The Fat Duck

I can honestly say that I have never had an evening like last night.

By a magical twist of fate I managed to get a cancellation at short notice to celebrate my partner's 40th birthday. I figured that you are only 40 once and that it would be cheaper to visit The Fat Duck than throw a party for him. (This is how I managed to justify spending the cost of a months food shopping budget on one meal). I am so glad I did.

We chose the taster menu - although a couple of the courses filled me with trepidation. Snails were never on the top of my 'list of things to eat' - until now anyway - they tasted pretty damn good!

I felt that the entire evening was as much of a theatrical show as it was a damn good meal. Athought I never expected the eating to last a whole four hours - it was definately worth the three hour round trip to get to the restaurant.

All in all - the food was amazing. The service impecible.

I would recommend anyone with an adventurous palate to give it a go.

Definately worth the cost and effort to get a table.
