A grand townhouse hotel with bags of style and top-end dining – a real special-occasion venue.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

One Devonshire Gardens has been part of the Hotel du Vin chain for ten years, but the stately townhouse hotel – now stretching along all five of the properties in the terrace – retains its unique character. The same-but-different status is clear from the menu, which has a page of dishes created by One Devonshire’s own chef, plus a second page of ‘Hotel du Vin classics’ chosen by the group’s chef-director. The former goes for local and seasonal – Ayrshire beef, west coast seafood – the latter for old-school French, like onion soup and sole meunière. The 1DG page wins on interest, teaming rare and succulent Newtonmore venison with bramble jelly and black pudding bon-bon, or gamey roast wood pigeon with a bittersweet combination of braised endive and pulverised hazelnuts. Excellent though the food is, you’re as likely to come for a phenomenal wine list (at least 28 by the glass, including some rare gems), or the elegant surroundings and ultra-smart service. It’s not cheap, but many others charge just as much without the class.

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…
