From Ralph Clark :
"The Cygnets" pub at Hook-a-Gate has been renamed " The Mucky Duck". Possibly not a name which will agree with you on the first reading but all the same a memorable and commercial name. The pub has had a total makeover and now is a delightful place to be. New landlords David and Jane are a pleasure to know. They are experienced in running family pubs and restaurants in the Midlands. David is a fanatic at providing beer in the finest possible condition so you can be sure that those who know their beer will get an excellent pint. The pub is now a "bar and restaurant" and David has employed an experienced Michelin chef to provide all local and home made food to a high standard at a reasonable price. Children are welcome and a special children's menu will be developed soon. On Sunday I chatted to some of his old customers who had travelled forty miles just to follow David's footsteps. It is just a lovely place to go an I would highly recommend it.
It is advisable to book your table as it is already getting popular. Contact 01743 860202 to book. The pub is closed on Mondays and serves only bar snacks on Tuesdays.
