Big Duck Weekend

20th May 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 21st May 2017 @ 12:30 am

The Big Duck Weekend Final

It’s Party time!

How time flies and it’s now a year since we opened our doors as The Duck at Burtle following a major refurbishment.

The team at The Duck have achieved so much, such as; being awarded finalists in the Somerset Food & Drink Awards 2016 for best gastro-pub and best newcomer, now almost consistently getting 4 and 5 star ratings in our restaurant, opening up a fabulous new function venue for parties and get-togethers and now launching Weddings at The Duck along with 2 lovely cottages for those wishing to stay overnight or longer!

We’re going to be putting on a quacker of an event with the Big Duck Weekend to celebrate and as a thank you to our customers, as we couldn’t have done it without you!

There’s fun for all the family with ducky games, duck feasts and rubber ducks galore!

  • During the day we’ll have party games such as apple ducking and duck shy.
  • There’s a competition to name our lovely 4 resident ducks.
  • Plus a rubber duck raffle to raise funds for our very important Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.
  • Duck inspired menu’s to tantalise your taste buds for lunch and dinner and tea and cake for those in-between times!
  • Then on Saturday night there’s live music from 9.00pm with The Tracks Band…

It’s a free event so bring your friends and family for a quacking good time!

We recommend early booking for the restaurant!
