The Kitchen Table

The Kitchen Table
The Idea

Under the stewardship of Head Chef Tom Clarke, L'Ortolan are proud to launch their brand new dining concept The Kitchen Table. The kitchen table is a bespoke dining experience, catering for 4 diners around the heart of the stove with unique access to your own personal chef. Here Chef prepares, cooks and serves an ever evolving menu, featuring classic L'Ortolan dishes, whilst also being among the first to taste our brand new dishes.

For 2018 we are running these on the first Friday of every month from February. However, if there is a particular date that you would like to dine on the Kitchen Table with a group of friends or family, then please do let us know and we can check dates with our Chef. We would be happy to try and accommodate you for other days.

The Food
An 8 course modern British tasting menu with a welcome cocktail. The focus is on delivering truly delicious innovative food, but most importantly, made within touching distance of your seat.
The Drink
A welcome edible cocktail will be served on your arrival before the meal, then guests have two options. The sommelier's wine pairing is perfectly matched to each of the surprise courses and is the advised choice, available at an additional £65. Alternatively, we would be happy to recommend a bottle to accompany the menu from our wine list. An ice bucket will be available to chill drinks. Water will be served, as well as coffee or tea at the end of the meal.
The Location
The Kitchen Table is here at L'Ortolan, and has been created within our existing demonstration studio.
The Tickets
Dates will be announced as far in advance as possible (so you can get them in your diary). The tickets will be released around 3 months before the event itself - so everyone has an equal chance. Tickets are sold individually, although you may purchase multiples. Join the mailing list and follow L'Ortolan on social media for up to date information. All reservation requests for the Kitchen Table are taken either through email or telephone only. For reservations and all other enquiries, please email
The Price
Tickets are available at £115 each, and are booked on an individual basis. The price of your ticket includes everything except the drinks you choose on the evening. All your food, welcome cocktail, water and tea or coffee are all included in the price.
The Cancelation Policy
To keep the ticket prices as low as possible, and with these events being so small, it really is vital that all seats are filled to make it affordable to run. Therefore, unfortunately tickets are non-refundable. However, if you unable to attend the event and notify us with at least 10 days notice, we will do our best to accommodate your tickets at a future The Kitchen Table event.
Allergies / Dietary requirements
All the food served is prepared freshly in front of you within our small demonstration kitchen. Dietary requirements can be catered for but these must be discussed at the time of buying the ticket and well in advance of the event. Due to the nature of the event, changes to the menu cannot be made on the evening.
