Great meal with a great service. Black pudding bon bons are magic
Had a tasty dinner here last night. menu was tasty and varied. The black pudding starter was delicious, loved the sheep cheese cheeseboard. Staff v pleasant a great restaurant
Food was very nice. However, last year the food was wonderful, this time I was disappointed. The food was worth the money, but there was no comparison to our meal last year. We raved about the tastes, the experience, told people it was a mini version of Neven Maguire's. Now I'll say The Fatted Calf is nice. We were sorry we hadn't booked the Corner House, Wineport or Nine Arches again. Meringue was tasteless and textureless, strawberrys were sour, it didn't work. Some of the food was great but the high quality food experience I expected (and you had last year and in Glasson) was missing. Service was excellent.
We only wish we could return sooner, but it's a long way for us across the Atlantic Ocean to get to The Fatted Calf. Looking forward to another great meal there some day soon.
Looking forward to going back. Great food and charming service.
The food was so tasty and although not that cheap it was worth every penny!
Beautifully presented food with stunning flavors.
Alles super, nur zu laut. Man konnte sich fast nicht verständigen
Thank you for your review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your food and on the night of your visit, it was very busy, with lots of people celebrating and enjoying themselves and it can get a little noisy. We are addressing the issue.
We had a brilliant evening for a family occasion at The Fatted Calf. A superb variety of dishes and the service was great with really friendly staff. Would certainly return again and would recommend.
Fantastic meal, friendly service. Beautiful presentation of food and delicious too.
absolutely loved our meal at the fatted calf...as good a meal as you find in any major capital city, but at an affordable price. will definitely be back for more... lunch was definitely worth the 2 hour drive.
