Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ok, I am not going to lie this is not cheap, BUT you get everything you could possibly hope for in a weekend away. I was still full from the night before when the huge breakfast arrived the next morning. Walking in the gardens was...such a pleasure.More

An indulgent lunch in beautiful surroundings with attentive staff as a special treat for my husbands birthday. Lunch is a set 7 course tasting menu, but there is an option to swap dishes if there is something that does not suit. We enjoyed all the...savoury courses, the sweet courses slightly less so, but that is just personal taste. We did not go for the wine pairing menu on this occasion and with just pre-lunch drinks and bottled water the meal was still £500 for 2 of us. The gardens are beautiful and all in all we had a fantastic day here.More

We arrived early for a tour of the gardens hosted by Jose. Jose gave us a glimpse of how proud all the staff are to be working at Le Manoir and the care they all take to make the stay an exceptional one. 3 staff...for every guest, nothing is too much trouble and a genuine desire to create that perfect experience. We booked an overnight stay to celebrate a birthday and anniversary. When checking in Oliver told us we had been double upgraded to the blanc de blanc suite which was quite a shock. The suite is amazing with two toilets, lounge/dining room, huge bathroom with a double walk in shower and a large bedroom. Obviously everything is white and incredibly designed from the "luggage trunk" coffee table to the tv surround sound, air conditioning and tv above the bath. There is an outside garden/patio area with a small pond. Freddie gave us a tour of the kitchen and wine cellar where we met the staff. It's great to see how much preparation there is to everything from the 10 gardeners to the kitchen to the restaurant. We have visited before and nothing rivals Le Manoir. We chose the prestige flight to accompany the set menu. The food was superb, amazed at how much flavour there can be with simple home grown produce. The Canadian iced wine was a revelation and the lady sommelier was brilliant, a real font of knowledge. Overall there is nothing to criticise about Le Manoir. It is the perfect place to be. Can't wait to visit again. And thankyou to all the staff for making our stay so special.More

The place is delicious, if you go to the restaurant ask for Mrs. Luz, she is the best waitress and knows all the dishes, she is a sweetheart and she is very good, she delivers everything very quickly

Lunch to celebrate a special wedding anniversary we arrived early but the gardens are fantastic to explore and setting as stunning as ever. Lunch was delicious we did not order the wine flight but ordered wine to suit the occasion and stayed as long as...we wished a total of 5 hours. For us it’s a special occasion and the service, food attention to detail as you would expect.More

My wife and I visited for our anniversary and we had the most wonderful time. We have been very fortunate to have stayed in many quality hotels and dine in some fantastic restaurants, but after 38 years together and all of the places we’ve experienced...around the world, Le Manoir has by far been the most pleasurable experience. As you would expect, the food and the accommodation are without fault but we were so very impressed with the staff… they are a league above anything we have experienced. A big thank you to all the team and we hope to enjoy their hospitality again… soon!More

Had a superb lunch here to celebrate a milestone birthday. Everything was of high quality. The service, the tasting menu, the wine and the building itself. I can recommend it . Obviously you pay top price for top quality.

A simply stunning venue and experience for a special occasion. The food, the service could not be faulted. The seven course tasting menu was an absolute delight. It beats other "Michelin" establishments hands down.

Raymond Blanc has seen it all. Divorce. Refinancing with Relais Châteaux. Getting an honour and leading his business through Covid-19. Through it all Le Manoir has gone from strength to strength.

Lunch on the 11th August, a stunning day and lovely pre lunch drinks on the lawn. Lunch was simply lovely, every one of the 6 courses (we skipped cheese) was just outstanding and beautifully presented. The staff were all excellent from the reception we received,...the waiter, the sommelier ……. Generally young, articulate, motivated and seemingly happy to be there. An absolute pleasure to be served by them. Considering the quality of service, the beautiful food and the setting I felt it was good value and worth every penny. A truly memorable experience and we hope to go back. Thank you so much for a wonderful lunch and experience.More

Great location and excellent staff. Very disappointed with the ‘vegetarian’ menu. This was a tasting menu at £220 each and the majority of the 9 courses were vegan and somewhat bland. Very little diary content. Sadly, not a patch on The Waterside or Gordon Ramsey...which will enjoy our future custom.More

The food was only alright for the above £1000 for a 6-course meal. I can tell you that I can make better food than this. Some dishes were absolutely confused, and then the main dish that apparently designed by Raymond Blanc was the worst thing...I had ever seen. The dish was left almost untouched. Unfair to mention that the dessert chef saved the day! What I can conclude about my visit is the food was harmless, it was not memorable at all, I will never go back again, I will not recommend it either! They should take the Michelin star away from them,!More

Lunch on the 23rd June, a special occasion for my wife and I. Arrived slightly early only to be welcomed with a wonderful welcome and served a pot of teased petit fours in the lounge. Before lunch a walk around the extensive and beautiful gardens...which provide so much of the fresh produce for the kitchen. Six course lunch was an experience which could not be faulted in any way. Complex but simple dishes using the freshest of produce. Finally, the most important ingredient, in our opinion, the Staff. Attentive but not overbearing and all very happy to chat with us. Le Manoir, incorporated in a 3 day visit to Oxford on this occasion, is an experience we will repeat to take in another Saison of culinary delights.More
