I have been here a few times, and every time has been a delight. The roast dinner is the best!! I would highly recommend. It's a beautiful little pub and the garden is lovely in the summer.

We booked for lunch for three, we decided to have two starters each to sample more of the menu. We had the chicken liver Parfait (a substitution for the game terrine) this was pleasant abeit a little small, served with two small slices of brioche. The Welsh rarebit was excellent and couldn't be faulted as was the devilled crab. Both... More

Reviews have been varied for this restaurant/pub but we enjoyed our Saturday lunch there. It was busy and clearly people had booked but we were able to get a table. Service was good, the menu explained and drinks brought promptly. I had duck pie, really good and my wife had the special fish of the day, also good. The only... More

We came for a family meal with children on a cold January day. We received a very friendly welcome and both bar and waiting staff were very solicitous. It came across as a very family friendly pub, the food was delicious, our one small disappointment was that after the main courses we were expecting great things from the desserts and... More

My partner and I have recently spent a few weekends in the Cotswold and discovered the Wild Duck by chance and we're so very glad we did. The pub has recently been purchased by a small restaurant/pub group but I have been informed not a great deal has changed aesthetically but a new kitchen has been installed. This, IMHO, has... More

A traditional Cotswold Inn with a rich history. Perfect for a Sunday roast or simply a pint of local beer.Ivy droops over the Cotswold stone of this beautiful, sixteenth century coaching inn near Cirencester. Expect proper English, seasonal pub food using the best ingredients we can find.Our lunch and supper menus are deeply rooted in everyone's favourite British classics. Tuck into Pork Belly Confit or Roasted Guinea Fowl Breast or try one of our legendary Sunday roasts which are worth the trip just for the roast alone.
