To call the Fat Duck 'a Restaurant' is like calling the national history museum 'just a museum' - get ready for an experience on a monumental scale. Like the other careful reviewers, I will not give away any details on the food, wine or what is in store for your trip, but it is one you will remember. I will... More

Myself and two friends had the taster menu and it was incredible. As a lover of quality food this experience borders on too good. Anything I ate,anywhere I ate always failed to live up to what I experienced here. For everyone that reads this YOU MUST EAT HERE AT LEAST ONCE IN YOUR LIFE.....but.....try not to compare it to any... More

We had a wonderful culinary experience at This restaurant. The food was delightful with lots of surprises and the service was impeccable. The journey was sublime... An extravaganza of sight sound and aroma with attention to the minute details. Some people thought the wine list was expensive but taken in context of the price per person I thought it was... More

What an amazing experience. So different to anything we have experienced before. Our lunch was pure theatre with surprises at every turn. Although our lunch lasted well over 3 hours the time passed really quickly. Really nice personal touches were unexpected.

I have been to The Fat Duck twice, the importance here is not to do any 'spoilers', it is food, theatre, a presentation and more, in smart unpretentious surroundings. It is more than a talking point, it is somewhere that you must go at once.

As a special treat my wife and our friends booked the meal at this well known restaurant for lunch. Before our arrival we were contacted by the restaurant for further information on us to make a personal touch to the meal. It was a very well organised and magical meal. The food was very flavoursome and well executed. I once... More

A rather unusual experience. Over the course of our four hour lunch, we were brought to different "places" and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. It was not purely a dining experience, but more an adventure of senses. Highly recommended if you have never tried it, but I must admit I might not go back again. And happy to report we... More

Well I expected something special and shiver me timbers I as not let down. An experience and simply great food, flavour, service. It's expensive but not compared to opera tickets. Imagine Alice in Wonderland, no point describing the food as there is nothing I've ever eaten to compare to it Wonderland food

You feel that you already know a lot about the Fat Duck from press reviews and other sources. Notwithstanding that familiarity I had always wanted to experience this for myself and my daughter's 21st birthday provided the perfect opportunity. First off - the staff, service and attention to detail are absolutely spot on. Throughout the meal/experience the service was some... More

I will never look at food the same way again. The ideas and concept behind each dish is just mind blowing. Must visit for any foodie. Classic flavour combinations but very special presentation delivery and eating experience. Hot and cold tea ?! Crunchy cereal cold English breakfast?!???? Genius. Big plus for pokemon go players:The restaurant is near a Poke stop... More
