L’ortolan, located in the beautiful village of Shinfield, is Reading’s only Michelin starred restaurant.
Chefs Alan Murchison and Nick Chappell are passionate about their cooking, but ensures that the same quality of interpretation extends right through the whole experience – it is as integral to the wine, the service and the style of the environment as it is to their food.
In addition to the main restaurant, l’ortolan can offer three private dining rooms for you to choose from, each with their own unique flavour, and for larger parties the main restaurant and Glass Room are available for exclusive use– and all with no room hire charge.
With its magical atmosphere and beautiful location l’ortolan is the perfect choice for every dining experience from a relaxed lunch to celebrating special occasions.
