The Dawdling Duck Mobile Bar Hire

Quirky mobile bar hire in Kent

Quack, quack! Sorry but we couldn’t resist. We LOVE a mobile bar here at Toast.Life, and Kent’s latest addition is no exception. Ladies and gentlemen, may we present to you – The Dawdling Duck.

The Dawdling Duck is a show stopping vintage horsebox that has been converted into a fully functioning bar. Brilliantly described as ‘an old English pub on wheels’, this fully licensed, family run business is based in Bearsted, Kent, but of course this duck can paddle. Whether it’s a party in a field, garden or even in a spacious tent or marquee, The Dawdling Duck can rock up and delight your guests with its selection of delicious drinks come rain or shine.

And from the host’s point of view, The Dawdling Duck’s range of pricing packages make life a doddle (or say I saw dawdle…?), with ‘The Mallard Duck’ package essentially acting as a pay-as-you-go cash bar which your guests pay for themselves (and with prices cheaper than the pub there shouldn’t be any grumbles), ‘The Tufted Duck’ covers unlimited drinks for 2 hours, ‘The Ruddy Duck’ covers up to 6 hours or you can go all out with ‘The Goldeneye Duck’ which provides unlimited drinks for the entire duration of the party (10 hours max) – woo hoo!

The Dawdling Duck comes with 2 trained members of staff to serve your lucky guests, or for larger events of over 130 guests, 3 members of staff will be included within the price and they’d be happy to wander amongst the crowd and top up guests’ glasses. Prices also include ice, glass hire and/or plastics for drinks served from the bar, meaning there are no hidden costs, so you can just relax and enjoy the party, and admire your awesome horsebox bar of course!
