Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons Great Milton, Oxfordshire THE extraordinary talents of French chef-patron Raymond Blanc have created one of our most cherished manor-house hotels in Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. Awarded two Michelin stars at its opening 30 years ago, it is probably safe to say that it’s known to all as one of those delectable experiences which make any celebration all the more memorable. This celebrated manor- restaurant-hotel is a niche of French culinary perfection in an English manor-house idyll, sur- rounded by scented gardens and orchards. And if you are al- ready a devotee, or if it’s still on your list of ‘must-do’s’, now is the time to plan a date, as our Members have advantageous Club rates to make the experi- ence even more enjoyable. Dining at Le Manoir is natu- rally delicious. Think Cornish crab or Dover sole, Jimmy Butler's piglet with orchard ap- ple, prune and walnut, and sea- sonal pear almondine with gin- ger sauce . . . the flavours are sublime. Even breakfast is a feast. But of course Le Manoir is a country hotel, not only a restaurant, and the rooms are an equal delight. Take the ro- mantic round Junior Suite in the converted Mediaeval dove- cote, reached by a spiral stair- case. Or Rouge et Le Noir, opening on to the gardens. These gardens are a delight, no matter what the season— lawns, flower borders and or- chards create an idyllic, typical- ly English setting. And beyond the eye-catching displays are vegetable and herb gardens that AgoodtimetostayatRaymondBlanc’sfinediningManoir The only British restaurant to have held two Michelin stars for three decades, Le Manoir is the place for a celebration dinner: to add to the pleasure, stay in the chef’s riotously luxurious rooms at Club rates, and have a tour of his kitchen and gardens 218
