Tip: this is the man that bought the world scrambled eggs and bacon ice cream, so expect imagination, theatre, and a non traditional lunch. Bookings are 5 months in advance and the whole month is booked out in 7 minutes (check the website for opening...More

Visited there on 11/12/18 for a family occasion and was not disappointed, food was excellent as was staff and service. Yes there is a bit of theatre in the focus of meal with the storytelling but the food was extremely good if odd at times...More

Imagine that you are sitting in the some kind of lab where they are serving food. Price is like you are in Porsche shop but it is WORTH IT, oh yes if you are planning on going ring their phone because no reservation=no table

This is a difficult one, the presentation is superb but let down by the taste of the food. It’s so sad as the dishes look amazing but let down by the taste. I need to be balanced here, we save up to treat ourselves and...More

After (im)patiently waiting for the day to arrive my husband and I were just a little bit excited that we would be dining at The Fat Duck - something we had both wanted to tick off the bucket list. Well... £1000 later and it was...More

This is a very lovey experience although a bit expensive. But you are only 50 once. Before you even get there they make you feel Special. You have a storyteller (we have Eva) who calls you and explains what well happen. Most maybe not all...More

I am unsure but you have to book at least 3 months in advance and only online and it sells out really quickly. Tickets go on sale at midday and by 12.15 sold out. So you need to be on the ball if you want a certain date and... More
