The Wild Duck Inn is a traditional Cotswold Inn with luxury rooms, dating back to 1563, uniquely located in the quiet village of Ewen. The Wild Duck Inn is a family run establishment that aims to ensure a friendly comfortable atmosphere with good food and pleasing wines and ales. There is a delightful garden to relax in or dine al fresco. The Post Horn bar which has a welcoming open fire in winter serves a varied choice of food and an excellent range of traditional ales and wines. The country style restaurant has a warm and welcoming ambience with a delicious ever changing menu which specialises in fresh seasonal fare. For a warm, inviting and relaxed atmosphere, the dining room also carries old portraits on deep red walls. The menu is ever changing, and caters well for vegetarians and those with special dietary needs. The food is produced from as much local organic produce that can be sourced, and the head chef, Richard Mann, designs his menu around Modern British and European food with a nod sometimes to the far east. The Wild Duck bar is everything that you would expect to find in a 16th century building. With deep red walls, and hung with old oil portraits the atmosphere is complete with a roaring log fire throughout the winter months. With 5 real ales and an extensive and innovative wine list to compliment the delicious food on offer. The full menu plus daily specials is available throughout the bar and dining room together with a pannini lunch menu. The Wild Duck provides traditional comfort with en suite rooms. Some of the rooms are in the oldest part of the building and are furnished in four–poster style. Within a mile, The Wild Duck is surrounded by the Cotswold Water Park, with 80 lakes providing fishing, swimming, sailing, water and jet–skiing, and the Thames Path National Trail (one of only 13 National Trails in England). Polo is played regularly at Cirencester Park, Cheltenham hosts the Gold Cup Race Meeting, and there are the annual horse trials at Gatcombe Park and Badminton. Outside is a delightful enclosed courtyard canopied by a huge apple tree, where you can take breakfast in the summer, lunch or even an evening meal under patio heaters.
