Square Meal Review of Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons ?

First impressions count and Raymond Blanc’s fine-tuned take on country-house luxe is suitably seductive from the moment the gorgeous gardens and manor house hove into view – it’s a silkily orchestrated vision of pure escapism buoyed by near-faultless cooking founded on classic French technique. Much depends on the ravishing organic gardens, so it’s no surprise that the food is all about seasonality and what Blanc calls ‘sustainable harmony’. A terrine of baby beetroot, burrata and horseradish sorbet is as simple as it gets; elsewhere there’s luxury in the shape of plancha-seared Scottish lobster with red pepper and cardamom or superb Cornish brill with oyster, scallop, cucumber and wasabi. Roasted fillet of Aberdeen Angus beef comes with pearl barley, girolles and red wine jus, while inventive desserts bring proceedings to a thrilling finish. Of course, you will pay handsomely for the velvety escape of a lifetime, but Le Manoir remains the “perfect luxury restaurant” and the ultimate dream ticket for out-of-town indulgence.

  1. One of Britain’s most loved destination restaurants – le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons – is the perfect place for a gastronomic escape. Chef Raymond Blanc is a hands-on kind of boss. It’s not his style to be hidden away, simply overseeing his brigade. He’s out welcoming guests, gauging times, subtly managing the whole operation. And well managed it is too with the front-of-house service working in elegant concert with the kitchen. Once you’ve had a chance to take in the surroundings with you apéritif and amuses bouches, you’ll be escorted to your table. Menu wise, you’ll notice that there doesn’t seem to be any outlandish tricks ahead of you. That’s because Blanc’s cooking is routed in classic, French traditional cuisine. Though what you can expect is simply the most outstanding produce, treated with modern techniques to create fresh dishes. In fact, Blanc is so proud of his suppliers that he names them one by one on the back on his menu...
