Client Reviews

"Our wedding reception at The Fat Duck was absolutely perfect and everything we wanted! Cam, Selina and the staff were incredible and nothing was an issue at the reception and the planning leading up to the wedding. Being our favourite restaurant in town, we knew the food was going to be amazing, and it was! I highly recommend The Fat Duck to everyone and anyone for their next event and dining experience. Thank you again for making our wedding reception the best!" Tara & Ollie J

"Thank you very much for hosting our wedding at your wonderful Bar & Restaurant. We had an absolutely fabulous day which you both made so easy and straightforward. Thank you for all your wonderful organisation, assistance and answers to my questions, and of course the fabulous food - everybody raved about the food. It was just a fantastic evening. Thank you again."
