About The Fatted Calf

I've been wanting to come here for quite some time (I've been out to the previous incarnation in Glasson). The food was gorgeous and the service was very efficient and pleasant.
We enjoyed the food and the wine, some wine samplers would be nice. Glad you had Jose Pariente
Good service and food
The tastiest meal we had in a long time!
Highly recommend this restaurant. Firstly for the quality of the food - it was outstanding. Fiona was wonderful to deal with - she went out of her way to assist and help with my booking. The service staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive on the night. A gem of a restaurant.
The menu was Devine! Great choice of different food! The special started was amazing. Our waiter was brill, great personality, knowledge of menu and recommendations were spot on! The atmosphere was wonderful, our seat was great too! Will be back soon!!!
Starters was very small portion not value for money! Mains were served on cold plates and food was cold. Said to waiter and he just walked off and never turned it again! The creme brûlée was served cold in the middle and not room temperature also asked for a top up of coffee as coffee was served long before desserts came and was told they don't do top ups! I felt very rushed! So I don't think I will be returning.
The food was nice, but the service was terrribbblleee!! For the price you are paying, I would expect much better service than waiting 45+ mins for the bill after we had finished our coffees. You would think they would want to get the table back for other customers. We spent most of an hour trying to call the waiters over and get out bill. Once we finally got the attention of one of the waiters and asked for the bill, another ten minutes passed before we were handed the bill. We quickly paid and left. This would honestly deter me from ever going back, and I certainly would not recommend to friends and family.
Hi Ms. Donoghue, thank you for your feedback, for which we take all points on board. We did get unexpectedly busy the night of your visit and our waiting staff were overstretched. We apologise that we let you down, we will speak to all members of staff, and will certainly improve our service in the future.
Beautiful food,relaxed friendly atmosphere,didnt feel rushed.wonderful service.it was beyond our expetations for quality and value and we will be back. Thank you for a wonderful evening
We enjoyed a lovely, relaxing meal in a very nice setting. The service was very attentive and the food was of great quality and truly delicious. The chilli beef salad was amazing and the highlight of the meal. I will definitely visit this restaurant again and I have already recommended it to friends and family.
Easily one of the finest dining experiences in the Midlands
Our waiter was amazing, so down to earth and welcoming. Food was insane, can't wait to come back
