Launched by adopted national treasure Raymond Blanc in 1984, Le Manoir is a spellbinding vision of pure escapism guaranteed to transport world-weary souls back to la belle vie. Much depends
on the seductive appeal of the hotel’s ravishing organic gardens, so it’s no surprise that the food is all about seasonality and what Blanc calls ‘sustainable harmony’. Almost everything is infused
with the essence of intelligent French cuisine – from an exquisitely pretty plate of smoked salmon ‘mi-cuit’ with horseradish and cucumber to roast loin of venison with Grand Veneur sauce or squab

recipient of the BMW Square Meal Award for the Best UK Restaurant 2013.

Menu wise, you’ll notice that there doesn’t seem to be any...

The building, the hedges, the lawn, the flower beds; all perfectly...
