We were invited along to try out the new "Le Brunch" at Hotel du Vin. We have dined here on a couple of occasions and like it a lot, so we were eager to try their brunch menu. At £19.50 per person, we were expecting to be spoiled. We certainly were!
Curried Parsnip Soup was the Soup du Jour - creamy and not too overpowering with the curry flavour. Could have done with being hotter for me, but I did like the frothy consistency.
You then go onto their French Market Table. As you can see it is set up with all sorts of delights. Anti pasti, breads, Serrano ham to be carved, salami, salmon, smoked mackeral pate, oysters, dressed crab, salads....
Roast Aberdeen Beef Rib with vegetables and yorkie - only disappointment here was the huge amount of air in the Yorkie and not enough thick batter to soak up the delicious red wine gravy. Vegetables were crispy but cooked, beef - mouthwatering.
and still more!
We finished with two espressos served with some lovely puff candy.
Again, very impressed with Hotel du Vin. Attentive and friendly staff, excellent food, and a lovely leisurely brunch. Would be one to pencil into the diary again.
