As a lover of classic cuisines done well rather than experimental smoking jellies, and being somewhat nonplussed by Dinner and Heston's apparent obsession with childhood memories, I didn't expect to like The Fat Duck as much as some other restaurants. For example, the one at the other end of Bray's Ferry Road. I was in for a very big surprise!... More

Bit of a strange one for me as I'd wanted to visit The Fat Duck for as long as I can remember, spent months trying to book a table then spent the entire week before hand thinking of very little else but by the end of the meal I couldn't help but feel more than a little bit disappointed. I'll... More

Somewhere between a trip to the Theater a visit to a Laboratory and the best restaurant you have ever been to. Even the customers add to the magic as the atmosphere is inclusive and the staff fuel the excitement with a big dose of enthusiasm. I will not review the food as many have before me suffice to say its... More

We have been fortunate enough to eat in some fabulous restaurants, but our visit to the Fat Duck is the most memorable restaurant experience that I have ever had. Not only was every aspect of the evening beautifully executed, but the imagination and humour that has gone into the menu is fantastic, as is the care which is taken over... More

Two years since we finally secured a place at The Duck and one should never assume that it will be your last visit. Jumped at the chance to make up a table of six, having previously eaten as a two. Very different experience for six, matches the theatre and the excitement of the experience. Very different to a more formal... 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
