Needs an update, veg is always overlooked and roasted pirates undercooked. Meat portions smothered in sauce not great. Starters and desserts are ok

We had been looking forward to trying this local restaurant having heard some good things about it. It's in a great spot on the banks of the river. It was busy, a good sign. The entrance was decorated with various 'good food' awards, another good sign. Thus our disappointing lunch, in the dingy downstairs restaurant was all the more shocking.... More

Called in for lunch and what a mistake that was. The Wild Duck has always been very good but I've had the worst meal ever today, so much so, I couldn't eat it as it looked disgusting and tasted even more so. We were greeted abruptly by a female member of staff, when I asked her for the wifi code... More

We had our wedding at the Wild Duck on 28th of December this year and it was just so magical! We are local to Portglenone, and all my friends and family couldn't believe this 'hidden gem' of a venue - the room looked truly spectacular - many likened it to a scene from Harry Potter. Eileen and Oran totally understood... More
