My wife managed to book a table for my 30th Birthday. We started the night by having a drink in The Hinds Head ( Hestons pub just a short walk away). As soon as we arrived they knew who we were and every member of staff wished me a Happy Birthday. The food was sensational and service outstanding. Thank you... More

We had tried to book online from Hong Kong two months ahead but without success. When we got into London, my husband called and they happened to have a cancellation so there was an opening. We leapt at this opportunity and they did not disappoint. We took my parents and they both loved the experience. It was fantastical mesmerising culinary... More

One of the best places I've eaten at. We tried the tasting menu and it was fantastic. Every thing about this place is perfection. The staff are friendly and helpful.

I went to the Fat Duck with my brother, having been lucky enough to get a cancellation in August 2014. The atmosphere was great, professional service, every courtesy looked after. Several staff served us throughout the meal, it was exciting. The price tag was hefty, but we expected that, we didn't go for matched wine as we didn't want to... More

I've been wanting to dine at The Fact Duck ever since I first heard about the place and when I first watched Heston's feasts but with a hefty £250 price tag there was always the worry that it would disappoint and not meet my expectations. I was lucky to get a reservation for myself and a friend as a late... More

Yes it's expensive & incredibly difficult to get a booking (we achieved ours by accident), but this was the most wonderful restaurant experience I have ever had (& we've tried plenty). If you can, go the whole hog & try one of the matched wine options, for the full on experience. Plate after plate arrives of divine food combinations, presented... More

Took the wife here for an anniversary a few years ago and wanted to ensure our enjoyment was shared with all. It was a fantastic restaurant, the atmosphere was personal, the service was second to none and the food was magic.
