Madame de Pompadour, the official (!) mistress to Louis XV, once said ‘Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking it’.
We have no idea if this is true but we are more than happy to conduct in-depth research into Mme. P’s proposal.
Explore the beautifying effects of Champagne and enjoy a fine lunch with today’s Big Deal at the Bistro in Hotel du Vin, St Andrews.
Vouchers are valid from the start of May to 30th July 2016.
Overlooks West Sands beach
Located on The Scores, the hotel overlooks the famous West Sands beach and is a two minute walk from the R&A Clubhouse and First Tee on the Old Course.
The heart of the hotel is the bistro. Flooded with natural light, the cosy bistro features dark, reclaimed floors, restored fireplaces and beautiful chandeliers – the perfect setting for an indulgent lunch.
Available Monday to Saturday, today’s Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a fantastic three course lunch from the prix fixe menu along with a glass of Champagne to ensure that the chat stays bubbly.
The menu changes regularly but is always inspired by French home-style cooking and offers robust, earthy dishes.
While the dishes are influenced by the culinary traditions of our French friends, they are made with fresh, seasonal, locally sourced and, wherever possible, organic produce.
Hotel du Vin, St Andrews has been building quite a following on its 5pm Dining page. Over a hundred reviewers have given it a combined rating of 4.1/5. The following is typical:
‘Excellent. Used the voucher yesterday. I had cheekily requested a sea view which we got. The food was excellent; service wonderful. Can only recommend.’
Treat a friend, indulge a lover
This offer would be a lovely treat for a friend or it could make for a luxurious break in a marathon shopping trip. Of course, it would also make a fitting finish to a round of golf.
Alternatively, you could use it for a lunch date with a loved one. Champagne, lunch and then the afternoon is yours to spend as you please.
