The Dabbling Duck
Lovely pub.
We really enjoyed the location of the pub on a lovely village green with two duck ponds, lovely to walk around after a delicious meal. Nice beer garden to whole away the evenings. The room was beautiful and the beds were super comfy, bathroom clean and had an amazing shower. Only one problem and it's a biggy...the room faced the back of the pub and the window overlooked the kitchen roof, this housed an enormous extractor fan which was switched on at 07.30 for breakfast, we them left for the day, it was still on when we returned late afternoon, and didn't get switched off until 10.30pm. If everything then went silent it would have been manageable, however the extractor fan noise was replaced by the noise of a fridge (or similar) which continued all night! We tried to sleep with the window shut but it was too hot so we had two sleepless nights, which ruined the stay. If you make sure your room is at the front of the pub you will have an amazing stay as it was such a lovely place and the staff were very friendly, they tried to help us but couldn't.

A lovely little place, with a lot of heart. Nice touch with a strawberry vodka to try in the room. Very dog friendly place and we could even bring the dog with us to dinner. Food was amazing with a lot of thought having gone in to the cooking and ingredients. Breakfast was equally good. Very friendly staff and a pub dog! We will definitely visit again and have recommended it to our friends.

A truly wonderful overnight stay after a very stressful journey. Staff were delightful and rooms comfortable, spacious and clean. Food in the restaurant was amazing a felt relaxed at the end of the evening. Would definitely stay again and recommend. Unfortunately didn't have time to explore this beautiful location.

Pretty place
Warm welcome even though I got the date wrong! Dinner was good except for the chips which were not that nice. Breakfast and staff great.
