Duck's Inn Aberlady

Duck's Inn at Aberlady The East Lothian Hotel

Built in 1638, Duck's is a charming Inn with the facilities of a hotel and the friendliness of a Bed and Breakfast.



We will be closed from November 2020 until 26th April 2021.

We will be available for key workers, room only for a minimum of 4 nights.

Thank you all for your support and good humour. The business is in reasonable health and closing ensures we protect what we have achieved over the summer and are in a strong position to take on 2021.

Our bookings for next year are looking pretty healthy. We will be dealing with normal administration and bookings for next year however. We can reopen very quickly should the situation change or for a bespoke request.

Lastly a huge thanks to all the team at Ducks for their hard work and understanding.

Message from Malcolm

"Firstly I wish everyone the best for the coming months, I hope you all stay safe and manage to find a smile and some laughter in a drawer somewhere. Laughter is the best medicine in the world and extremely cheap, though at times difficult to find. We always have a simple choice to make in life between Happy and Sad no matter the circumstances and Happy Land is a much nicer place to be, if a tougher place to find".

What people say about Ducks

Felt Very Welcome

The room was cosy and comfortable. Breakfast was great - loads of choice and the cooked part was really excellent. We'll definitely be back.

Lovely Village Inn

Fantastic food, we ate from the bar menu. The scallops to start were lovely, followed by lamb -delicious. The bar was very cosy and welcoming as were the staff.

One of our favourite inns in Scotland

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Duck's, taking advantage of their Tasting Menu offer, and couldn't have been more pleased. The Inn is friendly, welcoming, comfortable and homely.
