Latest review:

I was extremely disappointed with this place. For the amount of money it costs, you would at least expect the food to taste nice. Two of the dishes made me feel sick, they were disgusting. I under stand that part of the experience is food science, however, it still needs to be palatable and half of this food wasn't. One of the courses was meant to be of the seaside, and it tasted like rotten fish. Additionally, they have the cheek to put a service charge on to your final bill, it cost us £1000 for three people, at that price, surely Mr Heston can afford to pay his staff a decent wage, rather than putting it on the customer. Granted, the service was excellent. The Fat Duck is an experience, however, only if you can afford to throw away hundreds of pounds on food which doesn't even taste nice. I've been to several Michelin Star restaurants and this one is by far the worst. I definitely won't be returning.
