Le Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons, Great Milton, Oxfordshire

The walk in from the car park. 

Slate of canapés served with drinks in the lounge - each one intricate and interesting

Salmon - perfectly cooked. We agreed this  was one of the best pieces of fish we had ever been served.

Lightly fried egg on watercress purée with spinach, jabugo ham and toasted hazelnuts. Opinion was divided on this one. Mary didn't really like it, but I thought it was inventive cookery that worked very well. 

Lamb with Fennel, artichokes and haricot beans. I loved this, but Mary doesn't really like lamb so I ate most of her meat. She liked the rest of it though.

Blackcurrant Sorbet served on a soft meringue. An absolute delight

Petit-fours served with tea and coffee. There is an extensive tea and coffee menu. We chose exactly what we wanted, it was high quality, and refills were offered at no extra cost.

We have been wanting to eat here for many years. I actually booked in 2011, but had to cancel because of Mary's health. 

Was it worth the wait? Yes -- the village is beautiful, Le Manoir is beautiful. The food and service were perfect.

Was it worth the money?  We had the five course lunch menu, one non-alcoholic cocktail, one bottle of beer, tea and coffee. The bill was £187. It was worth every penny.
