In February, we relaunched the Bistros in our York and Harrogate hotels, following a complete refurbishment.

We recently unveiled a number of other Bistro refurbishments across the Hotel du Vin family, including Winchester and Cambridge, and will continue to do so over the next 24 months.

Each as striking as the other, the revamped restaurants are a return to our roots, evoking the traditional French Bistros that first inspired us, but with a distinctly contemporary feel. Muted hues, clean lines and soft lighting are embellished with gorgeous plants and foliage throughout, complementing the vast windows, and creating a bright but warm space.

In Hotel du Vin York, terracotta and botanical green interiors are paired with simple furniture and modern, softly lit lamps to create a warm, intimate feel, while the 16 globed chandelier in the centre of the York restaurant oozes elegance. Curtained alcoves and banquet style seating have been introduced to give our guests a semi private dining experience without losing the buzz of the Bistro.


Meanwhile in Hotel du Vin Harrogate, the contemporary yet traditional finishes have given the Harrogate restaurant a sense of sophistication. The olive-green walls are adorned with mirrors making for a bright, airy feel with light cascading throughout. The soft lighting creates a relaxed setting, designed to encourage guests to relax and take their time while dining. The new colour scheme extends into the private dining room, which has also had a makeover of its own, complete with golden chandeliers. With stunning views over The Stray, it is the perfect restaurant in Harrogate for a special celebration.


We have also introduced a new Prix Fixe menu to the bistros, which brings together heart-warming, traditional French food and quality, regionally sourced ingredients. Venison is slowly cooked with North Brewing Pinata ale for the venison and beetroot pie; pigs cheeks are braised in Orchard Pig Truffler Cider; the Devon crab cake is filled with Swaledale original cheddar, and, of course, Yorkshire rhubarb takes pride of place in the crumble.

Our unrivalled wine selection has remained at the forefront of both properties. The carefully selected list – curated by our expert sommeliers - brings together a comprehensive selection spanning regions and grapes to suit all palettes.

To celebrate the relaunch of both restaurants, we have introduced five incredible, limited-time offers in York and Harrogate:
