“A lovely Place”

Written on: 17/12/2013

Just been for lunch and it was lovely .Warm and cosy on a cold winters day. Despite being busy we had a welcoming reception and were looked after throughout our visit .We only had sandwiches on this occasion but the bread was nice and fresh and the fillings tasty. The food being served to other tables looked fresh and appetising.I was surprised at how busy the Restaurant was for a midweek lunchtime, particularly because of the out of the way location. I would definitely go back and look forward… Read Full Review

“AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE”

Written on: 03/02/2013 by Jenniferblue (1 review written)

My own mistake for giving it a second chance, bad enough the first time, but being fair I returned, truly, truly awful, only giving it one star as the quant setting and surroundings warrant that, but apart from that its a washout, countless staff more interested in texting and talking than serving the customers and seeing to their needs or requests. Then dishing up to the table with 'carefully selected local produce' well if it is whoever is in the kitchen must have a real grudge with the local… Read Full Review

“Under (newish) managment - fantastic weekend break!!!!”

Written on: 28/05/2012 by Jo.G (1 review written)

We booked last minute and got an excellent rate of £50 per room with full English Breakfast (the best we have ever had!!!). Room was stunning (Mallard and Teal rooms have HUGE baths), veiws amazing, staff attentive and friendly giving us a choice of rooms on arrival and also letting us choose breakfast time. Stayed for a meal (food gorgeous!) in evening and pub was extremely busy but lovely, cosy atmosphere!! We will definatly be going again!! We believe they have changed management in last… Read Full Review

“Ruined a really good pub”

Written on: 25/02/2012

I've been visiting the Strawberry Duck pub for many years for the good food but since the chef changed a few months ago, the menu has become very limited and the selection and value of the sandwiches at lunch time is particularly awful. We always called into the pub after a long walk and looked forward to the wide choice of good value sandwiches e.g. home cooked ham and beef. Now they serve a small selection of mainly "open sandwiches" which seems to mean an excuse to serve you one slice of… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/01/2012 by linto78 (2 reviews written)

I went to Strawberry Duck for and we had been before and had no problems. On this occasion though, we sat in the restaurant and were treated to foul, loud language and blaring music coming from the kitchen. My wife having ordered fish and chips (Lasagne un-available) and discovered short black hair in her meal. The bar lady was very apologetic and offered a alternative or refund for the meal and we took the refund. It seemed very unprofessional on their part and I dare to say I wouldn't visit… Read Full Review

“Never Again!”

Written on: 01/01/2012 by JZIB (1 review written)

I appreciate that we landed during what appeared to be the pub's busiest hours (dinner), but even so... After paying a total of £22 for two sandwiches, two 'plates' of chips (for £2.75 each I expected something more substantial than the two teeny weeny saucers served) and "three individual pots of tea" (we got three cups but only one pot), our food arrived SEVENTY mins later...but only after informing the 2nd waitress of its being late. The 1st one, a foreign lady, ignored our 'where is our… Read Full Review

“Lovely Evening at the Strawbury Duck”

Written on: 28/08/2011

First time, very impessed, food outstanding for pub food. Like the way local produce is used. Most enjoyable evening, staff very friendly, no long waits in between courses. Excellent and first class. We were introduced to the Strawbury Duck by friends who go at lunch time. Six of us dined last night. Keep up the good work it is worth travelling from Eccles, Manchester. The word will be spread what a nice place to visit. Hope to go again in the not too distant future and take new people. I had… Read Full Review

“Excellent food and surroundings”

Written on: 26/07/2011

My partner and I went here last night for a meal and the food was so great that I felt compelled to write a review. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome from the guys behind the bar and given the choice of tables to suit our 'mood'. There a number of rooms to choose from so you can retire to the snug area or eat in the more lively lounge area which we did. There is an amble choice of food on the menu as well as the specials board and the local providence of the food is proudly… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/04/2011

We visited The Strawberry Duck 8 months ago and were disappointed then. I ordered Potted Duck expecting either traditional potted meat or a confit but instead was served plain strips of duck in a pot. It was literally 'potted duck' and also a joke. Other things were wrong with meal that day, too much potato and not enough filling in the fish pie for example and nothing that was outstanding. We did not want to review the pub negatively then, wanting to give it a chance as a new business in the… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/04/2011



The strawbury duck serves what I like to describe as 'Posh Pub Food'. The portions are big enough for a large Elk to go home feeling full and the food is more tasty than megan fox covered in Chocolate. There is a predominant theme of local producers to the menu, especially there pork which they breed themselves(Which came as little of a surprise),.the gammon was massive and probably the tastiest ive ever had! The most expensive meal on the menu is a rump steak £16.00, which I will be going to… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/04/2011

Fantastic pub, the bad comments make me laugh! I am a local chef and know Adam and matt (the owners), they rear their own pigs, use the best suppliers locally and I can honestly say, they make everything from scratch! (mushy peas- marrowfat peas are home made)! The problem with the pub is how busy it gets at the weekend during the day- Let's be honest the pub has only been open 6 months and is packed out- obviously people need to chill out!!! For any potential visoitor- remember only upset… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/04/2011

We had wonderful Mother's Day lunch for 10 of us (&4young children). Staff were very accomodating and keen to help with high chairs, extra plates for children, sauces etc. Food was delicious, well priced and served quickly (even on one of their busiest days of the year). We loved the atmosphere and setting and had previously enjoyed a lovely walk around the reservoir, before sitting down to a delicious lunch. We'll be back!… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/03/2011 by omegamorgan (3 reviews written)

Overpriced, Cheese and Onion Pie,chips and Mushy (tinned) peas...£8.95
There was a 35 + minute wait for the food, with only one couple in before us....and was served ...warm.
The 'Pie' was huge, far too much pastry, which was mediocure. The cheese and onion filling was quite tasty....the Mushy peas were tinned and not hot....The chips were greasey, soggy and overcooked....
The Strawberry duck used to be renowned for it's Roast Beef Bagettes...they are no more.... Bye Bye Strawberry Duck… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/03/2011 by cathyt63 (1 review written)

After reading the mixed reviews I was a little hesitant about going but liked the location so decided to give it a try. It was a busy Sunday afternoon about 4pm. We didn't have to wait for a table and the food was served promptly by very pleasant staff. The bar staff were also very friendly, which was not what I expected from the reviews. The Sunday roast was the best I have had at any pub anywhere around the Bolton area, nice pink beef with not over cooked veg with a huge yorksire pud- yum!… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/02/2011

Lovely place, nice staff. I visited with my partner and some friends for food and drinks. My boyfriend ordered one of the most expensive things on the menu (mutton with bubble and squeak) and was utterly disappointed.
The portion was half the size of the rest of ours, didn't come wth any veg, just a small amount of unseasoned mashed potato, which was supposed to be the bubble and squeak (no cabbage?!), and quite frankly we could have made it better ourselves, for a fraction of the cost… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/02/2011

The food is excellent and generally the staff are very helpful. Food takes a while, but fair enough when it's cooked fresh and turns up to delicious. Lovely atmosphere and visits are always thoroughly enjoyable. As locals we're proud of the Strawbury Duck and pleased with what the new owners have done… Read Full Review
