Think this is probably my favourite ever dining experience. Food was mind blowing and service was typical 3 star standard. Absolutely loved it. Will return once their renovation is complete.

A disappointing overall experience. The plus points, albeit few, were the local area was nice and the staff were friendly, polite and talkative. For me, nausea kicked in during the third course, which persisted and worsened over the evening. Only after 48 hours was my stomach fully settled. My girlfriend also felt sick later on in the evening and recovered... More

It's hard to know where to start! We had the wine recommendation with the Taster Menu - we went for the £129 wine menu option which was the cheapest, mainly because we didn't feel our palates were up to the more expensive options! My wife is gluten intolerant and declared the gluten free bread to be the best she had... More

its rare to have a gustatory experience that makes you feel like you've been to an attraction, dined & entertained all in one. Well this is it. thought getting to The Fat Duck would be inconvenient but it was easy to get a train from london and get there fairly quickly. there is a short 10 Min taxi ride from... More

A tick on my bucket list. If its not in yours, I suggest you add it. First, how to find it. The sign is difficult to see especially at night so go slow when you are on that road. When you see the Hinds Head Pub, The Fat Duck should be right before Hinds Head on the right with the... More

If my dear grandmother were still alive, I am afraid I would just have to sell her to fund another trip to the Fat Duck...seriously, this was incredible. And I wasn't sure I was going to like it... My wife and I were very lucky to be treated to a meal here which must count as one of the best... More

Yes it's a lot of money but it isn't something you do every day. The food is a show in itself but what made the visit so special were the staff - attentive (but no hovering), amusing and relaxed. We've been lucky enough to dine in some exceptional restaurants and it really is the staff that sets this one apart.

I was recently (and completely) spoilt by my fiancée and treated to a surprise birthday dinner here and the experience was unlike any restaurant I've ever been too before! I won't go into details as I do not want to spoil it for anyone who is lucky enough to go but we had the 14-course dinner (that's right, 14 courses)... More

First dined here in 2007 and took the opportunity to repeat the experience as a friend couldn't use his booking. We had the tasting menu along with the suggested wines which when dining at this level is worthwhile. You get to try some high end ones that you might not normally choose and the wine waiter was well informed and... More
