Nick Davies left this review about The Duck on the Pond

Huge recently refurbished Charles Wells pub which, remarkably, retains a little of its thirties roadhouse origins. In its heyday it would have been a pit stop on the trunk route between Coventry's car factories and the south coast ports.

There's a central servery, dining room to the left, fairly pubby lounge to the right.
The garden out the front would be improved by the removal of the muzak. Pisppoor beer selection, just Bombardier and Oakham JH, four pumps unused. We stuck to lager like the other four or five customers. Long Itch has better pubs. OK, every other pub in Long Itch is better.

I've been to a lot of pubs - and this is one of the oddest.

Huge building - one room to the right on entry looked full of the detritus from last night. The main bar has lots of high stools and maybe three tables and then another room of the left seems to be setup for fine dining.

8 real ale pumps - four completely unused and only two of the other bank of four on. Bombardier and Black Sheep Holy Grail. I chose the later and it was in very good nick.

Got the feeling the place was being run as a hobby rather than a business and could have a lot more to offer. Maybe they don't get too much trade.

A Charles Welles large roadside gastro pub, specialising in Mediterranean food. It’s about a 20 minute walk from the canal.
It was far too busy and noisy for our liking so we didn’t venture in.
