    Sunday lunchtime 6 adults and one baby in a highchair. We were squashed around a table which would have been more suitable for 4 people but we managed. 4 of us had roast dinners, beef, lamb & chicken which were all good. Fairly expensive but good quality and came with an array of vegetables including cauliflower cheese. The 5th meal was a cod dish which was cooked well but was very plain with 2 small sides and cost more than the roasts, not really worth the money. My son ordered a side dish of carrots to accompany the cod and alarmingly the hot dish was placed in front of the baby’s highchair. We moved it quickly so no harm done but we felt the staff were maybe inexperienced and not very attentive. The Duck inn had been highly recommended to us but did not match the hype. I would try this again for an evening dinner as a different and maybe a more experienced chef.

    Superb quality of food. Delicious, imaginatively presented and a good amount. The order was served promptly by really warm and friendly staff who were extremely helpful. The restaurant area itself was very welcoming and presented in a modern but homely way. An excellent evening spent in a lovely venue.

    GF starter was poor, made a complaint to waiting staff, relieved no feedback or apology. Main course was good. Very poor desert options so none taken. When paying mentioned poor starter and perhaps it should be deducted from the bill, this was not acknowledged or done, just glossed over. If you ask is everything OK and it isn't do something about it or don't ask.

    plenty of attentive staff, giving us sufficient time to make selection without wondering where they had gone. Excellent, decent sized portions. Had a problem with a beer, but was replaced without question. Great evening had by the 6 of us.

    Under new ownership we went to see if things had got worse or remained high quality as before. We were really happy. I would say the food has got better. The. Roast of beef and pork was excellent. Probably better than before. Ambience great and staff friendly and accommodating when we needed an extra pot of that rare compound - gravy

    Ladies for mothers day treat.The staff were very friendly and we did not have to wait too long for our food even though the restaurant was busy. The fish and chips was hot and tasty, the mussels and hake dishes were excellent. The roast loin of pork was tender The portions were generous and we had a lovely afternoon. This restaurant is well worth a visit

    The Duck has a long and excellent reputation which could be hard to live up to. We went on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was quiet. The staff were very nice and attentive. The music was “interesting” (lounge covers and classic pop and rock songs). Our food was nice and well cooked, and without our any preconceptions from previous experience would have been more than adequate. We wondered if the menu range needed to be as large, or if focussing on a smaller range of really high quality plates would be better. We would go again.

    We used to love the Duck Inn but sadly with new management we felt like it had gone downhill slightly. The prices have risen but sadly the quality of food hasn’t risen with it. The children’s pasta was TINY and there was no desserts that the kids could choose that they wanted. We were told that the children’s menu is aimed at 4-8 year olds?

    This was the first time we had been to The Duck at Stanhoe since the new management took over. We were warmly greeted by Charles who showed us to our table and looked after us very well all evening. We also were served by Rachael with our choice of wine. Both were extremely welcoming, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Our meal , Chateubriand, was excellent as was the wine which had been recommended to us. The atmosphere/ ambience was warm and relaxing Overall a very enjoyable evening.

    Great food, nice atmosphere but service was slow (friendly, but slow) waiting staff didn’t seem to have a system or to recognise that we had been waiting nearly an hour before someone took our order. We came after a number of relatively large tables but we had booked. Ended up being a 3 hour meal which was not great after a long day.

    If you are looking for freshly cooked and well prepared food this is the place to go. The service was very good and efficient. The menu is quite varied and there is something for everyone but restaurants have all been forced to scale things back and considerably increase prices since the pandemic and massive inflation. They and the customers are in a cleft stick which has left us both as losers.
