Excellent for families with small children

Good coffee/snack/restaurant with a busy lively atmosphere. During the day it is very toddler friendly, so appeals to young families especially. The owner very welcoming.

We ate here recently as the weather wasn't great and we had 3 small children with us. Upstairs is a little play as well as dining tables so we could eat and the children could play safely. I would recommend this as the staff were very helpful and the meals tasty and reasonable in choice and cost.

We visited the Fat Fowl for dinner on a Friday evening, having reserved a table a few weeks in advance - it was lucky that we did as the restaurant was very busy and we soon found out why. We both chose the baked camembert starter, which came with very tasty bread & a wonderful onion chutney. I then had... More

We had heard good reports about Fat Fowl but thought it looked more like a daytime restaurant but we went anyway and were very pleasantly surprised - it was a great dinner venue with some excellent food and very reasonable prices. It is very difficult to run a top operation day/night but they seem to have nailed it. A must... More

A lovely cafe in Bradford-on-Avon. We have spent many hours playing here with our two young children. There is a fantastic play area made for children under about five years upstairs. It is always very clean and welcoming, unlike some other soft play type play areas. The staff are really good with the children and very accommodating of heating up... More

Fantastic! The owners are in that well earned position where they can always rely on returning customers. Sometimes the waitresses have to be reminded you are waiting to be served!

We picked this restaurant to celebrate my 50th birthday and was so pleased we did. The service was excellent with the staff friendly but they were not intrusive and left us to enjoy our food, conversation and laughter. The food was delicious but the star had to be the amazing 3 chocolate pudding.

Found this cafe by accident on a 'very' quiet Easter Monday. Lovely interior and staff. Sausage bap was smashing. Proper sausages and the bap was not too big. Staff very friendly and it felt like home.

We had a private function/party in the upstairs room for a 30th birthday, party of 16 adults and 2 children. I cannot fault anything about the evening! The food was excellent, myself and the birthday boy agreed the roast pork belly was probably the best pork we have ever had, the lamb was amazing and those that had other courses... More
