"Bray - home of the best restaurant in the UK" Bray by sue_stone

Bray Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 161 photos

Bray is a small village located close to the town of Maidenhead, in Berkshire, west of London. This unassuming place is home to the best restaurant in the UK - The Fat Duck.

We headed to Bray one winters day specifically to have lunch at the famous restaurant, and it was well worth the trip.

Full details of our lunch can be found under the Restaurant Tip, and photos of the 18 courses are shown in the travelogues. It was an amazing experience!

In May 2008 we returned to Bray to have lunch at the Hinds Head pub, which is owned by the Fat Duck people, but serves up a very different type of food.

    Looking through this page before breakfast is - hell!!!! Wow, what an exceptional experience! I can imagine that it was more of an extravaganza than a typical 17 course meal..... Thanks for taking us along!!!

    What a fascinating place! I've read about The Fat Duck before, and am tempted to visit. Some of the dishes sound very strange to me though!

    Didn't you feel a bit awkard when taking sooo many photos in such a posh restaurant? By the way, which is the first best restaurant in the world?

    Some of those dishes look like miniature architectural masterpieces rather than food!! Amazing photos hun - you must have spent more time taking pics than eating! ;))
