This venue serves British, Pub Food and Roast Dinner food.

A word from the chef:
Head chef, Tom Haste, has put together a primarily traditional British but ambitious and well-executed seasonal menu. Ingredients have been chosen with care, but the a la carte and lunch menu are happily affordable. The wine list is impressive with its quality and unusual wines.

We had a great night in the private room of The Lady Ottoline and thoroughly recommend it for team dinners or a social get-together. The service was great and Francesca took particularly good care of us. Food, drinks set up and atmosphere were all great. We will definitely consider the venue for future events.

This was for a large private group booking. Had great communication prior to the event and quick response time, they were very helpful. The party had to have the set menu due to the size of the group. Unfortunately they were not overly impressed with the starters, and found the portions to be quite small. However the restaurant and food as a whole is normally very good, so I would come back again. Visited The Lady Ottoline on 2017-06-06

Would highly recommend this pub for group night. Booked The Morell Room for a private dinner for friends and had a brilliant evening. Our waitresses were fun and super friendly, the room was the perfect size for 14 of us and the food was great (huge portions!). Lower min. spend than other pubs which was a big plus point too. Would return happily! Visited The Lady Ottoline on 2017-06-02

Very nice food (particularly the chicken and leek pie at lunchtime) and a great place to have drinks after work. The downstairs can get a little cramped and there aren't that many places to stand and congregate.

Delicious food. Whoever the chef is, he's a masters what he does. Atmosphere was pretty nice, but quite noisy (downstairs, don't know about upstairs).
