Chef's Table Experience

Enjoy a glass of chilled Bubbles with canapés before we whisk you off to the Chef's Table, right in the heart of the kitchen. Head Chef James Greatorex and his team will take you on a culinary journey featuring signature dishes from L'Ortolan and (if you have chosen the wine flight option - see below) these will be paired with wines carefully selected by our Sommelier.

The Chef's Table is located directly in front of the Pass so you have a fabulous uninterrupted view of the preparation and dressing of dishes as they are finished off to perfection before being sent out to guests. The chefs and front of house team guide you through each course, sharing their knowledge and passion for the food and wine they are serving.

"My Husband and I spent a fantastic evening yesterday at the Chef's Table. We were there for almost four hours and we thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. Many thanks to James and every single member of staff who all engaged with us throughout the evening and made the experience even more special. It was a privilege to see them all in action and although they were very busy they took the time to chat and smile and make us feel included"

"The Chef's Table 7 Course Taster Menu on the 20th of November. From the start this was a very special lunch, from relaxing over champagne and canapes to the coffee and petit fours. Each course was sensational with such a variety of delicious flavours, exquisitely presented. My Husband and Friend had the flight of wines which really complimented each course. Service was impeccable - knowledgeable and friendly staff who explained the food very carefully. The atmosphere in the kitchen was calm and purposeful. Congratulations to James and the whole team"
