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.

It was my grandsons birthday so all the family went out for afternoon tea. My grandson is a finicky eater so he had goujons and chips. His food was served on a stand like the rest of us so he didnt feel left out. The...ladies who served us were brilliant and to everyones surprise my grandson wanted more of the same one lady serving us ensured that he got exactly the same again ( The Chef was going to hand make some ) she understood that some children have issues with food which was brilliant. The food was good as always but the staff were excellent and added to the very good time.More

Service on the cool level , Kitchen shall be improved per our thoughts . Ordered starters (no issue) for child and adults, Mains for child and adults (haddock was nice , sides as well - but seafood risotto , that’s another story of todays evening..., definitely not recommended), Just about risotto- feeling as it’s boiled rice placed onto seafood water , where we found it tasteless seafoods. Speaking of visual- that is first time that we’ve seen something like this . Potatoes in risotto ? But why ... Anyway to be honest to the Comfy Duck and great service of Katie B. - it was excluded of the bill . Deserts - great .More

Our second time here for Sunday lunch. The food is exceptional and excellent service. Great value for money at less than £26 for three delicious courses and generous portion sizes. Would highly recommend for Sunday lunch.

Fabulous food and excellent service, great atmosphere and good value for money. My original chosen main course wasn’t impressive as lamb overcooked and waitress insisted I choose something else and extremely apologetic and nice. Chose another dish which was superb! Sometimes things do go wrong...but how you recover is more important - and this team know how to ensure the customer gets the best!More

We chose from the fixed price menu. 2 courses £20, 3 courses £25. Small amount of choice for each course on fixed menu. I chose prawn cocktail and fresh Grimsby haddock. The food was delicious, in beautiful surroundings. The ordinary menu had a good selection...of meals. I highly recommend this restaurant, situated within The Oaklands Hotel.More

Very average. The food is well cooked but have had so much better for the price and other ratings. No WOW factor to anything which surprises me based on reviews.

I went here for mothers day lunch. I opted for the fish and chips as it was either that, a Sunday Roast or the vegan option of stuffed pepper. The food and service were great but I thought the lack of choice was disappointing. I...probably wouldn't go back which is a shame, what can I say, I want more choice!More

My family and I decided to eat at the Comfy Duck last weekend. What a disappointment!. After booking a table , I was shocked to find upon arrival that only one other table was occupied. Therefore I was even more shocked to find the table...we were shown to had not been set. After the table was set by a pleasant waitress, I was not pleased to discover that the cutlery was dirty. A basic mistake! We chose Thai fishcakes which certainly did not appear to be homemade, arrived with a couple of sprigs of rocket. Quite frankly, I have had better tasting fishcakes from Tesco's. We followed this by roast turkey . Although the food was ok, it was nothing to write home about. Considering how it is portrayed on the website. it was nothing out of the ordinary. Also the gravy, although it was tasty it was definitely not turkey gravy, therefore it seemed alien to the meat. The Manager did not appear to acknowledge the fact we were seated in his restaurant , even when he helped to bring the meals to the table, a hello would have been nice. After all it is the hospitality industry and there are many more restaurants within the local area needing peoples custom. I feel it's such a shame as it used to be such a nice place to eat. Come on Comfy Duck pull your socks up. Unfortunately we will not be rushing backMore

First visit since last lockdown and good to see that the food was as good as ever and the staff as friendly. A bit quiet, but will liven up when final lockdown restrictions are lifted we're sure. Well done! 😊
