About The Dawdling Duck

Hello and welcome to The Dawdling Duck, Kent’s coolest, quirkiest mobile bar hire!

We have two bars available for your event; our converted horse box bar, and our vintage indoor bar. We can travel to any event in the London and South-East area, and happy to discuss travelling further afield. Both our bars serve a full range of drinks including beers, wines, cocktails, spirits, soft drinks and no & low options.

We have a range of packages to suit all budgets, and can supply drinks for all or part of your day, from reception bubbles, chilled beers, premium spirits to freshly made cocktails.

It is our mission to ensure the service you and your guests receive is the very best possible, from the very first contact, throughout planning and beyond.

Please get in touch, we would love to see how we can make your special day even more special!

Best wishes,

Alex
The Dawdling Duck

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How much do you charge?
    Our 'pay as you go' package is free. We do have a minimum spend of £1000, but in our experience this is easily met. Our 'all-inclusive'packages start at £17.50 per person.

  • How far do you travel?
    If the journey is expected to take longer than an hour, we would ask for a contribution towards our time and fuel costs - the amount depends on the distance.

  • What about glasses?
    We provide all the glassware for drinks supplied from our bar. These include hi-ball, wine, flutes, gin, shot & martini glasses. We swap to disposable glasses near the end of the night. We do not routinely supply glassware for your wedding breakfast, however we are happy to book, collect and return extra glassware & tableware for you through one of our prefered suppliers.

  • What about ice?
    We supply ice as part of any booking at no additional cost.

  • We'd really like a particular cocktail, wine, spirit or beer. Can you supply these?
    Absolutely. Just tell us what you want (within reason) and we will stock it. We will confirm prices before the event.

  • What cocktails do you serve?

    We have 10 popular cocktails on our menu, including Mojitos, Margaritas, Brambles and Martinis (Pornstar, Espresso & Vesper.) We make all our cocktails with fresh quality ingredients and spirits - we do not use any pre-mixes or ready-made cocktails.

  • Our plans are quirky and need flexibility. Can you help?
    We love a challenge! It's your day, and therefore it should be done your way. We will fit in with whatever plans you have.

  • Tell us more about your all-inclusive packages.
    Our all-inclusive packages run for 2, 4 or 8 hours - but can be extended if necessary. We charge per person (under 18's are much less.) The packages include initial reception drinks, wine for the meal, and an open bar throughout, stocked with popular wines, beers and spirits*. Premium drinks are available for a little extra. Our website has more details, and we're more than happy to discuss in person.
    *Spirits are not part of the 2 hour package.

  • We intend to have a big party, with lots of guests. Can you cope?
    No problems. We will bring the appropriate number of staff, and both bars extend so we can have to 4 serving positions.

  • What about non-drinkers and under 18's?
    We can serve mocktails, and a good selection of soft, low and no alcohol drinks, including alcohol free sparkling white wine.

  • What about insurance & alcohol licenses?
    We have event specific personal liability insurance, and have personal licenses for the sale of alcohol. Where necessary, we will apply for the temporary entertainment notice, and liaise with the local authorities. One less thing for you to worry about!

  • You're great, how do I book you?
    Make contact via the link, and we will be in touch within 24 hours. A £300 deposit secures your date & booking.

    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

    Absolutely Perfect!

    We hired the dawdling duck for our wedding reception located at a village hall. The look of the bar topped of the venue. The staff where so friendly and helpful. Our guests all complemented the bar and the fantastic service the staff provided. The prices of the drinks where competitive and there was a great choice of drinks. Thanks again Alex and Andy!

    The perfect wedding day!

    Thank you so much Alex and the team. Everything you did was perfect, the guests loved it, we loved it! The service you provide is absolutely fantastic, the horse box is exactly what we wanted for our garden wedding. Highly recommended to anyone.
    Thank you all once again Perry & Beth
