An elegant retreat, Hotel du Vin Cambridge has a trademark French bistro, a vibrant open kitchen and a quirky outdoor cigar shack. The former University-owned building has a cosy library, while the labyrinthine cellar bar features seductive alcoves and a sophisticated Laroche wine tasting room.

The Hotel du Vin menu celebrates elegant French bistro-style dining, using fresh premium ingredients. Delicate starters such as seared scallops give way to bold mains, which include rich duck confit and wild venison haunch with cranberries and bitter chocolate.

The exquisite Hotel du Vin wine list is brought to you by the head sommelier, featuring a huge variety of carefully selected bottles. A Sunday lunch menu and an array of delectable desserts also feature.

Opposite Fitzwilliam Museum, Hotel du Vin Cambridge offers sophisticated French bistro-style dining in the centre of Cambridge. The historic King's College is just a 6-minute walk away.

    Arrived early and was asked to wait in cellar bar even though there were many spare tables. Rather gloomy down there when it was a lovely sunny day "street-side". Meal excellent - and well worth trip. Wine not the lowest cost but adequate. Can recommend and will visit again but not cellar.

  • ((((* by from Bishop's Stortford

    The menu was cut down from the a la carte but there was enough choice and not just the cheapest. The food was good and we enjoyed it, especially as the weather was good enough to use the "secret garden".

    non alcoholic drinks were watery, generally too expensive, 1 food option very expensive but not large enough to warrant price, generally over priced but staff were good

  • ((*** by from cambridge

    too many staff portions were too small unless you went for the cheaper options and then cheaper ingredients were packed out.
