Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Decadence should be experienced at least once and Hotel du Vin Bistro is the venue in town for that experience. From the moment you arrive it’s clear why it has remained one of the most sought-after tickets in town – the décor is classy and the service classic. The dark-hued dining room has an opulent grandeur that is rarely done right and the suggestion of a G&T while you drink in the surroundings seems the ideal start. The food though is the main event. A spectacular amuse-bouche of beetroot macaron with horseradish cream is both inventive and delicious, and torched East coast mackerel that follows is a technical delight. These dishes will effortlessly propel you into a main of poulet noir with black winter truffle and delicate parmesan gnocchi. If you struggle to decide what to have then try the tasting menu to gain the full adventurous experience and add the wine flight of carefully selected wines. Accessibly priced Sunday brunch and pre-theatre menus invite everyone to visit. As they say themselves: ‘There is only One Devonshire Gardens’.

Valentine's Day: A night at One Devonshire Gardens

3 Feb 2010

I’ve always been suspicious of Valentine’s Day. It’s not that I’m not romantic, I just object to being told how, with what colours, and on what day I ought to be expressing my love. All that pink. All that expense. All that expectation. While I can see…
