If you are looking for a new place to spend a relaxing Sunday morning, or fancy a new place for date night, then I know just the place! The Hungry Duck, in Ramsbottom, is one of my favourite places to brunch & this place is getting only getting more popular by the day! This small, family run business, is starting to make a name for itself and I couldn’t recommend it more.
If you have seen my earlier blog post about Levanter Tapas, then you will already know about this little village of Ramsbottom & the food revolution that’s happening there. Located about 20 minutes’ drive from the centre of Manchester, Ramsbottom is slowly becoming the place for foodies.
If you fancy a day trip, enjoy locally sourced produce & great food then The Hungry Duck is definitely worth the trip! My boyfriend and I have been here a couple of times, for a weekend brunch date & they never disappoint. This little bistro would sit perfectly on Tib Street in Manchester, yet here it is, in the middle of the Lancashire countryside.
They offer homemade breads, condiments and real barista style coffee. Perfect for any weekend. (What more can you ask for!) Not only can this little café serve a mean Brunch, it also offers tasty seasonal menus of gastro style food. I recently spent Mother’s Day here, with the family and enjoyed some amazing food, for a great price. I have two small nieces, the staff here were amazing with them and were really accommodating to their needs. As you can see from the below pictures, the food is always of a high quality & it has a very Instagram worthy aesthetic! (Not only do they serve great food, they also make a mean cocktail, I may have enjoyed a couple!)
From the Mother’s Day set menu, had the Celeriac, apple & honey soup with fresh (homemade, of course) black onion bread.
For a main dish I had; Stone Bass, pea puree on a Croque monsieur with morel mushrooms, bacon and olive dust. The food is both rich & delicious, we all loved it.
The last time my boyfriend and I visited for brunch, he loved the full English Breakfast, complete with homemade beans & fresh sourdough bread! I had the Eggs Royale. Smoked salmon, poached eggs & hollandaise sauce on top of a proper English muffin! (Aka heaven on a plate).
This quaint little café, rivals any of the cafes in the Northern Quarter and if you’re looking for somewhere new, then don’t overlook The Hungry Duck.
