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!
A brief history of Entwistle, the name derives from the old English ened and twisla which means a river fork frequented by ducks.
The name was recorded at Hennetwisel in 1212, Ennetwysel in 1276 and Entwissell in 1311. Entwistle is situated in a fork between Edgworth brook and a smaller tributary. Entwistle was originally a township in the chapelry of Turton which was part of the large ecclesiastical parish of Bolton Le Moors.
