A trip to the Fat Duck as everybody says is an experience not just a meal. It is hard to write a review and not ramble on about the specifics of the food and environment but that would ruin it for you so I need...More

It doesnt get any better than this. A total experience from start to finish, everything was perfect. The only downside is the staggering cost especially the drinks, but the wine journey was fantastic and added to the theatre.

This is different to any other restaurant we have visited. It is definitely an experience, less so a meal. Yes, we were amazed at the food offerings given to us, all very modern, and 'tricky', but it felt as though we were part of the...More

This is the greatest dining experience I have had in many a year.I will not ruin the whole magical journey by describing it in any detail. Every course burst with different levels of flavour complimented by excellent wines. The waiting team headed by the imposing...More

Took my daughter here for our "journey" last week. Don't want to give anything away here, as the experience should definitely include surprise. There were so many signature moments, but I will say that it included a perfectly executed seafood course which I will always...More

My son surprised me with lunch at The Fat Duck, for Mother's Day! It will go down in our family history as the best Mother's Day ever. This was not just a fabulous meal, it was an amazing, entertaining and memorable experience: probably the best...More

For the first time we felt the full meaning of the term "mind blowing ". Originally I didn't think much of the idea of a meal being seriously evoking some childhood memories but I couldn't be more mistaken. The whole experience was so thoughtfully prepared...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We are a family of three (girl :8 yo), and family of 5 (boys : 16, 14, 4 years old) The questions are : can we bring our children but we don't book for them to eat? Because in the web for booking, if we search the available seat for odd number of people, often it's not available. But the even number, have a lot more dates available. If we have to book for our child (including the 4 yo), can we book all together for 8 people? Since we want to sit together, but the number of people that can book max only 6 people. Is there any way that if we separate the booking in two groups of four people, but we can sit all together?

I don't recommend children in the restaurant. Hire a care service at your hotel. This is a culinary experience not intended for kids.

Hey! I just booked 2 places for the 16th of August 2017 for 12:30 lunch but there has been a mix up and misunderstanding in dates between me and my friend so unfortunalty we will not be able to make it. Is there any way we can resell the spaces or get a refund?

The tickets do say non refundable when you purchase them, but hopefully if you call them and explain they may change the dates if it's far enough in advance as they usually have a fair sized wait list
