Great little place and in such a nice location too. My wife and I love sitting outside, in the fresh air enjoying a drink or two. The Sangria jugs are fantastic and the prices for food and alcohol are very reasonable. In general there service and drink quality is also pretty good. I suppose the only thing stopping me giving 5 stars it the inconsistency of the food, some chefs are definitely better than others here. There has been times where the food, taste and presentation has be absolutely world class, other times it's been avarage and that's being generous. The item here I'm referring to is the chicken schnitzel, sometimes it's crispy and delightful, others it's soggy and greasy. I will come back and dine again because the amount of good meals outweigh the bad, I have dined here about 15 times and 2 meals have been below avarge while the other 13 perfect. See less

Nice pub and friendly staff. We had the chicken parma and the chicken Korean bowl and both of them were delicious. See less

Feels like an old-school pub, in a beautiful little spot in the hills. Good food, good beers, nice cocktail jugs. A perfect place to have a long lazy lunch or dinner with friends. See less

Food was of reasonable quality however meals on a table of 7 came staggered out over a 15 minute period. Table service was lacking, the staff did not come around for extra drinks, a lost revenue opportunity for the place. There is a bunch of opportunities for this place to be better for customers and more profitable for the owners. See less

Went there with a group just before xmas. This had been a go-to place for us for years. But I was shocked when my meal came out. This was a meal I had before, but it was tiny. They gave be a free entree which was nice because my meal was so obviously under size, but others in my group were also astonished at the teeny tiny pieces of fish they got. They said they had made it smaller because people had complained it was too big. That sounds like rubbish to me I have been told it has been bought by Coles. Don't know if this right or not, but something has certainly changed. It's no longer our go to place and we won't go back. See less

Until tonight the Duck was our go to place however this evening the service was truly appalling, our friends pasta was sent back due to lack of sauce, the wine prices seem to have gone up substantially since our last visit so we bought a bottle from the adjacent bottle shop only to be charged $18 dollars corkage fee and we had to ask twice for glasses and had to open the bottle ourselves. We had to wait a very long time to order desert then wait even longer for it to arrive and when it did arrive it was lukewarm. This is a short version of how bad it was tonight, needless to say we won’t be going back in a hurry See less

Valentine's Day..... We have been coming here to our 'local' on Valentine's Day for the past 5 years. I am pleased to say that this year was by far the best experience that we have had! The level of service was delightful from all if the young women! So pleasant and personable from everyone of them which we have not experienced in the past. The food here at the Duck, whilst similar in choice, seems to have gone up a notch or two. A delicious choice of 3 share platters was tasty and filling. Quality ingredients and attention to detail stood out. Thanks for a wonderful experience! See less

A chicken snitzel dripping oil and a sad portion of nachos I would not want my kid to eat, with a few spots of burnt chese and some masterfoods-like tomato paste on it. Easily the worst “nachos” I’ve ever seen. One star for the chips. Two more stars for the two beers that were okay. Considering the price tag, I’m not sure I’ll be back for food. I’m a bit sad about that; a year ago I was raving about this place, and was telling all my friends to go there. Not anymore. See less

After previous good reviews I can't believe how things have changed. I was looking forward to Duck salad with Asian greens, green papaya and peanuts but was served a few pieces of tender but tasteless duck on a bed of Asian slaw (plenty of bean sprouts and red cabbage but no papaya, nuts or greens in sight!) It was topped with what I can only describe as a nest of red coconut matting. Very disappointing and grossly overpriced at $29. I certainly won't be back any time soon See less

Went here today for a birthday celebration. Another example of above average pub food at top dollar rates. Makes you question how casual dining gets priced at fine dining rates. Service was better than most of the eateries in Adelaide. The occasional mix up was of course expected. All in all better for drinks. Wouldn’t really go for the food next time. Guess ones paying for table service See less

We had an excellent dinner. The food was top notch, and the service from Abby (Abigail) and Alex was attentive and we enjoyed the recommendations. I've been a Duck local for 30 years, well known by the locals, but should be a destination pub! #getyourbutthere See less

Completely revoking my previous 5star. The restaurant area seems badly managed. I’ve never been to a city pub which runs out of items. We have now turned up here several times and chicken schnitzels were sold out. And previous times pale ale was sold out. No idea what’s going on. But they def gotta lift their game. Old review”**** Frequent here often. Meals have definitely improved and service of staff is one of the best I’ve experienced. Offering table service is a great difference. Def suggest one of the meals pictured (burger seemed small so opted for snitzel) definitely add this to your list for lunch or dinner. Great visit. (One side note; the place may be due for a renovation at some point) ***** See less

Stopped in for a drink on the way home, we are in hospitality so know how much the capacity limits are a pain however the staff sat us and said we will keep you here as long as we can and handled everything really well. Would like to go back for a meal See less

Food was very tasty we loved the karaage chicken which we shared for a starter. We were big fans of the gin paddle. Staff were friendly and attentive. They asked if we wanted refills when our drinks were finished as well as clearing our plates quickly and asking if we wanted dessert which was amazing. We will definitely be back. See less
