Myself & my wife Philomena recently enjoyed a fabulous meal in the Duck.. Our waitress brought our food out it was a work of art. The place itself was very clean & the staff where very friendly & had a great knowledge of what food was on the menu... We both really enjoyed the food & most importantly the atmosphere... More

Great atmosphere great music and the food is good too, if your in the duck you don't pay for parking however if you leave your car there you will get clamped, all in all though great place to meet up with friends

Went back to the now "Mucky" Duck. Still service is poor. The food is an improvement but still not the standard of some of the other places to eat in Celbridge. The parking is a joke! Charging people with the luck of not getting clamped. Overall would never step foot in the place again.

So glad to see that The Duck (as it has now been rebranded) has gotten back to what it does so well. There was always a great buzz about this place but if I'm not mistaken it was somewhat hobbled by the lovely people of NAMA for the last several years. The punters went elsewhere and the atmosphere dried up.... More

Went for a drink to the duck in Celbridge tonight and was really impressed with the live music . It wasn't advertised which was a pity because the guy was really talented . Great atmosphere, would definitely be back .

I went for Sunday lunch with my wife. We wanted to try something different so we went to The Duck in Celbridge. It has new ownership and is run my a new management team. The food was lovely and tasty. The staff were very nice and when we asked for suggestions they were very helpful.

We heard that the Duck pub was back serving the 'steak of the stone' so headed up last saturday to try it out and was so glad we did. We both ordered the steak on the stone with chips and when they arrived both came with a portion of fried onions which were absolutely delicious. The portions are very generous... More

The Duck was amazing before NAMA took it over BUT it is now back with new owners and the quality is great!!! The Steak on the Stone is the best we have ever had. Staff are friendly and service is very efficient! Delighted to see it back to where it was!

Before this place closed I used to eat in here all the time. The steak on the stone was always top notch. Since it re-opened under new management my boyfriend and I starting coming back in on the weekend for a few drinks, but I had been reluctant to try the food...not sure why, maybe because I never saw a...

Now known as the duck, it doesn't have many options for vegetarians.... In fact only one main course. The chef did do a vegetable stir fry for me which looked the part but lacked any real flavor. Dessert was delicious... Profiteroles. Service great and staff excellent. The rest of my group loved their steak on the stone... A few planned... More
