Since being taken over by Oxford-based Cowley Manor, L'Hôtel has rechristened its restaurant (formerly Le Belier) and put the talented Philippe Bélisse in charge of the kitchen. You can choose from a short seasonal menu with dishes such as pan-fried tuna, John Dory or suckling pig. But for the same price you can also enjoy the marvellous four-course menu dégustation or, even better, the menu surprise. Highlights of the autumn menu were the wild Breton crab stuffed with fennel, avocado and huile d'Argan, and a main course of pigeon on a bed of beetroot.
