New Year’s Eve at the Duck 

After the success of last year’s format, we’re rolling it out again (don’t fix what ain’t broke)… A different kind of New Year’s Eve party is coming to The Malthouse restaurant. Get on the list by calling 01869 278099. Priced at £70/head enjoy a relaxed evening of drinks on arrival and filling your bellies with a beautiful array of canapes, roving nibbles and food stations. This festive feast will be complimented and worked off by our special boogie-inducing guests, Seduce Band, who have provided entertainment at The Ritz, Kew Gardens and Blenheim Palace and worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse and Right Said Fred and provided after show parties for Status Quo and Ronan Keating

Please note: this menu doesn’t go live until 1st December, pricing/exact details may be subject to change,after a number of large party no-shows last year, we now require a deposit at the time of booking to safeguard tables of 10 or more
