We booked our Valentines evening meal at the Fat Duck, our first meal there. There was only one person serving 9/10 tables, so this slowed the service down. The food was very good. A quiet location, ideal for English speakers. Unsure if we will return,...More

Was informed over the telephone of a large party of 16 arriving and so was given the option of arriving before them - a good idea! Good friendly service, tasty food and would definitely return. The sticky toffee pudding was to die for!

Mushroom starter was tinned mushrooms! Baked Camembert was undercooked and tasteless. We did say we were in impressed with the starter then found we were also unimpressed with the main course. It looked fancy enough but was actually tasteless and not at all impressed. None...More

I had visited with my son in September and we had enjoyed the experience. This late October Saturday lunch time the high expectations were maintained. We both really enjoyed our meal - the trio of soups as a starter was excellent!

This place is lovely in both Summer and Winter, we have been at both times. In winter the log burner is roaring making the atmosphere cosy. The beef bourguignone was lovely, as was the sea bass but the Confit du canard was under cooked. They...More
