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.
It had a relaxed vibe and lots of beautiful outdoor space.
They have an extensive range of beers and wines, which is always a plus.
Lots o’ beer.
They had big bowls of ice with squares of watermelon sangria. Fruity, red wine soaked watermelon pieces, they were refreshing and sweet.
They had these homemade prawn crackers that were tasty. All shapes and sizes.
We tried the shots of strawberry gazpacho with parmesan foam. It was definitely interesting. A strange combo of flavours,
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!
Here is a close up. Love!
The chicken pasties had a light puff pastry and were accompanied by a mushroom sauce. They were dusted with icing sugar, which made them a little sweet.
The kingfish ceviche was nice and zesty, sitting in a black rice cracker.
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 dumplings had a thick skin pastry and were sitting in a spiced curry sauce.
The pork belly skewers were tasty, they had a sticky marinade with spring onions.
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.
They had mini parmas, which were little strips of chicken in a tomato sauce wrapped in a lettuce leaf. I’ve never been able to eat a parma in two bites before so it was definitely a first.
We had this passionfruit and lime cocoktail (the name escapes me) and it was delicious!
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!
