The Fat Duck

A prominent position on a corner site means it’s hard to bypass this gastropub. Not that you’d want to. Good times go hand-in-hand with an extensive menu (so there’s something to please young and old). The welcome is warm, the beer is cold and the food is hail and hearty with pub classics always popular. A real crowd pleaser.
