We look forward to seeing you very soon
We had the tasting menu which was sublime. A number of lovely surprises and a fantastic wine flight. As always the entire team at the Restaurant look after their customers to great effect. The cooking was, as usual, top class and we had yet another lovely evening.
Lovely food - high quality and very attentive service but it does feel very overpriced
Fresh food, prepared with passion, served with panache, and eaten with delight. A perfect birthday treat for my wife.
Superb meal and extremely attentive service - very nice way to celebrate a major event such as a birthday!
The restaurant was recommended by a friend but was warned it is very expensive. Not too bothered if the food is good. Yes the foods was very nicely presented. Unfortunately l eat very little salt these days so l found my main course and the side vegetables was a bit too salty for me but my daughters enjoyed it. £4 for a normal glass of lemonade to me is very expensive! I certainly will revisit on very special occasions.
This place really is a hidden gem. Off the beaten track and full of charm, taste and creativity - it’s hard not to love it !!!
The whole experience was amazing from start to finish, a very warm welcome and the food was outstanding. A fantastic evening, thank you very much.
The food was seasoned to perfection, the staff were superb. Overall an exceptional experience.
Interesting and unusual menu. Extras such as amuse bouche and wonderful petit fours. Attentive and very helpful service. An excellent Sunday lunch. We'll definitely go back.
Great food in great environment. Orwells never fails to impress.
2nd time round and everything still as amazing as the first. Gorgeous delicious food, great wine and fantastic service. We will local to Orwell’s and would happily visit regularly.
Absolutely beautifully cooked fresh food- great hospitality and friendly staff
Excellent meal with beautiful flavours
Myself and my husband have been going to Orwells for many years. It used to be one of my favourite restaurants. But last few times it’s been very hit and miss. Arnaud who is in charge of front of house is wonderful and asset to this restaurant. Food has gone down hill a little for me
We went for the Valentine’s Night Tasting Menu. The food was outstanding with every single course being a delight.
The chef and his team created masterpieces of taste that simply set our taste buds alight. We’ve never tasted such good food before. In short it was the best food we have ever eaten.
How this restaurant does not have a Michelin star is beyond us. It’s in a completely different league from certain restaurants in Bray who have such an accrediation.
The staff are very welcoming and attentive.
We would whole heartedly recommend this establishment.
Amazing evening at Orwells with the vegan tasting menu that was really well put together and delicious with loads of interesting plates.
Wonderful meal with friendly welcoming service. Really enjoyed the Lunch
We had a lovely night at Orwell’s, the food and drink was amazing and the service was second to none.
The food is very good indeed. All of our dishes were absolutely first class. The bread was amazing. Wines were spot on.
There is a small however. It is very pricey. So definitely a special occasion visit. We wanted to have a nice meal with friends. We had a fabulous meal with friends. The food was stunning.
Exceptionally imaginative food, supreme presentation and an intimate ambiance.
A charming, personal, restaurant near Henley. My date was immediately impressed by the authentic look and feel of the restaurant. We went for the full tasting menu, and it was fantastic! It did take 4 hrs 😀 The customer service was personal and perfect - making us both feel looked after.
At the end, one of the head chefs talked to us - and remembered it was my date's first time having a tasting menu. Lovely touch!
I want to take all my friends there!
Friendly welcome, delicious food. Very well presented and lovely mixture of flavours. Pre ordered as party of 6 and they took care of who’d ordered what. Took a little longer than expected before the first course arrived, but did enjoy an amuse bouche in that time. As chatting with friends the pace worked well for us. Highly recommended. Been very good on each visit and will return.
Having been several times before, we knew the experience would be excellent. However, the food and service on this visit was outstanding - better than a number of meals we have had over the years at Michelin Star restaurants in London, the UK and overseas. Probably the best dinner we have ever had. Welcoming, relaxing and just a joy. We are fortunate to have a restaurant such as this close to where we live in South Oxfordshire. Gavin & Nathalie McClure
I and three friends throughly enjoyed our first, but hopefully not last, visit to Orwells. We chose from the set lunch menu which had relatively few dishes from which to select but this did not spoil our enjoyment of the food in any way. It was a multi sensory delight for us all. Our plates resembled an artist’s canvas.
We had A fabulous wedding anniversary. The food was wonderful, the service exceptional and the relaxed atmosphere just perfect. What a lovely way to while away a few hours. Many thanks
Perfect environment and fantastic food . We go every year for our anniversary.
We had Sunday lunch at Orwells 15th September and there is a warm welcome from the Maitre d' as soon as you walk in. The lighting and decor makes it a really nice environment too.
We only had main courses as the popcorn, bread, and smoked ploughmans pot that is included was enough!
The main course was a little slow arriving but this may be because we didn't have starters and everything is cooked fresh. The food itself was superb. I had the pork loin Sunday roast and my wife had the goose accompanied by a very nice Californian Cabernet.
All in all a very good experience I would highly recommend.
Ryan and Liam catered for our wedding 11 years ago so what better way to celebrate than to eat their phenomenal food once more. The food is incredible. Yes they are not an inexpensive eatery however their food is unbelievable and the service impeccable. Every time we visit we come away feeling wowed, full and extremely satisfied. This time we went for the full tasting menu and my husband had the wine flight (I don't really drink). The pairing between the wine and the food was spot on and the information was really interesting and not at all intrusive. I couldn't give you a favourite dish because they were all unique and very tasty. The presentation is also gorgeous. I can't recommend this restaurant enough. I LOVE it here
Great welcome, great service, great food. Will be back soon
Fantastic meal at Orwell's. We had three course lunch menu but the a la carte menu also looked amazing. Cod starter was delicately flavoured, wood pigeon had a wonderful smokey flavour. The mains were again truely special, monkfish, lamb and venison. Expertly cooked and packed full of flavour. Arnaud runs an amazing charming, fun, friendly and knowledgeable front of house. Will be visiting again, one of the best restaurants you will ever visit!
Impromptu booking... from beginning to end .. fantastic... service to food to atmosphere.... quant and cute... will
Go again for sure
Great birthday celebration helped by friendly efficient service and fabulous food and drinks.
The Tasting Menu was absolutely fantastic, beautiful attention to detail and every course was delicious. Excellent customer service and made our anniversary celebration extra special.
First visit and it won't be our last. Exceptional food, well presented, great service, highly recommended.
As good as any one star Michelin I've frequented.
My table was poorly lit, but that's my beef with most restaurants.
A place for special occasions.
Unusual choice of background music.
Definitely better than McDonalds.
Lovely ambience and excellent service for Sunday lunch. The menu had interesting choices, with something for all the party, from wood pigeon to fish. The amuse bouche was tasty and the popcorn a nice touch! The chef was able to accommodate our dietary requirements, which was much appreciated.
Nice restaurant with friendly service.
Food choices were a little limited so we both had sea bass that was excellently cooked and presented,
Faultless from start to finish. Great welcome, food and service were excellent even though it was the first service for one of the watrons you would never have known. Finished off with a round of expresso martinis. Good value and thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. We were the last to leave!
Really good food and good staff. We had the full taster menu which was well prepared and presented. A couple of the dishes were a little on the cold side but overall really good.
Great food and great service. Sunday roast was the best I have ever eaten
