We had a most enjoyable meal and also service was excellent. They were busy but still were professional and kept us all on the task of eating. Will follow the owners to see where they are setting up business as food is of high quality and they are back on track again.

But hasn't got anything on the website or anything to say it has closed down. How rude can that be..... I have tried spark and they say it is disconnected.

This was a fantastic restaurant with great food. Went there with another couple and we all had fantastic meals. The service was good with the waitress very friendly.

This was one of those experiences when the staff made all the difference, but in a bad way. We had a kids free night so leapt at the chance to give Duck Creek a go, when we arrived we were seated in the front entrance in what I can only describe as the bar area. The seating was beside the... More

Enjoyed our weekday lunch. I ordered the chicken salad; with spiced pumpkin, chick peas & feta - loved it. My husband enjoyed the roasted beetroot, caramelised onion & fig tart; with grilled halloumi and rocket. We would have loved to fit in the strawberry pavlova, but couldn't eat much more after our generous sized meals. The atmosphere was quiet and... More

Food tops but young staff need attention to detail. Arriving and being seated then waiting for 30 mins to be offered drinks not accepted. Then missing people not good either. Food made the night but also waiting to order 2nd drink took too much time as well

My first time here. Probably won't be coming back. The food is acceptable, if somewhat unimaginative. A goats cheese soufflé lacked flavour. It was just bland. The main course centres around beef, lamb, fish, and one vegetarian dish. It is fine, but I have had it all before. There was nothing unique. The service was really bad. When we walked... More

We dined her last weekend. We were very impressed with the food. Salmon cakes and pork belly for entree. Delicious. Then the fish and lamb for our main. The fish and the Lamb were just stunning. Very delicious. Then when it came to order the dessert we were told that he had put the wrong dessert through. Then he waited...I... More
