If you're a foodie then this has to be on top of your list. Heston shows that he is on a different level and every aspect of the culinary experience is displayed here. Service, ambience and presentation are supreme. Book well in advance to avoid disappointment. It was like a dream come true coming here because I've watched so many... More

Its like watching a magic show, but only you get to put it in your mouth afterwards. Incredibly imaginative courses. Food was generally good, although two portions of Sound of the Sea (aunt opted out and didn't want it to go to waste) made my tummy feel a little queazy. Overall, not a restaurant to go for food per se,... More

The restaurant is located in a picturesque village and the actual building is very discreet - not what I imagined for a World Renowned Restaurant but this added to the mystery and experience that was about to happen. From the moment you walk in you are made to feel welcome and the whole experience from start to finish was breathtaking.... More

The tasting menu has been publicized in many places, so I will not bother describing it - suffice to say that the multi-sensory approach of Heston Blumenthal (e.g. the sea -portion...) is just what can be expected from a chef of this level. Japanese influences were here and there, also in the choices of the sommelier. I did find that... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to have lunch at this amazing restaurant. It was one of our bucket list and had to be done despite feeling guilty about such an extravagance. Dish after dish we were wow-ed! A theatrical afternoon with wonderful sights and tastes. A once in a life time experience. Service was impeccable. See you in... More

I took my husband to the fat duck for his 40th, and it was one of the best meals I have ever had the theatrics of it were excellent and certainly added an extra something to the meal. The service was impeccable, from the moment you walk through the door, the attention you get is as though you are the... More

I tried booking online for a few times and could only get this slot in July. We were so looking forward to it. We intentionally book it for lunch as it will take 3 hours, as told. The dinning room was cozy and comfortable. Our table was by the window with some natural light. Good for lunch. Staff were professional.... More

Simply my best food experience to now. We went for celebrating my son 18th birthday and went for the full experience. Simply outstanding service, food, wine card, and the whiskey gelatine to finish... Highly recomended

My wife and I celebrated our London trip by heading out to Bray for lunch at the fat duck. We went for lunch and really liked the fact that we got to see the English countryside on the drive over! Our extensive menu included a variety of dishes (if you can call it that). I have never seen such preparation,... More

Even if you are an experienced guest in the world of Haute Cuisine - Heston Blumenthal's "The Fat Duck" brings it all to a new level. Cosy atmosphere, perfect (very young and international) staff and a feast for all senses. It's one of the "once in a lifetime" experiences you should not miss....
