This was my first time to dine at a true Michelin star restaurant and hotel, and it was fabulous.
Firstly the service was exceptional from checking in to sadly leaving the following day.
Yes it is very expensive but for me as a once off, it was just a wonderful experience.
The hotel is so comfortable and welcoming.
We dined in the conservatory and the 7-course tasting menu was amazing.
Breakfast was another experience with hot dishes and a beautifully presented and large buffet.
The gardens are worth a visit, especially the Japanese water garden.
An exceptional experience.

We stayed for a special occasion overnight and with one of the tasting menus . From the moment you arrive in the car park until check out, the service and attention to detail is world class. Our room was divine with everything you could ever ask for. We had pre dinner drinks and briefly met Raymond. Our fish and lamb mains were just about the best 2 things we have ever eaten - and we have dined in many 2 and 3 star restaurants world wide. We were offered a cheese board in place of one of our desserts which was unusually enormous for such an expensive establishment. But it too was out of this world. Our only niggles were the first 3 courses. There was no seasoning whatsoever. My wife would add salt often to dishes but I rarely if ever do. But I had to on this occasion . They were pretty bland until the seasoning enlivened them. It was a disappointing start to the evening, as if a totally different chef was involved. As others have stated , the prices of the wine were painful but what can you do. I would still highly recommend the experience but if we were to return I might mention the seasoning issues from the start.

Booked for a gourmet seven course dinner with wine to match and ended up with a memorable meal to be remembered. They are chefs and they are Great Chefs and Le Manoir is owned by the later.

From the meet and greet in the car park with umbrellas the staff could not have done more.
Very attentive and professional without being intrusive.
Food was superb in the evening as was breakfast.
Couldn't fault it .If you are on a budget - you might find this pricey. .but you get what you pay for.
highly recommended and will return.

We had a tiny wedding and took our guests here for lunch. I'd wanted to go for years and was not disappointed. It was meant to be a 'once in a lifetime' experience but we loved it so much we've booked for our anniversary! We had a range of dietary requirements including my vegan husband who had an excellent meal - we all coveted his chocolate pudding - "she izz not for sharing" said the waiter, as we leaned in with forks, which made my husband's day.
