Review on Hotel du Vin & Bistro

Formerly known as the Magadalen Chapter located in the cathedral city of Exeter in Devon, it has now become the 17th property to operate under the boutique brand of Hotel du Vin. The setting may be historic, an imposing red bricked 19th century building that once housed the West England Eye Hospital, but nowadays it boasts all manner of up-to-the minute facilities. Their bistro restaurant occupies a contemporary designed glass-walled extension which looks out over the gardens. Featuring a striking high ceiling with hanging pendant lighting, smart red leather chairs and dark wood tables are overlooked by the open kitchen.

The Bistro offers a wide range of culinary delights with a focus on fresh seasonal produce. Amongst the starters look for Severn and Wye treacle cured salmon served with cucumber and samphire salad, lemon curd or Limousin beef carpaccio, Boudin blanc Scotch egg and roasted smoked garlic. Follow on with succulent slow roast Gloucester Old Spot pork belly, chestnuts and pommes mousseline or from the sea, miso marinated cod and mint raita, cucumber salad and bok choi.

The wine list brings together some great wines from around the globe and their expert sommelier is always on hand, ready to advise, guide, match or recommend the perfect wine to complement your food choice.
