    A little disappointing. My friend's chicken burger was good and my sea bass was quite nice although the portion was rather small. The dessert of chocolate tart was so hard I struggled to cut through it so ended up leaving most of it.

    Both the premises and staff are well above average, all four of us thoroughly enjoyed the meals and drinks.

    The meal was nice and the service was good. Only criticism was that my wife and i both ordered the creme brûlée and once they arrived it became clear that her dessert was a much bigger serving than mine.

    We have eaten at Hotel du Vin on a number of occasions and the four of us thought that this was one of the best experiences we had had. Staff were excellent, even though the restaurant was very busy indeed with prompt and efficient service at all times. They all seemed genuinely happy and had time for a quick chat without neglecting other diners. The food was perfect with enough choices from the Booktable/Set Menu offer and we were impressed that they took care with one diner who needed a gluten-free diet and happily substituted the desserts for cheese for another diner who is diabetic. The quality and presentation of the food matched the taste - very good.

    We came here for a special occasion and it was the perfect setting for that as it had a nice atmosphere and candles lit at each table. Very good service but we didn't like that a service charge was included in the bill. The food was fairly good but there were not many options for me as a vegetarian (one starter and two mains). I think that may be inkeeping with the French theme as I often find it difficult to eat out there. We didn't have time to stay for dessert but the menu looked very tempting, with lots of cheese, port and sweet wine to choose from.
