The Fuzzy Duck
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Situated in the heart of Armscote village, this award-winning venue is bursting with character and charm. With two AA rosettes for its culinary excellence and a feature in the Michelin Guide, The Fuzzy Duck leads the way in service and hospitality.
Expect seasonally changing menus with innovate and classic British dishes cooked with flair using the fi nest local produce. To start, it’s hard to ignore the popular and ever-present scotched duck egg, while the smoked salmon served atop a homemade toasted crumpet with tartare butter is another terrific opener. Next, the Lighthorne lamb rump paired with roasted cauliflower, cavolo nero, garlic potato pressing and rosemary jus is a firm favourite, alongside the pan-fried seabass fillet accompanied by crab champ, wild mushrooms, curly kale, samphire, and lemon butter. Alternatively, choose from the Fuzzy Duck classics including guest ale-battered British cod fillet with hand-cut chips, pea purée and homemade tartare sauce, and garlic roasted chicken breast with truffle and Parmesan fries and Caesar-dressed baby gem salad. These are best enjoyed alongside a pint from the ever changing guest ale selection, or perhaps a glass of wine from the international list.
For a final flourish, opt for the moreish ginger sticky toffee pudding served with stem ginger jam, butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream, or perhaps choose the classic crème brûlée with almond and orange biscuits and pear sorbet. Everyone is well catered for with a dedicated children’s menu that features meals such as macaroni cheese, and two free-range sausages with mash or chips and beans. A tremendous Sunday roast is served alongside the main menu, making The Fuzzy Duck a perfect destination for a weekend treat.
Visitors can also enjoy a delightful night’s sleep in one of four characterful guest bedrooms, all of which are decorated in a contemporary style. With so many beautiful walking and cycling routes nearby, this is the ideal base from which to explore the beautiful Cotswolds. In addition to all this, The Fuzzy Duck welcomes private parties including weddings and conferences, and the friendly staff are experts in hosting memorable, smooth-running events.
