christmas week fat duck

trav Mar 31, 2008 02:31 PM

Does anyone know if Fat Duck is open between Christmas and New Year's Eve. I don't have an email address for them.

    The website is http://www.fatduck.co.uk/. It has directions about reservations and notes that they are only taken two months in advance. It has contact phone numbers in case that helps. I'm sorry - don't know about the holidays, but I'm sure they'll tell you.

      I have a distant memory that Heston closes down over Christmas for a couple of weeks as he like to spend time at home. I don't know if he does this every year.

        Looks like we have confirmation below. He's a wise man to take time off. Maybe he'll need rest time after being host at the Great British Menu do in June. :-)

      Can't vouch for this year but it was certainly closed last year (2007). Hinds Head Hotel was open, but not the Fat Duck.
