    Let me first state the staff and setting are lovely. However, it is many years since I visited this Inn, and then they had the most amazing selection of British grub, just what you need after a hike. What happened to locally sourced Cumberland sausage...More

    Stopped in the Drunken Duck Inn during our circular Windermere walk.Only had drinks but the food looked good. Very comfortable bar areas and good,prompt service.Menu looked very nice but a bit pricier than elsewhere.

    Nice location, friendly helpful staff and the garden room is very comfortable and quiet. Sadly the sitting room is no longer open and the cream teas have been dropped for a cupcake. The bar area is very convivial with a really good selection of beers...More

    Sorry, no idea on this one, I didn't stay here. Great food though!!

    There are several reviews highlighting poor food, very expensive prices, small portions, limited menu choice and very poor customer service. What has gone wrong at the Drunken Duck? We were going to eat at the Drunken Duck one evening but decided against this due to dissatisfied customers. I also agree it is quite rude to be expected to move off your table after 2 hours when paying so much for a meal and drinks. Could this be a Wake Up call - hope so!
