Visited for afternoon tea as a treat with girlfriends for a baby shower. I was not disappointed. I expected it to be minuscule portions as with a price tag of only £20 for afternoon tea at somewhere like this that often happens. However that was not the case. Good portions, bottomless different teas (all very good), great nibbles and lovely... More

There are very few hotel restaurants that I would choose to eat in; this is one of the exceptions. Ambience, food and service all good as far as I am concerned. Its not cheap to eat here, but a nice treat, especially if you are staying at the hotel too.

What can I say.... From my 1st review of this place to the 2nd is day and night. Given a very noisy room but in all fairness the the general manager Peter did move me late in the evening. However the new rooms bed was noisy and I had another resident below knock my door complaining of the noise at... More

We had a wonderful Sunday lunch here ..eight of us for my birthday. We all ate very well, except for my daughter who is vegetarian. The French buffet talble offered her nothing but salad leaves and a few mainated artichokes. No cheese or egg or other salad items. The main "choice" was not actually a choice....just mushroom risotto. The latter... More

I attended a conference at the hotel and loved it's unique and wonderful entrance, surrounded by plants and outdoor seating, before walking into a cosy, warm and rustic reception. The facilities were clean and tidy, it was well taken care of and full of character. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and I have a buffet meal which consisted... More

I booked a table for 10 people at the bistro because I didn't want to spend the extra money to book one of the private dining rooms but the staff surprised me with a special room at the side of the bistro which can be apparently booked for free. The room was excellent! It gave us enough privacy but was... More

Over the years we have stayed and eaten here on a number of occasions, and the food is definitely not what it used to be. The room is charming, and the ambience promising for an enjoyable evening, however the food this time was not at all first class. The waiters were efficient rather than friendly, however that was not a... More

A group of friends gathered for a long Sunday lunch to celebrate a 60th birthday. Very good food, attentive service, and (obviously) an extensive wine list. We had a private room which made for a very convivial afternoon. I would thoroughly recommend the Hotel du Vin for this sort of informal gathering.

We've eaten (and stayed) here before but never had Sunday lunch. It was my husband's birthday and we had a fab time. A really relaxed atmosphere, with live jazz being played in the bar. We sat in the bar in the comfy Sherlock chairs and had a pre-dinner G&T listening to the music... perfect. The meal is 4 courses for... More

As a post natal treat my friend & I enjoyed afternoon tea in the relaxed atmosphere of the Hotel Du Vin. It felt like we were treated as royalty with Dani being accommodating, knowledgeable & professionally attentive. I would highly recommend the Du Vin experience to anyone.

Opened in 1999, the Bistro restaurant welcomes diners seven days a week for lunches and dinners consisting of the finest in local produce (see the self explanatory yet carefully created Land, Sea and Local Menu).
