Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017/18 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

With its high corniced ceilings, pooled lighting, charcoal wallpaper, wood panelling and comfortably upholstered seats, Hotel du Vin Bistro has all the hallmarks of the luxurious destination venue. Aproned waiters work the charming room with grace and ease, while the menu brims with quality ingredients and seasonally fresh produce. Head Chef Barry Duff has a confident touch, intensifying the essence of the main component while peppering his solid creations with playful highlights. Starter of whipped goat’s cheese typifies his style – soft creamy parcels filled with vibrant roasted beetroot alongside some crunchy walnut crumb and fennel pickle – a punchy opener, crackling with flavour. From the mains, venison loin comes thinly sliced on a bed of wilted spinach accompanied by a succulent bundle of slow-cooked haunch meat sown into a cabbage parcel and offset by the silkiest chocolate and chestnut sauce. Sweets are a delight, with the humbly named gingerbread presented as a moist ginger beer cake dotted with a swish theatre of crispy frosted blueberries, coconut snow and fluffy maple ice-cream. A substantial dexterous wine list completes the air of indulgence.

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…
