Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons

Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons Review

Standards are high at this 15th-century stone manor house, the ultimate place for a gourmet getaway. The hotel features both a cooking school and one of the country's finest kitchens, and master Chef Raymond Blanc's epicurean touch shows at every turn. You can dine à la carte, but if money is no object you might like to try one of the fixed-price menus ranging from £134 to £154; the five-course set-price lunch at £79 is easier on the wallet. Decide from among such innovative French creations as terrine of baby beetroot with horseradish sorbet or roasted duck breast with caramelized chicory, clementines, and jasmin tea sauce. (There is a separate vegetarian menu, too.) You need to book up to three months ahead in summer. A stroll through the hotel's herb and Japanese tea gardens is de rigueur. The pretty town of Great Milton is 7 miles southeast of Oxford.
