I had been looking forward to The Fat Duck experience for some time, making a reservation is really difficult, in fact its a pain in the neck trying to get through, so I was delighted when we finally managed it. Considering the price I left very very disappointed. My biggest complaint is the staff, we were one of the last... More

What a fabulous experience! The meal was extraordinary, the food sublime, pure theatre, never to be forgotten. Love, love love. But, Heston, why employ all those French people in England? They were so rude, arrogant, and full of you know what. Surely you could find British people to work for you.

My Fiancée and I managed to get a cancellation booking which we were very lucky to get, we had both wanted to go for years. The whole experience certainly lived up to our preconceptions and more- you have to approach the courses with a completely open mind as it will more than likely be like nothing you have ever eaten/experienced...

I bought wife here in October 2013 for a surprise 40th Birthday treat. I have to say we were both very impressed. It is a real experience, I thought the atmosphere would stuck up and serious, but actually I was pleasantly surprised to find it very relaxed and inviting. The food is simply an adventure, being a big eater I... More

We went to the fat duck...what can I say. Flawless. From the service to the food and ambience. Would highly recommend it to anyone that appreciates a great dining experience. Save up as it doesn't come cheap!!!!

The best dinning experience I've ever had. Yes it did cost a small fortune and I could only ever afford to do it once, but it is worth every penny. They really do look after you there. It doesn't matter if your rich or poor your treated the same. The food is nothing like I've ever had before. The only... More

We had a fantastic dinner with friends for my husband's birthday. We all enjoyed the fabulous theatre of the evening with many very clever and memorable dishes. It wasn't the best food that we have ever eaten in a restaurant but it was such an experience that we are so glad we went. Brilliant!

Special occasion, went with an open mind for a new eating experience, which it certainly was. It was a real education to see and taste food presented so uniquely, involving all the senses. Totally different high end dining. The cost is painful, as is the wine, but it is an experience to embrace and go for. A very long lunch... More

We attended The Fat Duck for a Christmas dinner for our work. The food was fantastic although every one at our table did not appreciate the menu or the incredible flavours and textures. Their loss our gain.It came to the point where the chef attended our table briefly and made some suggestions. All well received and made the night just... More

As many others, wanted to try it to see if the hype was well founded. Went thinking it wouldn't be. It was however superb. Food was like no other restaurant we have ever tried. Went for the taster wine (cheaper option) that too was excellent. As you would expect the bill is hefty £1700 for 4 people. But it was... More
