The Spotted Duck

Read about the Wordpress website we designed for The Spotted Duck Tea Room

Project Description

Located in Fitling, East Yorkshire, The Spotted Duck Tea Room is a cosy and charming cafe which boasts impeccable rural hospitality, picturesque scenery and delicious food.

They already had a website but it was a free ‘Google Sites’ website with only one page and very little information. We met with Helen, the owner of The Spotted Duck, at their tea room to find out what she wanted from a new website.

We designed a brand new website for The Spotted Duck using their pink and green colour scheme and using their duck logo imagery across the website. Their new website has 7 pages including a page to display their menu as well as pages which provide information about their room hire and outside catering services.

The new Spotted Duck website has a ‘Book Now’ page which has a Quandoo booking widget embedded so that visitors on the website can easily make a booking at the tea room without leaving the website. We made sure to include a button to this page on the homepage so that visitors can easily find it.

In the footer of the website we placed a Tripadvisor widget to show off their latest reviews from Tripadvisor. They are very active on Facebook so we also placed a Facebook feed in the footer to display their latest Facebook posts.

We included a gallery on the homepage of the website which is linked to their Instagram account and displays the most recent 8 images. This is very easy for the client to update as they simply have to add a new photo to their Instagram account using the mobile app and this is automatically pulled through to the website.

As with all the websites we build, The Spotted Duck site is powered by WordPress and is fully responsive so that it looks great on all devices including mobiles and tablets.
