Way up in the hills between the Entwistle and Wayoh reservoirs, The Strawbury Duck has long been a landmark pub. Although magnificently modernised, it hasn't said farewell to its old beams and open fire, nor forgotten that pictures and comfortable chairs help make a pub particularly welcoming. No surprise to find an ale called Strawbury Duck in the bar, nor indeed Bowland Pheasant Plucker. Pub classics like home-made pie, and Southern fried chicken in a basket vie for attention with beer-battered fresh fish of the day; pub-raised rare-breed Saddleback sausage and mash; and chargrilled steaks. Sweeping views are available from the beer garden.
