High-Five to Robert Potter as the Manor House's Bybrook restaurant  retains its Michelin star

Golfers visiting The Manor House, Wiltshire, can not only enjoy one of the best courses in the South West, but also an exceptional dining experience as the hotel celebrates its fifth consecutive year of retaining a Michelin star at its Bybrook restaurant under executive chef Robert Potter’s leadership.

Robert and his team of talented chefs create delicious seasonal dishes crafted from local ingredients, enhanced by wines of the world expertly matched by its sommelier, and have again been rewarded with the coveted Michelin star award for their efforts.

Taking its name from the river that meanders through the hotel grounds and the golf course, the restaurant adds another unsurpassed element to an already outstanding destination for golfers.

The delightful championship-standard 18-hole course is immersed in the enchanting surroundings of the Cotswolds, with 365 acres of breathtaking rolling countryside as a backdrop, offering some of the most idyllic scenery which can be seen on an English golf course.

The spectacular course, designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark, is complemented by the opulent 14th-century country house hotel, which is home to the Bybrook restaurant, as well as a dedicated gin bar, 21 individually styled rooms and suites and 29 picturesque cottages full of character.

Golfers can enjoy the Bybrook restaurant after a day out on the course, offering beautiful settings in a relaxed, yet elegant, atmosphere.

Understandably over the moon with his team’s achievement, Potter said: “We are so pleased to have retained our Michelin star status here at Bybrook for the fifth year running.

“2020 presented an incredibly challenging landscape for the hospitality industry and we feel proud to have been able to showcase the best that Bybrook has to offer, each and every time we were able to open our doors.

“My team and I look forward to many more opportunities to welcome guests to the restaurant throughout 2021, which we hope will see a fruitful return of the hospitality industry”.

Danny Pecorelli, managing director at the Exclusive Collection, comments: “We are so delighted to learn that the Michelin guide has recognised Rob Potter’s continued success and commitment to Bybrook at The Manor House.

“It is of significance to us here at Exclusive Collection that our chefs’ passion for seasonal and sustainable produce has been celebrated, as we drive our sustainability mission forwards for the entirety of our luxury hotel collection. We wish Rob and his brigade the very best for 2021.”.
