    We too had a wonderful 13 nights at Fatboys - the same time as Adrian and his family. We had a memorable 2015 Christmas day with awesome lobster - how we have missed the lobster since coming home! Manu, to you and all your wonderful staff, Panda, Timothy, Sarah, Tema, Watson and some other beautiful people whose names I can never pronounce, let alone try to write! You are all wonderful. Manu, you run a great "ship" there. We loved the small numbers of guests - 20 max I think. The other guests were all lovely and interesting people. You will always be remembered. What an amazing part of the world, so beautiful and so historic too. I want to go back and take a good quality underwater camera, the fish variety and numbers is mind blowing! Thank you all at Fatboys and we wish you all happiness and health.
