The flying duck hotel has been around for many years in fact it first opened in 1868. It has a beautiful beer garden and an open terrace. We were there for the re-launch, where they showcased the beautiful space and introduced their new chef. Lots of beverages and lots of food. It’s where you want to be on a hot summers day.

The crumbed oysters were my favourite. They had a light beautifully crunchy crumb with tiger’s milk, which had the oyster flavour with a bit of zest. Delish!

Little mini sliders are so cute. And they’re even cuter when they have a giant soft shell crab doing a fly-kick out of the bun. It had pickled slaw and aioli. They were yum,

The semi dried tomato croquettes were full of flavour. They were crunchy on the outside and soft and sort of like arancini in the middle. It had a spot of broccoli pesto on top. Tasty.

At the end of the night, the chefs were making nitrogen popcorn with honey and lavender. It looked like frozen popcorn and was incredibly light. It was cold and had a subtle honey floral flavour amongst the creaminess.

Summer is here and the flying duck hotel is a great place to gather some friends together for a tasty feed and some bevvies.

I heart The Flying Duck Hotel!
