Pub / Bar
The Duck Inn is a traditional British pub, proudly serving a wide variety of local beers together with the Worlds best offerings in wine and spirits. We are an Elgood and Sons pub and as Elgoods are based in Cambridgshire our beer doesn't travel far, so it is always fresh and delicious.
The bar itself is a cosy place in the colder months, with warm open fires and an equally warm and welcoming reception.
In addition to the indoor bar area we also have a wonderful garden with plenty of seating and our marvelous outdoor log burners to keep you warm on those Autumn evenings. We also have a dedicated heated outdoor smoking area/snug which is so nice and cosy that non-smokers can often be found sitting in it too!
