* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Opened in 2015, Joe Kaczmar’s small venture offers modern brasserie fare produced by chef Cassie Bond and her team. The rating was dragged down by the odd reporter who found it a little overpriced, given somewhat cramped conditions and a lack of smoothness service-wise, but all reports say the staff are pleasant and the food of good quality.

This little five-year-old venture was revamped about a year ago. Feedback is still too limited for a rating, but it’s a promising option, serving hearty bistro fare.

Have you eaten at The Hungry Duck?

Owner's description

The Hungry Duck is a proud, fiercely independant neighbourhood bistro in the bustling heart of Ramsbottom. The frequently changing menu delivers modern British cuisine with an international influence, informed by seasonal variety and inspired by owner Joe's and Head Chef Cassie's desire to bring great dishes to a neighbourhod bistro, delivered with humility & honesty.

A compact but powerful wine list driven by Joe's constant wine discovery is designed to complement the menu, and is constantly being added to as more wines are discovered by the team that simply cannot be passed up.

The team are charming, ever attentive and at all times unostentatious, and they deliver service with a dollop of Northern hospitality, personality and authenticity too often not in evidence elsewhere.

"Perfectly pitched local community bistro with strong emphasis on local produce, was vastly improved plating and tighter flavours over the last year. An excellent wine list too. "

"I was blown away by the quality of food being produced by such a small kitchen. Classic dishes done well with the odd twist or two. Superb wine list, excellent service and great food make it somewhere worthy of a detour. Simply amazing."
