Lovely building, open and airy a with conservatory feel. Staff helpful. Disappointed with dry bean burger. It could have done with a tasty sauce. Steak roll, lacked steak in a tough roll and wilted salad leaves. Macaroni cheese was very good. Chairs need a clean.

I was delighted that my choice of restaurant was the correct one. Scallops as starter were cooked beautifully, as was the pork fillet with black rice. All delicious. This place is quite tricky to find, but is obvious just to the right north of the...More

We stopped here for a cuppa and we were not disappointed. Good decor and a great looking menu, which we will return to sample.

Based in the original site of Bradford on Avon’s post office, The Fat Fowl has got fine local dining sorted. Featuring rustic wooden tables and chairs, muted colours and an abundance of freshly cut flowers, the Fat Fowl is simple yet smart. The proprietors are passionate about provincial food, sourced locally where possible. Daily fresh fish from Brixham, local West Country cheese, homemade chutneys, freshly baked breads and home made desserts are just some of the wonderful things that keep a steady stream of regulars coming back. If that doesn’t convince you, their chef won Chef of the Year 2008 in Wiltshire Life Initiative. For quality in value in the area, the Fat Fowl delivers.
