          There are several reviews highlighting poor food, very expensive prices, small portions, limited menu choice and very poor customer service. What has gone wrong at the Drunken Duck? We were going to eat at the Drunken Duck one evening but decided against this due to dissatisfied customers. I also agree it is quite rude to be expected to move off your table after 2 hours when paying so much for a meal and drinks. Could this be a Wake Up call - hope so!
