The Mucky Duck has recently been taken over, and I have to say, its looking rather fabulous!
It's an old style pub with a modern twist - cosy, comfy but funky at the same time. The art on the walls is provided by local artists and is available to purchase, or just to peruse if money is tight.
They offer a quiz night, an open mic night, and live bands and DJs on a Friday and Saturday night. Happy hour is 5-7, Monday to Friday.
Board games and Sunday papers are available to keep you occupied, plus there's free WiFi - ask at the bar for password.
The Sunday lunch menu offers a choice of chicken, lamb, beef and nut roast. Between myself and my friends, we tried three of the four options and all of us were very impressed. Large portions and really tasty food. My one complaint is that they charge extra for a Yorkshire pudding on all but the beef - come on, its only a bit of baked batter, chuck it on the plate for free!!
Looking at their menu, I don't think they are serving food throughout the week as yet, but I'm sure they will do shortly. Will definitely be back to try it out when they do.
PS Anyone who uses the line "enough of the wankery" on their website gets an extra star in my book!
Ok update!! : They have now redone the Ladies :D Happy toileting girls!
