Auchenflower

Deer Duck Bar is like a plush old world lounge from an English manor that has been beamed up onto Milton Rd in Auchenflower next to its sibling Deer Duck Bistro.

Occupying the sizeable space that was once the Night Owl mini supermarket, the entry to Deer Duck Bar is via a door with a historic painting of an English maiden.

Inside the lamp and candlelit room, a striking wood panelled bar takes pride of place, with French Renaissance-style tables and velvet chairs occupying the street side, and, towards the rear, is a parlour-like space with antique armchairs.
