Surprise yourself

There’s more to The Comfy Duck than the awards we’ve won, the local, season produce we source daily and the distinctive dishes we’re famous for. There’s a real sense of excitement every time we open our doors. We love what we do – and you can tell. We’re trying to create something truly unique and every member of our close-knit team is proud to be a part of it.

So please join us for special occasions, impromptu pick-me-ups or for no reason at all – and you’ll soon see what all the fuss is about.
