One major flaw

My wife and I had been visiting our son's family in Bristol and we were passing through Bradford-on Avon on the way home. As it was the middle of the day it seemed to be a good place to have lunch. We were both surprised at how many places were shut on the last Sunday in August but eventually... read more

Excellent lunch - pulled pork sandwich was fantastic; sausage & mash was lovely.....both very good value...service slow but very friendly.....one of our desserts was disappointing (white chocolate and cardamon parfait with bits of Crunchie instead of chocolate honeycomb and no taste of cardamon) and they were rather expensive (£6.50 each)...the summer pudding was good though.

Lovely lunch at the Fat Fowl, Bradford on Avon, today with my daughter. It was market day locally and busy, but we were quickly and comfortably accommodated at the Fat Fowl. Prompt, but relaxed service, excellent food in this lovely restaurant

Had a lovely lunch in a child friendly atmosphere. Menu suits adults and children and food of superior quality. Definitely worth a return visit in the afternoon and in the evening to sample the dinner menu and what I can imagine to be a charming evening ambience.

We came across this restaurant whilst wandering around as we didn't want to eat in our hotel. We had a lovely cocktail to start (very reasonably priced and well made). I had pigeon to start and my boyfriend had scallops both were delicious. We then both had steak and I must admit I'm pretty fussy about my steak, when I... More

really loved Bradford on Avon, very pretty historic town with beautiful architecture, and lovely coffee shops and reataurants, especially liked The Fat Fowl and the Castle Inn, lovely walks along canal and along the river to the Tithe barn.Close proximity to Bath and good train service.

We drop in here a lot as they do consistently good food and it has a great atmosphere. Good coffee, including soya milk; lovely cakes. Lovely home made humous, great with their breads and olives, tapas-style. They made a fantastic picnic hamper for me for a surprise birthday treat, including wine, proper cutlery and several courses chosen from a menu.... More

Great meal on the first night of our holiday. Steak was lovely and so was Mum's chicken. We had had a great start to our holiday.

We called on the off-chance for an evening meal as we were passing through the town. We weren't disappointed. We has a fabulous meal, served by very polite helpful staff. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, and if we lived here it would certainly become one of our regular eateries. Well done all!

Group of 50 for a family birthday party. Lovely food - we chose italian tapas style. Owners were also very helpful in planning the event. Staff on the evening were helpful and attentive.
