We found the bar area in here to be poorly lit, maybe ok in the evening but on a bright Sat afternoon, we found it to be dark and dingy. Only expensive bottled beers served here, for us beer drinkers.

Stopped here for a night during the Easter weekend on a Travelzoo dodgy deal. As Old Boots has said, the place is really a wine bar with very little for the beer drinker. All that was on offer when I was there was Old Legover, Punk IPA and Deuchers IPA, all in bottles, very, very cold and expensive. Whilst at the bar I overherd a conversation between the barman and a regular about the beer selection. In short a request to head office for a better selection had been squashed as to sell beer was outside the trading model that had been defined by Hotel du Vin. Me thinks you are missing a trick boys? Although plentiful due to a hen night, I couldn't possibly comment on the caliber of the totty!!

As one may expect an elegant and rather pricey establishment much given to the grape rather than grain and hops. No draught beers are sold, no T-bars or hand pumps to lower the tone on this counter, there is a selection of bottled beers in the fridge if you must, local ale Old Leg Over, Vedett and Anchor make an appearance. A sign on the wall reminds us this is a claret and champaign bar. The expensive interior is furnished in leather and walnut with highly polished floors and a strange staircase leading up to somewhere and another leading down to somewhere else. The ladies and disabled toilets are down a wheelchair friendly slope behind the hotel reception desk. The décor is understated with bronze and cream walls, some well chosen prints, a selection of clocks showing different times and some cabinets of champaign bottles. The larger part of the ground floor is actually the bar with a long dining room off to one side , there is also an outside garden/patio area at the rear. Naturally the tables are candle powered and the totty is of a high order.
