An Oxfordshire restaurant headed by a celebrity chef has been named as one of the UK’s best.

Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons is nestled in the countryside by the village of Great Milton and recently retained its two Michelin stars which the restaurant has held since 1984.

Started by Raymond Blanc in the very same year, the kitchen has been a starting point for several notable chefs including Marco Pierre White and Paul Liebrandt.

The restaurant and hotel have garnered an immense reputation amongst chefs, critics and the public alike.

This stellar reputation has been confirmed once again in the form of the National Restaurant Awards which covers a list of the 100 best venues in the country.

Le Manoir was named 86th in the UK and a post celebrating this achievement was shared on its Instagram account featuring a video and photographs of the chefs with Mr Blanc.

“From garden-fresh ingredients that tell a tale of sustainability, to innovative dishes that weave flavours from across the globe- every aspect of Le Manoir is curiously crafted to delight your senses.

“Along with our Chef Patron, Raymond Blanc, a heartfelt thank you to our dedicated team and community that surrounds us.”
