Le Manior Aux Quat’Saisons, Oxford | 2 Michelin stars

Where to eat

One of the world’s finest restaurants owned by the inimitable Raymond Blanc is a short drive away and a sought after reservation is well worth planning a visit to the region around. Balancing classic French techniques with typically English ingredients, Mr Blanc is renowned for his attention to detail, unwavering quality and playful approach to food. Many of the country’s finest chefs have done stints here and left to set up acclaimed restaurants - but nothing beats a splash-out supper here.
