About the Dog & Duck

The Dog & Duck started life as a working horse box which we’ve personally transformed to a beautiful and elegant mobile bar. If you are looking for a bar to hire, it has everything you need for a special celebration, event or party.

We are experienced publicans, giving you the confidence that your occasion is being supported by people who know how to deliver the best service ensuring you get the best value. We know everyone wants something a little bit different which is why the Dog & Duck can adapt to your event and make it unique to you. We can provide a tailor-made drinks menu; hand picking your drinks and adapting the Dog & Duck to your chosen theme.

We want you to have the best experience and we are happy to work with you from the beginning. We provide a fully stocked licensed bar with electricity, vast product range, bespoke menu suited to your budget, experienced and professional staff, cash and card payment facilities, glassware and a bar area for guests to mingle.

If you hire us, we will provide everything you need, taking away any unnecessary stress.
