We visited The Black Swan aka Dirty Duck one lunchtime in February after an enjoyable guide led walking tour of Shakespeare's Stratford.

The food was well prepared, tasty and very reasonably priced.

The Restaurant/Public House has a lovely riverside location - on the Avon near to the RSC - and had attentive helpful staff and was the sort of watering hole with character visitors to these locations are always on the look out for.

It had been recommended by our guide and one bar was crammed with pictures of thespians who had performed in the local theatres with a welcome to the pub given by Judie Dench !

We really enjoyed it here and think you would to.

We went to the dirty Duck for lunch. The sun was shining and many were enjoying the terrace which is a real sun trap. We had a table inside in the bay window which overlooked the river. The menu was a typical pub type with both hot food and sandwiches, Panini's etc. Service was good and atmosphere was warm and friendly. A good spot!

Met up with a friend and her family in Stratford, decided we were going to have lunch, we usually visit the Red Lion but they were having kitchen troubles so decided to look elsewhere, my friend found the Dirty Duck online and we decide to give it a try ! So glad we did, we arrived at 12 and i think we were the first, shown to a table, there was 7 of us, 2 adults and 5 children. Our waiter was really friendly and helpful, good choice on the menu, nice to see the childrens menu didnt just consist of fish fingers and chips ! Food was really nice, arrived quickly, would recommend and would like to visit again the next time we are in Stratford

After visiting this pub on 18/02/14, I found the service very good, the drinks were ordered and arrived very quickly. After ordering our food (I went for the traditional fish and chips). It arrived quickly and the fish was massive! which was good it was cooked well and no bones in it. Also the chips were delicious. And the pudding was nice too. all on all I would recommend this pub to everyone who is in the area.
