch on Sunday Staff were extremely attentive and friendly. Absolutely gorgeous setting and interior with stone walls and beams. Menu was varied with some interesting options like wild boar ragu and warm octopus salad. We went for the wild boar ragu and the ox cheek pie and both were absolutely scrumptious. I also asked for...

Absolutely perfect place to go and have perfect food, waiters, ambiance and service. You feel like your in a different world, such charm and character - loved it and will always remember the place. We come while away for my husbands 40th. The young waiter was so attentive. Thank you all for a great find

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A traditional Cotswold Inn with a rich history. Perfect for a Sunday roast or simply a pint of local beer. Ivy droops over the Cotswold stone of this beautiful, sixteenth century coaching inn near Cirencester. Expect proper English, seasonal pub food using the best ingredients we can find.Our lunch and supper menus are deeply rooted in everyone's favourite British classics. Tuck into Pork Belly Confit or Roasted Guinea Fowl Breast or try one of our legendary Sunday roasts which are worth the trip just for the roast alone. ... more   less
