I like Heston and his philosophy a lot and was waiting for a long time for that right moment. My birthday and our daughter's graduation seemed sufficient. My biggest concern going to the Fat Duck was that we have read about it and seen it on TV so many times. Would there be any surprise left for us? Will they... More

I was there for lunch to celebrate a special occasion with a group of friends. Having dined in many Michelin star restaurants I was very excited about eating at the fat duck, as it was a place I always wanted to visit... But what a disappointment... the food is way too experimental and quirky. You leave feeling hungry. E.g whiskey... More

Celebrated my 50th birthday at the Fat Duck and it was great. They really look after you and plan the meal around you and things that had happened in your past. Great food and such theatre. Kerri our waitress was fantastic and a credit to the establishment. She will go far. I would definitely go back.

What can I say about this place that hasn't already been said? My wife booked this meal for me as my birthday present, and given the amount of positive reviews about this place, my expectation was sky high, and I was NOT disappointed!! It may sound pretentious to say this, but it genuinely was more an experience rather than just... More

Challenging, interesting, different, well executed but overall felt a bit gimmicky. Exceptional expertise but for me not as delicious as other three star meals I have eaten. The wine pairings also felt sometimes bizarre with an average sommelier.

I am not sure this is really about going for a meal despite 17 courses! It is more about drama and theatre as food is deconstructed and reconstructed around an ongoing theme. The taste and textures were and endless assault on the sense. Like no where I've ever been.

Extremely creative culinary voyage lasting 4 hours with intense tastes throughout and first class attentive service. Food was unique. I wouldn't bother with the wine tasting option if we went again as the wine list has lots of good choice but it was interesting and creative ( never had Georgian wine before). Highly recommended but very hard to get a... More

We dined here for my wife's 40th birthday. It had been her dream to come here for years and it didn't disappoint. Its not just the food, but the theatre of the experience. Yes its ridiculously expensive, but the 4 hours of dining 'experience' is worth it. Heston and his team take you on a 'journey' to recreate memories. The... More

The overall impression we were given by the Fat Duck was that we should be grateful that the world famous restaurant had allowed us to be their guests rather than us being made to feel special. There were some minor issues with the booking team. The pub next door linked to the Fat Duck (where you have to go if... More
