Lovely dog friendly pub with a good atmosphere

Lovely dog friendly pub with a good atmosphere. Impressed with the new owner, who introduced himself to everyone who came in.
The food was good, as was the service. Would recommend.

Why ‘The Ruddy Duck’?

A Grade II listed building, The Ruddy Duck on St. Pega’s Road was originally built as a row of cottages in the late 17th century.

The pub was formerly known as The Black Bull, however, after the Peakirk Wildfowl Trust opened in 1957, it was renamed in 1964 after a species of North American duck (oxyura jamaicensis).
