We called in for our usual Thursday date night as it seemed ages since our last visit. Absolutely great choice of beers and ales. The menu hasn't changed since our last visit but it is still a fantastic selection of meals. Our choices where well cooked and presented, no complaints at all.

I have visited The Strawberry Duck several times over the last few years and must say it is always lovely. Not the cheapest on drinks but the food is always good quality and tasty. I've had the lovely fish pie and veggie pasta in the past on this visit I had veggie roast which was lovely. I always visit with... More

Yes, I get that establishment get charged for card payments. However. What better way than to drive business away than to OVER charge your customer. Strawberry Duck has a policy in place that contactless payments must be a minimum of £10 or they will charge you £1. Just at a time when most places are dropping their usual £5 minimum... More

Ideally placed following a walk around Entwistle reservoir. Dog friendly with treats available for our 4 legged friends, large beer garden for sunnier days is great. Steak sandwiches with salad and shared chunky chips was enough to fill us up, great selection of beers and a lovely atmosphere. Definitely a recommendation....

Booked last minute and got a lovely cosy little room with nice countryside views. Beautiful pub for drinks and lovely food in the evening with open fires. Staff were nice and welcoming, good atmosphere! Nice breakfast in the morning with lots of choice. Only bad thing was the bathroom in our room was freezing which is not good in chilly... More

Went for lunch with my partner and his parents on the recommendation of a friend. We were blown away by the quality of the food. Amazing flavours and generous portions from a menu with a brilliant selection. We tried the pies, vegetarian options and the pork belly between us and all were superb. Not to mention the decadent desserts with... More

The Strawberry Duck and Entwistle Reservoir is simply my favourite day out. It was chucking it down so the walk wasn't the most pleasant, but the Strawberry Duck definitely brightened our day. Good food, with friendly service. The pub itself is adorable. Can't wait until next time!

Booked a table for 5, for a Saturday evening. We arrived, and our table was waiting and clean. Staff were friendly and quickly took our drinks order as we mulled over the food menus. They had run out of mackrel pate, which made my hubby a little upset, but he opted for the chorizo which the thoroughly enjoyed. The garlic... More

This so called gastro-pub was not really what i was expecting. A review i read made it sound classier, when in actual fact, its more of a cosy pub, in a fairly remote location, with newly decorated rooms. I was particularly impressed with the sizeable bathroom, complete with bathtub! However, i feel the rooms would benefit from some kind of... More
