Food and Wine


Exceptional cuisine, exquisite wines and first class service all combine to make the dining experience at L’Ortolan truly memorable.

Award winning Executive Chef, Alan Murchison, has held a Michelin star here since 2003. The restaurant also has four AA rosettes and an AA Notable Wine List. Alan and his highly talented team prepare artistic food with an awe inspiring array of tastes and textures. The menus are modern French but with influences from other cuisines, contemporary and exciting, and produced using only the finest ingredients available.  

To complement the food our Sommelier offers recommendations from our extensive wine list, including flights of wines to accompany each of the menus. More on wine...
