- Food, Reviews
By Greg Davis
In early February my wife and I had the opportunity to review The Dog and Duck in Campsea Ashe. New owners Ashley and Chris, and Director Tom, kindly welcomed us and two friends of ours for the evening.
On arrival it is clear to see there has been a good deal of money spent on the pub, and the décor was all in very good taste both outside and in. Saying that, the gents’ toilet has a large rusty metal sink and corrugated metal walls in parts which were very quirky and something that might remind you of toilets from years gone by. But don’t be worried as they are meant to look like that and are a real talking point. The effect is great and along with the rest of the refurbishment, it has all been done very stylishly.
Anyway, bringing you away from such delights to the real reason we were there, the food! The menu offers light bites and nibbles, starters, sandwiches, main courses, desserts, and there is a regular selection of specials available on the daily boards. A couple of these on our evening were Hake and King Prawn Thai curry and a Chicken, Bacon and Mushroom pie with Kale and mashed potato. Both were selected within our four but I will come back to these after I have set your taste buds off describing our starters.
