I’m a big fan of the Gloucester Old Spot, so when they started advertising a new sister venue I was optimistic. And when the Duck and Willow opened I was thrilled. Firstly, because my dog is called Willow, which is kind of cool. Secondly, because it’s right by Oldbury Park Estate (Vassels Park) which is a paradise for dog walkers! Add to that the fact that D&W does all the same things well that make the GOS such a great place to eat; good food, good ale, good prices, good atmosphere. We had a baked camembert and a Duck and Willow Cheeseburger. Camembert was served with caramelised red onion and bread. Burger with chips and slaw. Both great. Finished off with chocolate brownie and ice cream. Arrived for the start of food service on a bank holiday Monday, and by the time we left the place was packed. Service was good and we were well looked after.
