The Hotel

Savour world-class indulgence in the Oxfordshire countryside

Created by celebrated chef Raymond Blanc OBE, Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons is one of the country's most cherished manor house hotels. We received two Michelin stars in 1984, the first year of our opening, and, remarkably, have held them ever since.

Surrounded by lawns, flower borders and orchards, our setting is postcard-perfect. But beyond the eye-catching displays are vegetable and herb gardens that provide the kitchen—and the acclaimed Raymond Blanc Cookery School—with ultra-fresh, organic produce. They guarantee our restaurant remains at the cutting edge of culinary excellence.

Sustainability at Le Manoir

From the moment you arrive at our countryside manor, you'll feel the spirit of our gardens and our core mindset of sustainability come to life. This approach is born out of our Chef Patron Raymond Blanc OBE’s personal ethos, where seasonality, foraging and no waste are part and parcel of the holistic approach to dining and beyond.

Nurturing a potager kitchen garden, the menu is inspired only by what is fresh and what is locally grown. From this, we have earned a Green Michelin Star that joins our existing two Michelin stars for culinary excellence.

During your time at Le Manoir, discover some of the initiatives we have adopted to help drive us towards delivering a perfectly integrated eco-system.
