We could drink Champagne at any time of year but it always tastes best when sipped in the summer sunshine.
Enjoy a summery Champagne lunch with today’s Big Deal at Hotel du Vin in Edinburgh’s Old Town.
Available Monday to Saturday, this Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a glass of Champagne and a lavish three course lunch from the prix fixe menu at Edinburgh’s Hotel du Vin. Tea or coffee will finish off your lunch.
Atmospheric Old Town
Tucked away off a beguiling courtyard in the atmospheric Old Town, Edinburgh’s Bistro du Vin is a warm, welcoming space with restored fireplaces and lots of wine merchant memorabilia.
This offer would be a lovely treat for a friend or it could make for a luxurious break in a marathon shopping trip. You could even use it for a lunch date with a loved one.
Champagne, lunch and then the afternoon is yours to spend as you please.
If the weather is behaving, there may even be the possibility of dining al fresco in the hotel’s sun trap courtyard.
Robust, earthy dishes
Inspired by French home-style cooking with robust earthy dishes, and slow-cooked foods, Bistro du Vin’s Gallic-influenced menu has an undeniably British flavour.
The exact dishes on the menu will change depending on the produce available. Typical starters might be the ham hough terrine with a celeriac reduction or a watermelon and feta salad.
Popular main courses include the coq au vin; grilled vegetable spaghetti and the poached salmon with a beetroot and new potato salad.
Desserts like the profiteroles and chocolate sauce or the banana bread and butter pudding with vanilla ice cream will bring your meal to a sweet finish.
Sides, such as the pommes frites, wilted spinach and honey-roasted carrots, will be charged at £3.50.
