About Hotel du Vin Bistro St Andrews
Made to feel very special, table was in perfect place. The food was delicious and the staff were really lovely, friendly and professional. We enjoyed our experience immensely and had a lovely lunch and afternoon. Thank you.
Excellent with fab views
The meal and service was excellent and the views were stunning. We had a table overlooking the sea and the west sands and old course
Classic French style bistro
Hotel du Vin Bistro is a classic French bistro on The Scores in St Andrews. Flooded with natural light, the cosy bistro features dark, reclaimed floors, restored fireplaces and beautiful chandeliers. As the du Vin in the name suggests, this bistro offers a splendid selection of wines from around the world and the hotel’s friendly and highly trained sommelier is more than happy to guide guests around the list.
French home-style cooking
The menus at the HdV Bistro are all about dishes which are fresh, seasonal, locally produced and, as far as is possible, organic. The kitchen likes to produce hearty, home style cooking with a classic French or, occasionally, a traditional British flavour.
On the plate, this means starters such as the pear, walnut and Roquefort salad or the crab toast. It means beef Bourguignon served on the bone; coq au Riesling; roasted lamb rumps and bouillabaisse. The towering HdV burger is always popular as are the 28-day-aged steaks cooked on the charcoal-fired Josper grill.
