We recently returned to the Blue mallard to catch up with Edyta and Fabrice after having our wedding here back in May. We had 50 guests during the day and 70 at night and we couldn't find a single fault. The food was unbelievable and the service was seamless. Edyta could not have done more to help us prepare for the day and she did everything to make every detail just as we wanted it.

My husband and I have eaten here a few times since Edyta and Fabrice took over and cannot recommend it enough. Fabrice smokes his own fish and duck and they're devine. Do not be fooled by the simple menu descriptions they're is nothing simple about the food or wine. The gorgeous local cheese is perfect for finishing a gorgeous meal.

We would highly recommend visiting for dinner or to hold a function.

The Blue Mallard has changed hands but we didn't find it as bad as three recent reviews.

The place was practically empty when we arrived at 1.15 so there was little atmosphere and the lack of music didn't help.

The food style has changed but we had a perfectly acceptable lunch for £16.95 and the service was efficient and friendly.

I hope the business manages to rise above recent criticism and people give it try.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal last night. Started with the smoked salmon, delicious and beautifully presented. For mains I had a sirloin steak with a red wine jus. The steak cooked just how I like it and the red wine jus was really, really good, a lovely beef flavour initially and then the flavour of the wine kicked in, again absolutely delicious. My wife had the cod which she really enjoyed. For sweet I had a rum baba which was an absolute delight. Soaked in quality rum it just left a lovely taste in my mouth for the rest of the evening. Excellent service throughout made it a special evening.
