Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our first visit under the new management. Nice to see a busy service on a winter mid-week day. Overall I would say it was not quite as good as before, but, the standard was very high. I deliberately chose the hake main because it was...a classic. Now not so many elements and not quite the crispness to the skin but still very enjoyable. Service was excellent and well paced. No tip is mandatory… you choose. I like that as it is a sign of confidence. Also the menu on all 3 courses has a very good range meaning those staying in the area could have meals there on consecutive nights that varied greatly. I can see us coming back.More

First visit in a while and everything was exceptional. We stayed in The Feathered Nest room on NYE and the room was beautiful, comfortable (the biggest and comfiest bed) and sumptuous in every aspect. Dinner was top notch, lovely wine selection and the breakfast outstanding....Nothing was too much trouble for Rachael and the team, completely accomodating in every aspect. 100% would recommend staying or visiting for dinner/breakfast and hope to be back in the not too distant future.More

First time visiting since new management. Early supper for NYE. Very friendly service only criticism would be service was too quick but didn't spoil the evening . Starters were tasty if a little small . Superb roast pork and beef for main course.

Just stopped in on the off chance for an evening meal, so glad we did . What a find ! The landlady was friendly and helpful and the food was fantastic. We loved it so much we persuaded her to let us go back for...breakfast. They haven’t had the Inn very long, although they have been in the business quite awhile you could tell they love it.More

The place is under new management and we went along with high hopes that it would be as good as before, but next time we may look at going elsewhere instead, sadly. The pigeon breast starter was plain and simple and very nice though the...mushroom underneath was very greasy. Just the right amount of pink to keep the meat tender. The liver was overcooked, with no pink and therefore rather too firm, not good. This should be easy to get right. Also plain and simple with good red cabbage and mash, it could have been pepped up a bit with seasoning/spice. Sticky toffee pudding with generous amount of pecans was great, while the hazelnut brulée was not a happy combination. The service was fine and friendly, except that when the waitress asked after our meal she just said "OK" and moved on to both my comment that the liver could have been cooked less and my husband's that it was overcooked. A training point perhaps. For the price we would have liked proper napkins, perhaps a sweetmeat at the end, and the bill presented better than a rolled up scrap!More

We have been coming to the Duck for years and always loved the food so we’re concerned when it changed hands.. there was no need. We ate lunch on Saturday with friends, menu and food exceptional. We then booked in for Sunday lunch , the...first time I can ever remember having proper crunchy roast potatoes, I can honestly say it was the best Sunday lunch I have ever had eating out, the whole lunch was glorious. We then ate again the following Wednesday where again the food was fabulous. I am also pleased to note the Duck is more dog friendly with more tables to accommodate dogs and I understand the bedrooms will also accept dogs once refurbished. Management and staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very attentive. We cannot wait to return soon. Well done to the new management yiu have done a fabulous job with menu, staff, food and we love the new decor 😊More

I'd agree. We popped in for lunch with our 2 dogs and there were already a couple of dogs in there and a couple more came in while we were eating. There is a separate area for folk who don't appreciate dogs.
