Way back when, Edinburgh’s Hotel du Vin used to be the city’s asylum.
These days, people have much happier reasons for paying a visit.
Today’s Big Deal on a superb private dining experience at Hotel du Vin offers a very happy reason to visit this hidden Old Town gem.
Running Sunday to Thursday, the Deal is for eight people to enjoy a three course meal in the Chef’s Table private dining room at Hotel du Vin, Edinburgh.
As well as a glass of Prosecco on arrival, the deal includes a half bottle of house wine per person to accompany your meal.
The menu on offer will depend on what’s in season but Head Chef Gavin Lindsay specialises in putting a modern twist on French home-style cooking.
For example, the dishes on offer might include the salade frisée aux lardons; the roast cod on Puy lentils or the Toulouse sausage and mash.
Additional diners may be added at £36.50 per head, payable directly to the hotel. The Chef’s Table can accommodate groups of up to eight. Larger parties will be seated in The Burke & Hare dining room or The Bedlam dining room.
As the name suggests, wine is at the heart of Hotel du Vin and the wine list makes intriguing reading for wine lovers.
Take up option two of today’s Big Deal and, not only will you enjoy the meal and drinks detailed above, but you will also experience an hour long, three wine, private tasting with the Head Sommelier in the hotel’s striking Laroche Tasting room.
This Big Deal writer has eaten in the private dining rooms at Edinburgh’s Hotel du Vin on a few occasions and I’ve also been at a tasting in the Laroche room.
Each evening has been great fun but the meal in the Chef’s Table, overlooking the kitchen, had a real wow factor.
You don’t have to take my word for it. At the time of writing, just under 200 5pm customers have eaten at Hotel du Vin and given a fantastic combined rating of 4.2/5.
This is what a couple of recent diners thought of their experience:
‘Lovely, once again. This is the second time I’ve been here and I haven’t been disappointed yet. The food was amazing and the service was great again. Can’t fault it and I would recommend it to everyone.’
We liked the short but to the point nature of this: ‘Simply du vin.’
Christmas gift or festive celebration
With vouchers valid until the end of March, this Big Deal would make a very generous Christmas present or it could be used for a Christmas celebration with friends and family or colleagues.
A splendid lunch or dinner is always a pleasure. A great meal in a private dining room becomes a real occasion.
