    Lovely afternoon enjoying tapas and cocktails

    This was the first time I had visited The Ugly Duck and would definitely go back. The staff from the beginning of our visit were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Nothing was a bother from giving the booking of 4 a seat outside, extra time to enjoy a drink before our food and checking in with us throughout our time there. Thank you
