Dirty Duck pub
The Dirty Duck is a is situated on the waterside of the river Avon in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon. It's a great post theatre spot, the welcome is always friendly and the service good even when the pub is full. There is a buzz after the each show with everyone discussing what they have just seen, sometimes with the actors that were in the show.
A pub since 1738, but was known as The Black Swan since 1776. The new name originated from the American GI's that camped over the river in the Second World War.
If you're after a traditional English pub, with a theatrical atmosphere, this is a must for you.
