view web site ›'s insider take:

This inn has been around for 400 years, but its name only dates back to the Victorian era. Here's the story: One morning, the landlady found several of her ducks lying dead by the road, so she set about plucking them—only to discover they were very much alive. Turns out a beer barrel in the basement had leaked into the duck's feed, and they had merely passed out, drunk. Today, after you descend from one of 16 comfortable bedrooms (antique furnishings and huge modern bathrooms) into the pub, you can do your best binge-drinking-duck impression by downing pints of the inn's own home-brewed ales. These—along with the candlelit dining rooms—helped the Drunken Duck earn the Good Pub Guide's coveted "Cumbria Dining Pub of the Year" in 2003 and 2004. The Duck also makes a fine base for hikers, as it overlooks the famous Fairfield Horseshoe walk; for fly-fishing enthusiasts, there are two small, private lakes nearby stocked with wild brown trout.
