Restaurant description

A buzzing bistro with simple, contemporary styling, The Hungry Duck has a wonderfully intimate feel and holds a Michelin Plate award. Enjoy inventive British recipes presented with real flair, along with an accomplished wine list and selection of craft beers.

Traditional British dishes are given modern re-imaginings on The Hungry Duck menu, using seasonal ingredients that are locally sourced wherever possible. Bold, colourful mains include fresh seafood dishes like curried goats’ cheese gnocchi with chimichurri, and the roasted sea bream with bourbon-smoked beetroot and apple and coriander foam. On Sundays, enjoy roast dinners with a perfect blend of time-honoured tradition and the bistro's signature modern flair.

Diners can add in indulgent sides at The Hungry Duck in Lancashire, such as truffle fries, and smoked butter mash. The wine list features carefully selected varieties from around the globe, with fortified bottles including Chocolate Wine from England. For pudding, be sure to save room for signature treats like the set custard with salted caramel, honey sponge, and dandelion and burdock ice cream.

An intimate setting to enjoy bold, thoughtful updates on British classics, The Hungry Duck in Ramsbottom is a great example of a modern neighbourhood bistro.

    Everything about this dining experience was spot on! Our server Joe, (the owner?) couldn’t have been more hospitable talking us through the menu & drinks he really went above and beyond. The food was exceptional - as expected for the price! The soup starter & steak a particular highlight with some very nice + strong drinks between courses. The price for us makes it a place to visit only for special occasions but was so worth it and can’t recommend enough. We will definitely be returning here, very similar in vibe to Hispi Bistro in Didsbury which is another of our favourites. The hungry duck team run a well oiled machine & you can certainly relax and enjoy the whole experience with some of the best local food around.

    Lovely venue, fabulous food and super friendly staff. We were made to feel so welcome. Our whole party had a really enjoyable night and all commented on the great choice of venue. Will be back and have already recommended to others.

    I don't like giving bad reviews, but I feel our experience needs to be shared as a warning. We had very high hopes for this place due to the positive recommendations we had received. I decided to book this place for my partners family birthday meal and unfortunately we didn't have a good time. Although the food was okay (apart from the £8 supplemented extremely salty starter) the whole meal was perhaps ruined by the waitress constantly reminded us how only had 2 hours for our table. We were told first thing as we were waiting for other party members to arrive, when ordering our 3 course deal she mentioned we couldn't order dessert because of the lack of time only to be told after the meal that we had time, and then immediately after our meal the bill was placed on our table with no acknowledgement from her even though we still had 15 minutes until our 2 hour window had ended. I understand that we had only 2 hours for our table as this is the restaurant policy (which i think is a little bit short for a birthday celebration of 5 people)but I think there was a better way of going about it from the staff. The waitress made very little effort to make our experience a good one other than rush us out for the next table of customers. Speaking as an experienced waitress myself, it seemed she lacked very little customer service as when she asked the scripted 'how was your meal' question, we told her the truth about the starter being very salty, she barely responded. Overall, it was a real shame as it perhaps tainted our view of the food. The cheese and onion pie and sticky toffee pudding was delightful at least.
