Scruffy Duck Food


From the kitchen, we serve British pub food at its best, made using the freshest locally sourced ingredients.
You can enjoy a hearty portion of one of our delicious main meals in the dining room - try our home made sausages - or relax in the snug and graze on some home made bar snacks (the scotch eggs are GOOD).
Either way our food is honest, home cooked and high quality! See our sample menu below, with daily specials.
Open for Food:
Monday to Saturday: Breakfast 9am-11.30am. 12pm-8pm.
Sunday: Breakfast 9am-11.30am. 12pm-6pm.

Scruffy Duck Drinks


From lager, ale and cider to spirits- we have a great range of drinks to keep you hydrated!

We pride ourselves on our extensive wine list - some of which you won’t see anywhere else in Teesside.

We offer pairings with our delectable food menu to help you best enjoy your visit!

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.
