About the Pub

Set high above Ambleside,, the Duck stands at a crossroads. A traditional Lakeland dwelling, reflecting the simplicity, beauty and longevity of its natural environment. From these same fells, they draw not only the water for their beers brewed on site- Barngates Brewery, but also the inspiration for their restaurant, which showcases the extensive range of quality produce that Cumbria has to offer. The bar has six hand pumps and serves all of the Barngates beers on rotation, usually always Cat Nap and Tag Lag. The outside seating area at the front offers dramatic views of the Lake District fells to the north-east. Dogs are allowed except in the dining room. The meal times listed are the times when a full menu is available. A limited menu is available between the brunch and evening meal menus.
