    Fantastic bar

    What a fantastic bar! Hiring The Dawdling Duck for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. The team were always at hand to answer any questions in the lead up to the wedding and during the wedding they made sure to keep our guests drinking through the night! They were always smiling and chatting to our guests and created a fantastic vibe! Thank you so much for being part of our day! xx

    Recommended for any event

    Marcus and his team were exceptionally friendly and professional. They went above and beyond to add personal touches like requests for stocking of certain ales for one of our guests. The static wooden bar looked fantastic and quirky in our barn wedding venue. I would highly recommend The Dawdling Duck if you need a bar for your event!!
