L'Ortolan is set in a Grade II listed former vicarage in beautiful grounds, close to the bustle of Reading yet firmly in the Berkshire countryside. The dining room extends from the main building into a light and airy conservatory. For the more adventurous diners the chef's table is in the heart of the kitchen where you can soak up the atmosphere during a busy service and enjoy a succession of exquisite food and wine pairings. It's held a Michelin star since 2003, and now under the current Head Chef Tom Clarke (since 2015) enjoys high end French cuisine with traditional flavours mixed with modern recipes.
There are 3 private dining rooms available at this property hosting between 8 and 22 guests.
