The Muddy Duck
A pub and restaurant based in the rural village of Hethe, just north of Bicester
We’re not just another pub and restaurant – we like to think we’re offering something a little bit different. With many traditional watering holes of old slowly morphing into restaurants-in-disguise, we’ve taken care to ensure we’re two faced. So you’ll find whilst pub and restaurant live very happily under one roof, the offers are quite different from one another. We make no bones that we’ve done some very deliberate things in the hope we’ll become the best of the brace and to see you returning to us time and time again… Enjoy a pie and a pint of cask ale in the pub, or wander through to the restaurant for straight-forward, great tasting food. We have a beautiful terrace dining area, complete with traditional wood burning oven and a pretty walled beer garden. We hope you’ll find a nook or cranny to suit every mood and whim. We’ve held onto our roots, so the pub is very much intended as a place to find a spot to enjoy a pint and pie in. Want uncompromised food without the hand-glazed melange of truffle galette, lightly poached apricots and jus-worded fuss? Then enjoy The Muddy Duck mantra in our restaurant of relaxed, honest food and a tipple of unwavering quality throughout - without feeling like your bill at the end of it has suddenly transported you to the West End. And if you think that’s just another piece of PR spiel, we hope we look forward to proving you wrong very soon!
