Here is the foodporn from a recent meal at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons near Oxford. As you’d expect from a 2 Michelin star, Relais & Châteaux it really is the height of luxury which comes with a price tag to match. Lunch for two including a ‘reasonable’ bottle of wine, a round of pre-meal drinks and an espresso with petit fours is knocking on the door of £400.
