    A wonderful evening out made special by excellent service, sumptuously tasty food and a welcoming ambiance!

    We went on a special menu offer. Three items were unavailable (one of three starters, plus two of the three mains) and they agreed to substitute as this greatly limited choice. One dessert was served without the signature accompaniment - when pointed out an alternative (but not so complementary in flavour) was provided. Very disappointing. Service and ambience were fine but would not dine here again. It was mid week, a quiet evening and we had booked months in advance. Had they thought to forewarn us we might have changed our date to be able to enjoy properly what Hotel du Vin could offer.

    Rather uninspiring. The staff didn’t realised we booked with the fixed price menu and then made us feel awkward about it. Food was average, 3* at best. Really wanted to try this place but won’t be returning.

    Service was excellent. Bar staff extremely helpful and attentive. Food was stunning. We had the Chateau- Briant which was superb. It was our 25 wedding anniversary and we hadn’t complimentary drinks and truffles in the bar. They made our evening very special and members of the waiting staff were all aware and offered their congratulations. We have dined there many tines before, we will continue to do so. Amazing!
