The Scruffy Duck is a piece of Norton history- it was built around 1870 as an Inn & coach house called The White Swan.
Known by locals as The Mucky Duck, we wanted to preserve this history with our new name!
When we started our renovations the building had been well used and needed some serious TLC, we have poured a lot of love into the building, using reclaimed and vintage pieces to bring it back to life as a traditional British pub Norton can be proud of. Our panelling throughout the building is 100+ years old, with our bar front being reclaimed from a welsh church. The tiles in front of the bar are original Art Deco. Our aim all along was to bring the pub back to life while also bringing back all the original features which have been lost over the years. Take a look at our progress shots and video to see how far we’ve come.
