Visited today for lunch, very busy but they still managed to get us in. Food very good and reasonably priced, they were also very flexible with the orders. Men do visit the loo, I could help but laugh, luckily no one else was in at the time

Took my husband here as a treat for his birthday lunch after hearing so many rave reviews from friends and reading about it online. Unfortunately we left feeling very disappointed. We paid just over £30 for two meals and two soft drinks. Firstly the lemonade was vile, tasting little more than soda water. It's like the cheap rubbish you buy...

Visited for lunch after walking round Entwhistle reservoir with friends. They had run out of a few things, but the service was very friendly and helpful. Pulled pork sandwiches were delicious and reasonably priced, and kids portions were generous. Good range of gluten free options available too. Would definitely recommend.

Food was worth the wait but staff were rude and unattentive, male manager was rude and didn't apologise for our hour wait for starters, no check back on food, had to ask on two occasions for condiments, spent more time out my seat asking for drinks or where our food was with no apology from the miserable male manager, very...

Great food, nice decor & friendly staff. I live local but it is next to Entwistle train station, just step off the train & walk up the path it's well worth a visit. Great for walkers too on a crisp cold day with fire lit or in the summer too. I had hanging kebabs they were delicious & all our...

I first visited the Strawbury Duck in 2001 on business and when I moved to Lancashire in 2003 became a regular monthly visitor. The place is dog friendly and lots of families and couples visit and I've spent many a weekend and evening with friends after a hike with the dogs. I left Lancashire in 2009 when I moved regions...

I have been here on several occasions - the views around Entwistle Reservoir are breathtaking and the food is excellent value. I love the fact that the dogs have their own menu and are made too feel more than welcome, thankyou!!

Instead of our usual orders of steaks we chose different meals . Fish , well nearly non existent ! The only fish had to be in batter or in pastry . The battered fish had an oily soggy coating . The oil taste in my mouth afterwards tempted me to finish off my husbands meal that he had left stating...

I have stayed at the Strawbury Duck before some 2 years ago and liked it so much I wanted to stay there again. I arrived late just before 9 and asked to see the rooms available. I was shown the 4 rooms and choose the "Mallard Room". This is a very nice room with nice bathroom & enormous tub. I...
