Like a hermit crab in search of a bigger and better shell, The Fat Duck’s progress has been punctuated by the periodic renovation and restructuring of its premises. The restaurant’s latest refurbishment has offered Heston the opportunity to celebrate The Fat Duck’s milestone twentieth anniversary in 2015 in an extraordinary fashion, while at the same time fulfilling a long-held dream to open a restaurant in Australia.

And so The Fat Duck will vanish from Bray and appear in Melbourne for a six-month relocation in the award-winning Crown Towers hotel in Southbank, Melbourne’s urban centre and cultural hub.

Whilst in Melbourne, the restaurant will offer the same unique dining experience, with relaxed service and our full Menu, taking you on a journey of history, nostalgia, memory and emotion – a multi-sensory phantasmagoria.
