The Fuzzy Duck Pub & Kitchen, Nuneaton

A couple of weeks ago Emily kindly invited me along to the opening of the Fuzzy Duck Pub & Kitchen in Nuneaton. I was really excited to try out this new gastropub and meet some fellow foodie bloggers from the Midlands.

We were lucky enough to speak to the chef who told us The Fuzzy Duck will be using local suppliers and good quality, seasonal ingredients. This means the menu will change frequently. He also told us that, in keeping with the name, they're planing to offer a variety of duck dishes and be experimental with flavour combinations.

Unfortunately due to a problem with the kitchen they were unable to offer us a full selection of dishes from the permanent menu. Teething problems are inevitable on an opening night so although disappointing it was perfectly understandable.

We were treated to some delicious morsels of food, starting with mozzarella and prosciutto bruschetta (above) with mozzarella balls and sun dried tomato (below). The tomatoes were absolutely beautiful. Flavorsome but not overpowering.

Followed by chilli and coriander prawn skewers which are available on the standard menu and are gluten free.
Sausage and mash with caramelised red onion garnish...
And cod and chorizo balls served with sweet chilli dip.
Next up were the chicken skewers with chilli and chorizo butter. This is available on the standard menu and is also gluten free!
And duck breast with mash potato on toast.
Of course the piece de resistance was desert. Bite sized chocolate brownies topped with strawberries and cream. Delicious.
Then we were offered the chance to try their Rossa Italian gelato. Well it would be rude to say no wouldn't it?
I tried the caramel and hazelnut flavours which were both heavenly and much better than the gelato I'd been eating in Sorrento.
I had a fantastic evening and met some lovely and very talented ladies.

I was disappointed that we were unable to try a full meal from the main menu, so unfortunately I can't provide you with proper review (I think another visit is in order). I can say that the food we had was good and far better than I would expect from a pub. If you're gluten free (or have relatives who are) you'll definitely want to head to the Fuzzy Duck as the range of gluten free dishes is extensive - probably the best I've seen in the Midlands!

I dined as a guest of the Fuzzy Duck Pub & Kitchen and was under no obligation to write a review. For more information, see my disclaimer.
