About The dabbling Duck...

The Dabbling Duck pub was opened in 2006 as the result of a tireless community action group and a far-sighted local authority's 6 year campaign to prevent the beautiful old building (previously the Rose and Crown pub) from being converted into housing.

The Dabbling Duck now plays a vital part in the heart of the local community and is a focal point for the village. The owners regularly eat and drink at the pub with their friends and colleagues.

Accommodation enquiries

The pub is situated between the two large ponds which are inhabited by numerous friendly 'dabbling ducks' (from The Wind in the Willows – "ducks go a dabbling – up tails all!").
