Had lunch today...I had the trio of meats roast and my wife had scampi & chips. The meats were very nice, juicy and well cooked BUT that is were the good parts about this meal stop. The potatoes must have been microwaved along with the rest of the vegetables and the yorkshire pudding was overcooked. The scampi was very soggy and not very nice.
Having just read that it has now changed hands, it certainly showed with todays poor show with the food. No way is this a gastro pub....just overpriced average microwaved food!!!

Having been here for drinks after work a few times and living in Chelmsford, me and my girlfriend decided to walk over to the duck in the recent snow.

At the end of the 4mile walk there we got just what we needed, a table by the fire, 3 courses of decent quality food and some freindly service.

The setting is very much a traditional pub with lots of character and now the new menu excels, for me it's a great combination.

Fortunately we were both able to walk off our meal on the way home :)

We'll certainly return.

 

Great Pub

The Duck Inn is under new ownership and have already made the outside looking a lot smarter. Inside is still the same ...traditional which it should stay that way.

Had a quick meal ...fish n chips very tasty and washed down with a Woodforde's Wherry!!! Wifey had Lambs Liver & Bacon, equally as tasty. They also had Hobgoblin which I have not seen available before. Will be back soon!

 

New Management - New Pub Excellant!!!

Went on Sunday 17th April after being recommended by neighbours...and it was quite busy. The staff were really friendly and really into what they had to offer. Irish gent was talking through the real ales available...went for the IPA.It is a totally different pub and the food was excellant - roast beef. Garden stank and the toilets are BBE!!! once that is sorted it will be good.
