My partner and I visited The Fat Duck yesterday. There simply aren't enough superlatives to describe the food, experience and service! From the moment we were greeted at the entrance door to when we departed the service we received was nothing short of impeccable. I don't want to describe too much about the dishes and the 'journey' as it would... More

This is my second visit to the Fat Duck. The first post refurbishment. It was a truly astonishing and outstanding meal. It is a theatrical and magical experience. Some of the dishes are as good as I have had. Often challenging in flavour and texture but brilliant. Service impeccable and in particular excellent wine service. Wine flight chosen and each...

I can honestly say the food was a massive massive let down. I went there for my birthday 17th Jan with my 2 friends and partner. We was all massively disappointed. Flavours in the food was overpowering. Looked really nice but had the most awful taste. There was nothing that wowed us or even filled our tummies. The wine pairing... More

There is always a stigma behind gimmicks in fine dining. Or rather fine dining as a gimmick itself. But Heston celebrates that; in fact the 20+ dishes we were served that evening were nothing short of fun, playful and surprising. The Fat Duck experience is a recreation of Heston's childhood memories, and he "invites" you into his whimsical world as... More

The restaurant will not open early. If you are early, go to there sister pub for a drink. As the premium for the meal is high, so does the expectation. Remember to reply their email so that they will give you surprises during the dinner. The foods and their presentations were above average. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive.... More

I'm lucky enough to have eaten here three times now. Once about 15 years ago (!) and then last march for my birthday and then as I enjoyed it sooooo much, the next excuse I could think of to go there was last August when I treated my mum on her birthday. It's difficult to describe how good an experience... More

There's not one thing that I could think of that made the entire experience any less excellent than it was. The food is superb. It's fun, innovative and - importantly - really tasty. This is an experience, one that I would love to have again. Highly recommend. And worth every last penny.

No words can describe the experience that we had. Our travelling daughter made a surprise visit home for Christmas and had booked the three of us in to the Fat Duck. We didn't really know what to expect. We knew it would be good....but it was an absolutely amazing and magical experience. How someone can develop such a magical experience... More

A true celebration for the senses. Every course had me exploring new tastes and enjoying a new culinary adventure. The food was magical and the exprience itself was incredible. The level of detail is amazing and the way that the meal captures your imagination and evokes memories from beginning to end is sensational. The wine flight is well worth doing.... More

Just got back... I'd been looking forward to this for months, if not years... THE restaurant on my 'want to ever eat there' list. So went there for my 30th and my dad's 60th birthday combined and I must say, Heston and his team did not disappoint. An amazing array of flavours, surprises, great wines, great looking dishes and an... More
