The Fat Duck crowns its 25th anniversary with a grand opening

The 3 Michelin-starred The Fat Duck, which has been closed for 5 months due to the pandemic, will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a grand opening on 15 August.

The Fat Duck, one of the most iconic restaurants in the world, whose 25th anniversary and post-pandemic opening coincides with the same day, will celebrate this special day with a grand opening. The three Michelin-starred restaurant will celebrate its reopening and special day with its guests with a new menu series called ‘Anthology’. The mastermind of The Fat Duck, Heston Blumenthal, and his talented team will give guests a special experience with their unique culinary history and some signature dishes that have earned the Fat Duck its world-famous success with its new menu ‘Anthology’, created to crown 25 years of success. It means diners will once again have the opportunity to sample some of his most famous dishes, including snail porridge and crab ice cream.

Blumenthal said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be reopening The Fat Duck after so many months of closure, and even more thrilled that this reopening marks our 25th anniversary. The Fat Duck is my pride and joy; it has made me who I am today. It has allowed me to explore my curiosity, develop new techniques and concepts and understand more about the role of our senses, our imagination and ultimately our relationship with food.

“I am so honored and humbled to be celebrating 25 years and I want to say a huge thank you to The Fat Duck’s phenomenal team – past and present – and to all the guests who have walked through our doors over the years, who I hope have been left with a little of the magic that we strive to deliver. It’s been an incredible journey so far, and I cannot wait to share what the next phase will bring.”

The yearlong Anthology journey will comprise four different menus coinciding with the seasons, and a special Christmas menu. For those who want to experience the entire Anthology journey, diners can book a Season Ticket, giving them access to all five of the Volumes throughout the year.
