Meet Loic Cretel, Hampton Manor’s Head Bartender. Loic competes globally in bartending awards; he’s shaken and stirred behind some of the UK’s best bars; 40 St Paul’s, The Colmore Club, and Hind’s Head Bray all made his 2017 list. When he’s clocked off he plays a game of barstool hop as he searches for the best cocktail bars.


We’ve picked Loic’s brains for his top tips for a good tipple – as if anyone knows a bar hotspot when he sees one, it’s him. Here he’s done the hard work for you and reveals his top 5.


At home at Hampton Manor, Loic is often found foraging in the Walled Garden, looking for ingredients to infuse into his garden-led mocktail that kicks off the Manor’s unique afternoon tea experience. The afternoon tea menu and drinks list is driven by the British ingredients that would typically be found in a Victorian garden.


Hampton Manor’s afternoon tea experience is served daily at 3pm, Tuesday to Saturday. Book on 01675 446080 HAMPTONMANOR.COM. Quote
