Classically French. Undeniably British.
It's about serving up dishes that rely heavily on fresh and seasonal produce. It's about enjoying moderately priced à la carte dining in a down-to-earth, warm and relaxing setting. All served by attentive and exceptionally knowledgeable waiting staff, happy to explain the dishes, the ingredients, and how our talented Chefs put them together. Always on hand, your Sommelier is also ready to advise, guide, match or recommend the perfect wine.
As for the décor - think natural daylight, reclaimed dark-stained floorboards, restored fireplaces, framed pictures and paintings, soft lighting and comfortable chairs. This is Bistro du Vin. Bistro dining at its heart warming, mouth watering best.
OUR NEW SPRING A LA CARTE
Sample our elegant new spring menu with all the delicious fresh tastes of the new season’s produce at Hotel du Vin. Enjoy moules marinière to chase the winter blues away or maybe a Provençal soup to welcome the new season. Get excited about our fantastic new main courses with canard and boudin noir saucisson with pickled red onions and baby kale or old favourites such as Gloucester Old Spot pork belly and pommes mousseline paired with a bottle of wine from our extensive selection with the help of one of our sommeliers. Finish your meal with our new, lighter dessert menu with delicious sweets such as sea salt caramel fondant or a pear and almond tart.
Whether you're staying with us, meeting friends or having an early meeting, you can join us for a divine Hotel du Vin Breakfast. The country table offers freshly squeezed juices, cereals, baked pastries, fruit, natural yoghurts and crunchy granola. The cooked breakfast offers all the delights from the country table as well as a choice of everything from traditional breakfast favourites, boiled eggs and soldiers, classic crêpes and eggs Benedict.
Drinks come in and out of fashion. One week cocktails, the next whisky. But tea will always remain in vogue for anyone seeking the perfect refreshment. Sample a range of outstandingly good tea infusions created for us by Twinings who boast a rich history producing classic tea blends or fruity infusions and providing truly exceptional tasting teas since 1706.
