    Beautiful food, in taste and presentation, by staff who were enthusiastic about their role and rightly proud of what they were bringing to their customers. Lovely setting particularly the bar area which was decorated in an inviting fashion, and comfortable. The dining area could use some of this ambience, perhaps a touch of dark dramatic decoration would work well to bring the 2 rooms together.

    There’s something missing at L’Ortolan. I couldn’t put my finger on it. Service was excellent. Food was great but several of my dishes were very salty. It may have been me! Didn’t love the Indoor setting - it was like being in someone’s Manor House with a conservatory. Tasting menu was varied & interesting.

About the restaurant

This spacious red-brick Georgian building – a former rectory – sits under a creeper cloak, surrounded by mature grounds. Modern cooking uses high end ingredients and offers interesting contrasts in textures and temperatures. French influenced dishes sit alongside those of a more British persuasion.
