. Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons
French restaurant in Great Milton
Church Road - OX44
One of the most beautiful places in the UK; Raymond Blanc has created a jewel-like experience (especially for couples who stay over in one of its rooms), at this immaculately kept Elizabethan manor, in a small village south of Oxford an iconic destination (and the surveys most mentioned outside London). From the moment you step out of the car, the staffs welcome instantly makes you feel at ease, and a visit to the gardens including the large kitchen garden that partly supplies the dining room is an essential part of the trip; even in the icy cold of February they are a pleasure to wander around, and make one truly believe that fairy tales are indeed true! For some reporters the atmosphere in the dining conservatory itself is exceeded by other elements of the experience, but quibbles in this respect are few. Meanwhile, if theres a gripe about the beautiful and typically French haute cuisine, its that some find it slightly lacking innovation but for the vast majority of guests its finesse and awe-inspiring attention to detail contribute to an overall occasion thats a benchmark for all things good in hospitality. Naturally its best not to dwell on the prices, but the overwhelming verdict is that its worth it!
. Oli's Thai
Thai restaurant in Oxford
38 Magdalen Rd - OX4
Brilliant, just brilliant, wow, wow, wow!; this tiny Thai café may have a small menu that never changes dramatically, and you do have to book two to three months in advance, but the sublime and astonishing flavours are worth all the waiting so if at first you dont succeed in getting a table, try, try again!
. The Red Lion
British, Modern restaurant in Britwell Salome
2015 Review: It may be hidden away down dark, twisty, narrow roads, but the inn once known as the Goose is again ranked in all reports as well worth seeking out for its wonderful top-notch pub food, served with real passion.
. The Feathered Nest Inn
British, Modern restaurant in Nether Westcote
Off the beaten track in an outstandingly beautiful location, this Cotswolds gastropub is a stunning all-rounder (and you can sit outside when its fine). Enjoy fabulously delicious food of a kind thats occasionally adventurous but never faddish.
. The Bull at Burford
British, Modern restaurant in Burford
105 High St - OX18
2014 Review: Reporters continue to be impressed with the whole experience of eating at this historic town-centre inn in particular the fantastic service instigated by the wonderfully gregarious patron Jean-Marie Lauzier.
. The Crooked Billet
British, Modern restaurant in Stoke Row
Newlands Ln - RG9
Tucked away in the Chiltern Hills between Reading and Henley, Paul Clerehughs wonderful, out-of-the-way pub/restaurant is still a favourite after many years. The food is gorgeous, staff are very friendly and cheerful and the oak-beamed interior is just lovely (theres also the option of eating in the secret garden area at the back). Top Tip great music nights.
