The Fat Duck

The Fat Duck is a three Michelin star restaurant and our standards are correspondingly high. We have an exceptional reputation and work here is precise, skilful and demanding – sometimes even a little obsessive. It is also stimulating, creative, enjoyable and fun. The Fat Duck experience is not quite a story but more of a journey, one that begins the moment our guests have booked their seat. It is based on Heston Blumenthal’s favourite nostalgic moments, full of adventure, curiosity, discovery and playfulness. Naturally the people we recruit need to have experience relevant to the job, but equally important to us is your passion, energy and determination.

The Opportunities

Our Stories

Kirri Palmer, Assistant Restaurant Manager

I joined The Fat Duck front of house team back in 2014 as a Junior Waitress and have since progressed to being part of the management team. From day one I realised that working at The Fat Duck is more than just being part of a team.; it soon became my family, my friends and my support network.

Every day I come into work I find myself surrounded by passionate individuals and make real connections with our guests.

The Fat Duck really is a place like no other! There are many aspects of the restaurant which make it unique; I feel lucky and privileged to be part of it. I have learnt so much, faced many challenges but had fun the whole way.

Working at The Fat Duck provides an inimitable experience for passionate and skilled chefs and front of house staff. Development is always encouraged, and everyone is an integral member of the team to make every visit the absolute best it can be for our guests.
