Reservations at L'Ortolan Reading, Berkshire

We can accommodate tables of up to 7 in the main restaurant. For larger parties, from 8 to 22, we are delighted to offer a private dining room with no hire charge, or exclusive hire of the restaurant for up to 58.

We require credit card details to secure tables of 5 or more guests and all reservations on Friday and all day Saturday and throughout December. If you need to change or cancel your reservation please allow 48 hours notice prior to your reservation time to avoid a cancellation charge. Cancellations within this time will be subject to a £20 lunch/£40 dinner charge per person and apply to Friday & Saturday bookings and throughout December.
When there is an exclusive menu such as Valentine's Day, we will ask for up to a 50% deposit and work on the same 48 hour cancellation policy.

Private dining bookings are secured with a prepaid deposit which is redeemable against the final bill. If you need to cancel for any reason we kindly request 10 days notice in order to refund your deposit in full.

Well behaved children over 3 years of age are welcome at L'Ortolan at the Restaurant Manager's discretion. Please be aware that this is a fine dining restaurant and we ask you respect our other guests, many of whom are celebrating a special occasion. Where possible we will seat you in a more private area of the restaurant so you may relax and enjoy your dining experience with us.

The age restriction does not apply on Mother's Day, Father's Day or if you are dining in one of our private dining rooms

We welcome people with disabilities and will do our utmost to accommodate your needs. Please note however that due to the historic construction and listed building status, we are bound by various constraints within the property. We are able to provide standard wheelchair access only to the restaurant dining room but not unfortunately to the bathroom facilities.
