Went with my mum, friend and baby son for afternoon tea. We were made to feel very welcome, and then served very nice sandwiches- not run of the mill fillings, but tasty combinations. Scones were very good, and portions generous

We are not ones for moaning and always mindful, but we should have listened to our neighbours. They said it was poor, and they were right. Anyway, I've finally calmed down from the experience of this evening at the Dabbling Duck to write our review....More

I do not know when their last orders in the bar/restaurant but generally it is 21.00hrs, call the Dabbling Duck they can advise. Houghton Hall is about 10/15 mins away by car.
