The Wild Duck

The Wild Duck Cirencester Cotswolds Pub and Restaurant Logo

A British Cotswold Inn brimming with rich history, the perfect spot for a delicious feast or simply a round of drinks in front of the roaring open fire.

We’ve worked side by side with UE Coffee, the only artisan wood-fired coffee roastery in the UK, whose Master Roasters combine their talent and experience to bring out the optimum taste, aroma and colour to create The Lucky Onion’s truly unique and sustainable house blend of beans from Brazil, Costa Rica and India. Cherish each sip at The Wild Duck or grab and go with your coffee of choice in one of our biodegradable, takeaways cups.

Eat & Drink


“And the food? Suffice to say, the flavours are as fresh as the staff are dishy.”



Our lunch and supper menus are deeply rooted in everyone’s favourite British classics, using the best produce we can find. Tuck into Local Venison Haunch with Salt Baked Celeriac and Kale or Roasted Cod with Jerusalem Artichoke, Spinach, Samphire and Gremolata or try one of our legendary Sunday roasts which are worth the trip just for the roast alone.

Hotfoot it into our stylish Grouse Room can seat up to 14 guests– or hire out the inn as a whole. The décor is traditional and relaxed, a round stripped-back oak table and walls inspired by 16th century panelling will make you feel warm and cosy.

Food serving times:

Lunch: Everyday 12pm – 3pm (Saturday and Sunday 12pm – 4pm)

Supper: Sunday to Thursday 5:30pm – 9:30pm (Friday and Saturday 6pm – 10pm)
