The Duck & Willow

The Duck & Willow is a friendly, atmospheric gastropub serving great food in a lovely setting. Owned by the same landlords as The Gloucester Old Spot, this pub is well known for their excellent food (particularly their Sunday Roast) and welcoming service.

The pub is cosy and inviting, with welcoming staff that fussed Bella as soon as we came in. Bella was very grateful for the large bowl of water in the pub after our long walk at Oldbury Court Estate! Inside feels modern and family friendly with big wooden tables, large bar and botanical print wallpaper. It is a good little pub for families, as for a £1 donation, you can pick up a colouring book set. We would highly recommend the steak burger as someone in our party said, it was ‘the best they ever had’. Booking is advised on the weekends as it’s a popular pub!

The bar serves an eclectic mix of craft ale, a good choice of wine and selection of soft drinks.
