    Up from London to see family and had dinner on Saturday night, my first visit to ducks and overall found it a very enjoyable evening. We had a drink in the bar and being a keen golfer found the bar very interesting with all the memorabilia especially good, locals, tourists and golfers all enjoying it.
The bistro area is fairly big so plenty space and reasonably busy on Saturday, the standard of the food we had was very good with the beef rib excellent, all other dishes were of a good standard … very enjoyable evening
