Wonderful Sunday lunch. Well done go all involved
We found this restaurant online and decided to book for our 42nd Wedding Anniversary as we wanted something special and it certainly didn’t disappoint . Everything was exceptional it wasn’t cheap but worth every penny. We would certainly go back . If you are looking for something more fine dining this is the place.
As fabulous as the last time. Superb cooking. The Maitre D brings it all together brilliantly. Glorious sunny day and the garden was the perfect spot….we’ll be back
Great evening with amazing food. Will definitely come back to celebrate special occasions.
Wonderful evening. Food was exceptional and the service equal to it. Only our second visit to Orwells and we were a bit nervous that it wouldn't live up to the first visit but it did and then some.
Only very small grumble would be the conversion of the old bar space to more dining tables. Whilst i completely understand the need for additional space as it's so popular the space feels a bit disjointed from the rest of the restaurant and it doesn't have the same atmosphere. A wall obscures the the main restaurant and to get the attention of staff you need to get up. However that said they did come in very regularly so wasn't a huge problem. Certainly won't deter us from visiting again.
Thanks to the whole team for a great night.
This was our first visit to Orwells.
We had the half menu.
All the dishes were superb, each having a different flavour profile and taking us in different directions.
Smoky ploughman's, peppery seabass, curry crab, meaty deer and the most insanely fabulous crumble dessert.
Would definitely recommend and will be going back for the full 10 courses.
How this restaurant does not have at least two Michelin stars is beyond belief.
Amazing food and lovely staff. Great place for a family celebration
We opted for the full tasting menu, which was excellent as was the service.
Relaxed, enjoyable lunch, with superb service and exquisite dishes. Will definitely return!
The tasting menu was absolutely outstanding, I think the drink list possibly needs the same fastidious attention to detail to match the food, otherwise a brilliant experience.
Absolutely astonishing from beginning till the end!
Can not wait to get back
First time visitors. Had the tasting menu. 12 exquisitely put together dishes. Service was exceptional, non rushed. It’s a quiet restaurant but tbh we quite like that as well. Will definitely be returning.
The tasting menu is a joy. You can see the work that must go into preparing and presenting each course. 1 or 2 minor quibbles with courses that didn't quite meet the exceptional quality overall.
From the moment you reach the restaurant to the time you leave, you are very well taken care of by the front of house staff. The right mix of attending to your needs (and low-key up-selling) and leaving you to enjoy your meal. The atmosphere is informal but also very professional.
Thoroughly recommend going for the full tasting menu for the lunch time service. Allows you to enjoy every course and then relax for the rest of the day.
Great combination of dishes in the tasting menu.
We fully recommend the Taster Menu. A real amazing food experience. Everything at Orwells is spot on - food, atmosphere, service, ambience et al. Probably the best meal we have ever had.
As ever Orwell’s delivers on all aspects! Delicious and innovative food combined with excellent service and ambiance. Been coming for years and every meal is perfect. On this occasion we had the tasting menu and wine flight - highly recommended.
It took us 4.5hrs to complete the tasting menu and accompanying wines- absolutely stunning
Friendly service ,very good food and some interesting wines to choose from their list.
really great food, served by friendly staff in a lovely countryside setting
Lovely to be dining at Orwell’s again. Relaxing evening with excellent food
Liked the new look
A fabulous fine dining experience in a lovely setting. The service is friendly, relaxed and paced to perfection allowing for full enjoyment of the superb food and wines. Orwells is highly recommended!
Fabulous restaurant. Staff friendly and they enjoy what they do! They smile which is unusual in restaurants today! The food is yes, expensive, but it is absolutely outstanding and in such a relaxing, friendly atmosphere, worth it. Will definitely be revisiting……probably a few times!
If you don’t mind spending a few quid, you won’t regret it.
Delicious food, particularly my huge scallop starter and the plough man’s canapé. Chefs Ryan & Liam couldnt make it anymore welcoming. Desserts were intricate, finely balanced and original. We had the honey dessert and rhubarb and ginger one … off the scale.
Bloody hell it's nice!
Absolutely worth the price.
Excellent fayre, perfect service.
We always love visiting Orwell's and we have never had a bad experience. Lunch on Sunday was no exception! We had the 6 course tasting menu which was delicious!
As always the service was outstanding.
Already looking forward to our next meal there.
A fabulous sensory journey of delightful presentation equalled with taste. Beautifully put together, So good we immediately booked a return visit.
The restaurant was full with a lovely friendly, relaxed and cozy atmosphere without it being noisy. The staff was very professional and attentive. They knew exactly when to bring your next dish, when to refill a glass and how much to talk to you without interrupting at any time. The food and wine were out of this world! Every dish looked beautiful with all ingredients complimenting each other. An incredible experience where time flew by. We still can not decide which dish was our favourite!
Excellent tasting menu, everything was fresh and delicious. Cute garden, unfortunately due to the weather we were not able to sit outside
Couple of downsides: windows in the main area cannot be opened (lack of ventilation is not very helpful during covid times), no baby changing facilities, no WiFi for customers but you are now expected to access the menu via QR code.
One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. We started our meal with a glass of champagne in the beautiful garden overlooking fields. We went for the tasting menu, all the courses were delicious and it was beautifully paced, we didn't feel rushed at all and had lots of time to savour the food. The service was very friendly.
Absolutely superb. The best lunch I've had for a very long time. Just the place for a special occasion.
Just an excellent dining experience- thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening. Arnau is a perfect host!! Thank you for helping us create a wonderful memory
Wonderful dining experience, completely delicious food and excellent service
fabulous top notch delicious food incredible flavour beautifully presented and friendly efficient service
relaxed atmosphere but all of the highest standard
thanks for great eve xx
If you like your food, this is the place to go, yes not cheap but the taster menu is something else
Going to Orwell's is always a real treat. The food is of the highest standard & the service second to none. We're already planning when our next visit will be!
Another great meal at one of the best restaurants in Berkshire
Just a lovely place to go for a really top quality meal. Fantastic food, friendly attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere. A hidden gem. It's far from cheap, but worth it for the quality of the whole experience. Will absolutely be back for a special occasion in the future.
Absolutely lovely food, although pricey. The restaurant itself is a beautiful old timbered building which is a joy to eat in.
The wine list is expensive (which they all are at very good restaurants) but they don’t list any ‘house wines which would have been welcome.
The service is a tad on the ‘eternally hovering’ side, always topping up drinks when a little space would have been welcome, but all the staff were very friendly and efficient.
Overall a good place to eat great food on special occasions.
Excellent birthday treat with family
