Welcome to The Strawbury Duck Pub & Restaurant

Situated amongst the hills, forests and reservoirs of Entwistle, The Strawbury Duck has long been one of Bolton’s landmark pubs. Famous in days gone by for its hospitality and beautiful location it has been brought back to life as a traditional pub focusing on quality food and great cask ales.

The Strawbury Duck is an Inn for all seasons with cosy fires in the winter and a welcoming Beer garden in the summer. The heart of the Strawbury Duck is its bar with its old beams, an open fire, numerous pictures, comfy chairs & a cosy, welcoming atmosphere.

What’s a village pub if it doesn’t serve the whole community? That’s why children will always be welcome at the Strawbury Duck as well as bikers, walkers, mountain bikers and even dogs. The Strawbury Duck also caters for larger parties and occasions including weddings, birthdays and funerals.

When we say something is local we mean local. Now, obviously we cannot source everything within a 10 mile radius, however our pork is bred by us in a field some 2/3 miles away in Belmont, we sell local cask ale and our cheese board really is a taste of Lancashire!

We have 5 B&B bedrooms, which will provide comfortable and cosy accommodation for you to get away from it all! You can book your room via Booking.com or call us on 01204 852013 for more information.
