St Andrews is one of the most magnificent towns in the UK.
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, there are few better places to enjoy a day out.
Take in the scenic surroundings dining on a leisurely four course Sunday lunch with a bottle of wine with today’s Big Deal at Hotel du Vin Bistro St Andrews.
Today’s Big Deal is for a four course Sunday lunch for two with a bottle of wine to share.
The lunch starts with a seasonal soup before moving on to the lavish French market table. This is the centrepiece of Hotel du Vin’s Sunday lunch and features a generous buffet of fresh seafood, charcuterie, pâtés, rillettes, salads, vegetables and freshly baked artisan bread.
But don’t fill yourself up too much because afterwards it’s time for your main course. A traditional roast, perhaps? Or maybe fish and chips, steak frites, a burger, omelette Arnold Bennett or ratatouille?
The indulgent experience ends with a dessert. Crème brûlée, profiteroles, and an artisan cheese board are some of the desserts on offer.

‘This is a very pleasant restaurant with magnificent views. There seemed to be a lot of staff who were all exceptionally pleasant. The Sunday lunch was excellent, soup followed by a buffet of lots of various seafood including lobster and various breads meats pates etc, then followed by the main course which are mainly traditional courses such as roast beef, finished off with a lovely desert. We were so pleased that we booked to return for Easter Sunday when my son could join us. All in all, I would recommend this restaurant. 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. Beautiful food, tried snails for the first time. It was a lovely special treat and I will definitely book again and recommend. Thanks for a great day!’
Wonderful day out
This Big Deal for a four course lunch with a bottle of wine at Hotel du Vin St Andrews makes a wonderful day out.
You could spend all afternoon at the bistro, lingering over the delicious food, and sitting in the outdoor area taking in the Scottish scenery, if it’s not too chilly.
Or you could spend the rest of the day exploring the multitude of sights St Andrews has to offer.
