The French lawyer and food-lover Lucien Tendret reckoned that those who were indifferent to ‘the pleasures of the table are generally gloomy, charmless and unamiable’.
Dispel gloom and allow yourself to be charmed by today’s Big Deal on a three course meal at the amiable Hotel du Vin restaurant in St Andrews.
Available for lunch on Monday to Saturday and an early dinner from Monday to Friday, the offer is for two people to have a three course meal from the prix fixe menu along with a bottle of house wine to share and tea or coffee to finish.
The St Andrews Hotel du Vin is 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.
Flooded with natural light, the cosy bistro features dark, reclaimed floors, restored fireplaces and beautiful chandeliers – the perfect setting for an indulgent lunch or romantic dinner.
Meal with wine
Available six days a week, today’s Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a fantastic three course meal from the prix fixe menu along with a bottle of house wine to share and tea or coffee to finish.
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.
Typical dishes might be the pork rillettes served with pickled vegetables and country bread; the lamb tagine or the blueberry and yoghurt panna cotta.
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 in St Andrews.
Alternatively, you could use it for a lunch date with a loved one or a pre-theatre bite.
Hotel du Vin in St Andrews consistently scores great reviews from 5pm users. This is what a recent guest had to say:

This Big Deal is a fantastic way to celebrate spring and it would also make a welcome Mother’s Day gift – just a thought.
