Excellent service from the time you arrive until you depart. Menu was outstanding, atmosphere was welcoming and your experience will have you returning. Note: I have no connection to Mallard Cottage other than sharing the same name.

Mallard Cottage came highly recommended, and while we were not disappointed, we thought it good but not excellent. The braised lamb soup was hearty and very good, but my fishcakes would have died a boring death without the aioli. My partner's pork and shrimp tacos were good however fell short of 'spicy' as they were advertised. In a great save,... More
