Latitude / Longitude: 51.45669, -2.59646
Our Locals' Tip: The cheapest local car park is Trenchard Street located behind Colston Hall. Exit the car park at the lower level and walk down past the Colston Hall and turn left. The hotel is a little way along on the left.
Step through the entrance of Hotel du Vin Bristol, into a haven of peace and tranquillity. This elegant Bistro and bar is located close to the harbourside attractions, in a top class hotel that was originally an old Sugar House. The stylish Bistro is one of the top restaurants in Bristol and has won numerous awards for both food and service.
Just inside the entrance you will find an elegant courtyard area where, if weather is good, you can enjoy lunch or sip a pre dinner drink. If the weather turns nasty step inside to the bar area and sink into one of the deep, comfortable sofas or armchairs whilst you browse the mouth-watering menu and eclectic wine list.
Classic French dishes such as Moules du Vin with Frites, Beef Bourguignon and Lobster Thermidor feature on the a la carte menu, alongside a selection of steaks that have been dry aged on the bone for at least 28 days. A variety of wines recommended by the Sommelier are shown on the back of the menu, or make your choice from 500 vintages on the more extensive wine list.
A less formal lunch menu is available - ideal if you are looking for a short break from sightseeing or shopping. You can opt for two or three set price courses or choose from a variety of salads and sandwiches. Don't forget to look at the temptations on the dessert menu. Who can resist a delicious Hot Chocolate Fondant with hazelnut ice cream or a delectable Crepes Suzette Flambe?
Hotel du Vin is a real Bristol gem bringing you a world of attentive service, fantastic food and wonderful ambience and, if you are celebrating a special occasion, the Bistro boasts two private dining rooms.
