My husband and I were staying about 20mins drive from this restaurant and we're told to visit this restaurant as they highly recommended it. It is near the local pub in Vacy.

What a gem! Tasty escargot and heavenly (fluffy) waffles with butterscotch sauce. Tried a local Camyr Allyn blend. No regrets🍷👌🏼 & such a friendly atmosphere.

It was also very windy and as we had sat outside, she came to check on us several times. We had the bruschetta for entree which was very nice followed by... More

I have been here multiple times, consistently great food in a country town atmosphere. The meals are hearty in size and extremely tasty. Definately worth a visit!

Came to the flying duck for dinner as we were staying in the nearby cabins in the clouds retreat. We had delicious pizza and wine! Was a cute small county restaurant with good service!
