The Fuzzy Duck is a quintessentially English country pub set in the picturesque Warwickshire hamlet of Armscote. We offer 4 sumptuous and stylish rooms, each offering their own unique luxury.
Located just a few miles south of historic Stratford-upon-Avon, it offers the perfect country retreat and is an ideal base from which to explore Shakespeare’s haunts and the rolling hills and river valleys of the stunning Cotswolds.
Steeped in history, the building once housed the local blacksmith and in the 18th Century became a popular Coaching Inn. It remains Armscote’s only pub and, saved and sensitively refurbished in 2013 by the family behind Baylis & Harding, it retains many distinctive character features, including exposed beams, flagstone floors and magnificent fireplaces. Clever, contemporary touches now lend this remarkable building a luxurious yet comfortable atmosphere, which can’t fail to charm.
We believe in supplying quality, fresh produce and take great pride in working with the best local suppliers to create delicious and diverse dishes for our seasonal menus and daily specials. Our style can be described as ‘Contemporary Cotswold’, and will feature incredible local flavour combinations.
Each of our four sumptuous and stylish rooms bears the name of a species of duck, some of which can be found on Armscote’s pond and the lakes of Armscote Manor. Choose from our romantic Muscovy room with its king-size bed, or one of our family rooms with additional loft bed above the bathroom.
Each room is beautifully designed with art deco touches, to the highest standard and boasts top of the range technology including a flat-screen, smart TV. Each super-luxe Lefroy Brooks en-suite is stocked with the finest Baylis & Harding Skin Spa and Great Hair Products for perfect pampering. You’ll luxuriate in gorgeous Frette linens and artisan woollen bed-throws. You’ll also find two luxury robes and complimentary super-soft socks and slippers to leave you feeling relaxed and indulged.
Outside, further delights await. We welcome children and four-legged friends and our pub garden is ideal for families to enjoy leisurely lunches, drinks or snacks whilst the beautifully landscaped courtyard garden offers a sophisticated area to drink or dine.
Whether you’re on a flying visit, or nesting down for a more lengthy vacation, we want you to have the most restful and enjoyable stay. Here at The Duck, we do not stand on ceremony and whether you are sporting battered walking boots or a ballgown, you are welcome to enjoy any part of our menu anywhere. We also pride ourselves on thinking of everything so you don’t have to. Want to walk in the rain? Take advantage of our Hunter welly loan service – we’ve a pair in your size.
