This is the second time I have been to The Wild Duck and I was not disappointed as the standard was just as good as the first time. A unique venue tucked away this is a place to try, great food and very nice staff - Highly Recommended

Lovely Sunday lunch with girlie friends at our annual get together in the Cotswolds food was fab large potions well cooked . Only slight downside was we were sitting away from the fire and was quite cold so would wrap up warmer next time.

I had lunch on a Saturday with my family. It was decorated with the Christmas tree, so really festive and the roaring fire going.
Perfect setting for family from London to get a country feel.
Food and service was amazing.

Visited with some customers from Scandinavia. They were won over by the charm of the Wild Duck, the range of local beer, the roaring fire and the wonky wood framing. Jovial, welcoming staff - excellent food - perfect evening!

Best Sunday lunch I've ever had out. Roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding were perfect, and an extra jug of gravy was the cherry on top. Followed the roast with sticky toffee pudding and ice cream which was amazing too... Very sad I live in Scotland and can't get to the wild duck inn more often!

The Wild Duck has been our go to place for meals out for a number of years, the food has always been good, but over the last 12 months it's got even better, varied menu, not your usual pub food. The staff serving are polite knowledgable service is excellent.

Fabulous food, wine, atmosphere, service. Only point I'd like to share is that it's impossible to get a cab to collect from the Wild Duck. We called every cab in the area and all refused to collect us. Apparently worse on a weekend evening. It's worth arranging a collection ahead of your visit. The staff were amazingly helpful and one kind waiter gave us a lift back to Cirencester. Otherwise could have been a miserable end to a lovely evening.

Absolutely fabulous, tasty food, very creative and food arrived really hot which seems to make a change these days. The Beef Wellington for 2 was excellent and very professional service all evening. The pub has interesting rooms to sit in and the evening was very enjoyable.

Glorious birthday lunch. After a walk on the Thames path we came in and found the menu choices so good we selected the starters and the special asparagus menu and sat and ate them communally like a tapas. An outstanding sauvignon blanc, excellent service, the dog was greeted warmly.

First visit in far too long and so good to be back. The highlight was the genuinely warm and friendly welcome - the friendly service continued throughout our evening.
A great menu and excellent food served quickly and with just the right level of service.
A wonderfully cosy Cotswold pub which has retained its charm while still feeling clean, up to date and fresh.
With starters around £8 and mains around £18 to £23 and several special options at higher prices it's not a cheap evening out but it's certainly a memorable one - for the excellent food, fantastic service and wonderful ambience.
A real treat.
