The surroundings are just as enticing as the sweet treats on offer with today’s Big Deal for an afternoon tea for two at Hotel du Vin St Andrews.

Recent reviews (edited for length) say:
‘This is a very pleasant restaurant with magnificent views. We were so pleased that we booked to return for Easter Sunday when my son could join us. On the way out we discovered a delightful little outside area which I am looking forward to visiting for an afternoon cocktail after our next visit.’
‘Hotel du Vin were kind enough to give us a table at the bay window overlooking the beach as I had requested this on booking. They made a fuss over my friend who’s birthday it was and were really lovely to us. Service was fantastic as I hadn’t printed my voucher and they assisted me on emailing same once we had enjoyed our meals. It was a lovely special treat and I will definitely book again and recommend. Thanks for a great day!’
Day out to St Andrews
This Big Deal is a fantastic option for an winter day out.
After indulging in the afternoon tea you could explore the magnificent town of St Andrews which is home to the world’s most famous golf course, Scotland’s oldest university (where Prince William and Kate Middleton studied, among others), medieval ruins and a spectacular coastline with white sandy beaches.
This Big Deal would also be the perfect gift for anyone who adores afternoon tea.
