This rural retreat exudes a different air from the moment you arrive. Absolutely everything has been thought about and prepared for. Your experience starts at the point you leave your vehicle. The atmosphere is relaxed, you are encouraged to wander the grounds and look at all the lovely produce you will be served. Rooms are luxurious. Service is exceptional from everyone. But that isn’t describing the feeling of Le Manoir it’s like the whole world around you has taken the deepest of breaths and let out the biggest sigh and relaxed to a whole new level

We've eaten at about a dozen Michelin star restaurants now. We had the six course lunch time taster menu earlier today. The food was perfectly nice (the last desert on the course was superb one of the best desserts I've ever eaton) but comparing the price and quality of the rest of the courses to other two star restaurants we have been to a couple of times (sat bains, simpsons, mid summer house) we just didn't feel the food was at the same level and with a lunch price tag of 145 (more expensive for lunch than all the other two star restaurants we've been to) we were just left underwhelmed.

You always expect to pay for experiences at restaurants of this ilk (the ground and setting is so beautiful) but for the outlay you do expect something outstanding. It's very classical, perhaps we were hoping for some more surprises. The cocktails as a side note were expertly made.

My wife took me for a two day break to celebrate a significant birthday, included in this was a day at the cookery school. What surprised me was how relaxed and welcoming it felt, not stuffy at all. It is a beautiful hotel and the rooms are lovely and offer everything you could want. On our first day we went for a walk round the lovely vegetable gardens and had both tea and a drink in the garden, very relaxing. The first evening we had the 7 course dinner that turned into 8 courses with cheese, don’t be frightened they are small plates but believe me you are full at the end. The cookery school was informative and great fun the staff are great and you don’t have to be an experienced cook to go. Our second Evening was more relaxed with a 3 course meal that turned into 4 as we struggled to decide on a starter so they gave us both (thank you); the food is just fantastic. The staff are wonderful they know your name even when just walking about and are always there when you need them; they definitely helped to make our visit special. Overall a first class location that made my Birthday special.

See my review on the hotel. If I lived locally I would certainly be a regular! Certainly not cheap but then high quality never is!

We had quite an experience getting from Buckingham to Great Milton on a rainy night, but the restaurant proved worth the trouble. Very elegant. Nice to sit in a lounge for a drink first and then go in to dinner. Food was superb, as were the wines. The waiters were courteous, professional, and obliging. The total cost for two people was about $800, on top of which, our cab rides added up to $120. But it was worth it, as a one-time experience.
