Staff at two Oxfordshire restaurants will find out this evening if they will retain their Michelin stars for 2024.

The Michelin Guide will reveal the restaurant selection for 2024 during an hour-long ceremony from 6pm at Manchester's Midland Hotel today (Monday, February 5).

Both one-starred the Nut Tree Inn in Murcott and two-starred Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons in Great Milton are the two places in the county boasting a Michelin star.

But the reality for some people is eating out at such high end establishments can prove to be too costly.

The Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons offers a six-course set lunch menu costing £220 per person and a seven-course menu for dinner setting you back £245.

There is a range of wine pairings you can add to these set menus costing anywhere from £99 to a whopping £1,050.

Owned by celebrity chef Raymond Blanc, Le Manoir retained its two-star Michelin status in 2023 for the 39th year in a row.

Mr Blanc leads the team with protégé Luke Selby heading up the kitchen.

It is famous for its high-quality French cuisine but with a modern touch.

Battered cod and chips will set you back £27, while a rump steak and chips costs £30.

There is also a choice of side dishes including dressed leaves with capers, shallots and honey mustard vinaigrette, tenderstem broccoli with chili dressing and chips costing £8.

The Nut Tree in Main Street in Murcott retained its one-star Michelin status in 2023.

The team at the Nut Tree is led by Imogen Young and Mike North who bought the pub back in 2006.

They serve up a modern take on British cuisine.

The Michelin Guide is produced by the French tyre company Michelin, which has been going since 1904.

They can award up to three Michelin stars for excellence to a select few establishments.

Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin Guides, said: "We are honoured to be bringing our celebration of the finest British and Irish gastronomy to the welcoming and ever-evolving city of Manchester.

"The historic Midland Hote, a long-standing jewel in the city's architectural crown, is a venue befitting of the occasion.

"The Michelin Guide team are busy preparing an event that will do justice to the exceptional skill, dedication and hard work found across our industry."

The list last year included 170 one-Michelin-star restaurants, 25 two-Michelin-star restaurants and just eight three-Michelin-star restaurants.
