The Fat Duck

I really wanted to love this meal. Alas, it was not the great experience that the price would have you believe. Service was overly fussy (removing the water bottle from my hand whilst I was pouring myself a glass is very 1990). Dishes like sound of the sea and the snail porridge that have been on the menu since forever were underwhelming. Mad Hatter's Tea Party.. bouillon simply not very tasty. A bit lukewarm. Just like the rest of the meal.
Overall, very disappointed. Great shame. I wouldn't come back and I would go as far to say that I would actively discourage people from going. There are many better restaurants out there that do fabulous food these days.

I made a lunch reservation for two in March 2014. On the 'Fat Duck' day, my friend was very sick and she could not make it to the lunch. To honor the reservation, I had lunch alone in Fat Duck. The service and food were ok. However, just now I realized that I was charged twice. I paid 229 pounds in the restaurant, and there was another charge of 175 pounds on the credit card.
I emailed the reservations manager about the wrong billing. This person said the charge was due to reduction of party. I am feeling very disappointed, as this is the most expensive meal that I ever have, and I have to pay the double price (total of 404 pounds). During the meal, restaurant staff did not offer any extra food, or offer food to take away. I had one meal only, but paid for two meals. This restaurant owe me a meal now :(
