Welcome to a magical place.

The Fat Duck, the flagship restaurant from ground breaking chef Heston Blumenthal Located in Bray, about 90min away from central London, The Fat Duck is a place that will transport you in time. Recently renovated and relocated, The Fat Duck takes you into a journey of Chef’s favorite memories of his childhood.

The journey is interactive and full of emotions. There are ‘storytellers’ rather than servers. Each chapter of the menu, which you have to read with a magnifying glass, takes you into the journey of the anticipation the the holidays, one plate and smile at a time.

Once you leave you wont be the same, you will change, you will want to come back, because there are no other place that can transport you back in time.
