MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Hidden under a creeper cloak and surrounded by mature grounds is L’Ortolan, set within a red-brick Georgian rectory. It’s a spacious, comfortable place and was one of the first restaurants to have a chef’s table, so if you’re in a party of four sitting in the heart of the kitchen, is always a good bet.

Choose between two tasting menus (with both vegetarian and vegan versions available) or opt for something from the concise à la carte (lunch only). Complex modern dishes let the true flavours of top quality ingredients shine through and offer interesting contrasts in textures and temperatures. You’ll find dishes with French influences, such as John Dory with snails and parsley, sitting alongside those of a more British persuasion, like Yorkshire grouse with blackberry and walnut.
