My husband and I just popped in for a quick bite and were not disappointed. The menu had plenty of choice and the waitress was incredibly helpful. We shared a chicken liver parfait and then for our main courses opted for the roast partridge and the pork belly - both dishes were outstanding We will definitely be back

I had an absolutely fantastic time. This was my second time visiting so we decided to take the kids. Was family friendly, they enjoyed the play area. Overall the atmosphere was friendly and inviting. The food was good however i felt the wine list was lacking. The staff were superb especially the waiters and waitresses. My waitress made my average... More

I live in bradford on Avon and have tried this restaurant several times. The owners are really unpleasant, they sit at tables on their laptops ignoring customers who are not being served. When the do notice you they are thoroughly unpleasant. The food can be ok but nothing special. The last time we ate our starters were terribly delayed as... More

This was one of the specials - mushroom and 'Lord of the Hundreds' bruschetta. The 'lord' turned out to be a delicious hard ewe's cheese. The mushrooms were well flavoured and some dotted about uncooked. The bread used for the bruschetta was perfect, crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. The three of us really enjoyed it. The... More

As we were visting Bradford on Avon for the day I looked on line for somewhere to have lunch and found Fat Fowl. The menu looked nice with some options that I really liked the sound of. The dining area was very nice and there were also tables at the front, although the traffic was very busy and this put... More

We ate here the other weekend and were very happy with our meal, starters were very tasty and main courses well judged aside from my only slight complaint..... my saffron crab risotto topped with red mullet could have done with a little more crab and a little larger fish fillet. My husbands halibut was massive and delicious and desserts were... More

We had dinner here mid-week and the meal was delicious. The person who took the booking over the phone was very helpful and accommodating as we didn't know exactly what time we would get there due to traffic. The atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed and the waitress was exceptionally friendly. The only slight issue was the dance class taking place... More

I can't complain about the food at all although a little pricey however I witnessed the manageress being very rude for no apparent reasons to two women who had young children, it was actually very embarrassing. As a mother with young children (who were not with me at this time) I will not be returning until I hear of a... More

I am fully aware of the situation that arose and just sorry that you didn't speak to management at the time as what you saw was the result of a particular nasty situation upstairs in the family dining area. As I said in a previous response, about this very situation, we expect staff and guests alike to be courteous and... More
