Chicken is OK.
Honestly? We prefer duck.
Especially in the form of Ducks Inn at Aberlady.
A restaurant with rooms, Ducks is a cosy and welcoming, family-run business with oodles of character – impromptu putting competitions from the bar are not unknown.
Half an hour from Edinburgh by car and just eighteen minutes by train, Aberlady is a picturesque little seaside village and the perfect base for exploring East Lothian.
With this Big Deal valid from the start of October to the end of March 2020, it is very flexible.
It would make a gorgeous gift for anyone who would appreciate a seaside break in one of East Lothian’s cutest villages.
Available seven days a week, the offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a twin or double room with a full Scottish breakfast in the morning – the perfect set-up for a round on one of the many local golf courses.
As part of the offer, you’ll receive a glass of sparkling wine on arrival.
The ensuite rooms have tea and coffee making facilities; king size bath towels; comfy pillows and duvets; flat screen TVs showing a hundred or so channels and free WiFi.
Off-road car parking facilities make Ducks all the more convenient.
Dining at Ducks
A full Scottish breakfast is included in the deal. If you choose to take other meals (not included) at Ducks then you are in for a treat.
As well as the informal bar bistro – think traditional fish ‘n’ chips or a 35-day-aged rib-eye – Ducks has a dining room with two AA Rosettes.
Fresh, local produce is very much to the fore on menus which feature starters such as Port Seton langoustine with courgette, almond and lemon purée or the slow-cooked lamb rump served with Israeli couscous, spiced lamb shoulder tortellini and buttermilk.
The wine list is excellent and, if you really want to make a night of it, Ducks has a good selection of Scotch Malt Whisky Society drams and a well stocked humidor.
See and do
Ducks is surrounded by 21 golf courses, including the famous Muirfield and five Open Qualifying Courses. With advance notice, they are happy to make tee time and transport bookings.
Aberlady Nature Reserve is on the doorstep and it is a big draw for wildlife lovers and twitchers.
Other local attractions include Tantallon and Dirleton castles, sea fishing, horse riding and, of course, bracing walks along the beach.
Ducks Inn at Aberlady has many glowing reviews on TripAdvisor. We thought this one pretty much said it all:
‘Located in Aberlady, in an ideal location central to the Scotland Golf Coast, Ducks Inn presents an outstanding combination of top-class dining, super friendly staff, and lodging that’s anywhere from 1000 yards to ten miles away from some of the best golf courses in the world.’
‘Think Muirfield, North Berwick, and the historic Old Course at Musselburgh. For golfers, food lovers, whisky enthusiasts, and anyone else who enjoys meandering about the small towns of East Lothian (just south of Edinburgh), Ducks Inn is a must consideration.’
Give yourself a break with today’s Big Deal from Ducks Inn at Aberlady. It’s the perfect way to enjoy the winter months.
And, as we mentioned, this offer would also make a lovely present.
