Hotel Du Vin Afternoon Tea

  I recently attended the Afternoon Tea blogging event at Hotel Du Vin a few weeks ago in Bristol. I love going to blogger events because I get to mingle with some lovely bloggers and meet some great brands! 

I’ve never had the pleasure of visiting Hotel Du Vin before, I’ve walked past the sign a few times but I had no idea of how beautiful it would be inside. Their website describes it as “a beautifully restored collection of grade II listed buildings from the 1700's, formally a sugar warehouse. Exuding its industrial past with exposed brickwork, high ceilings and elegant décor.”

Hotel Du Vin invited us to try their newly created Afternoon Tea menu that consisted of a bagels, quiches and other savoury snacks, as well as sweet treats like raspberry and dark chocolate tea cakes as well as rhubarb and custard doughnuts. There’s also a variety of teas available, some of which I had never heard of before! 

The menu we had costs £20 per person which is great value because each diner has their own portion of delicious delights, instead of having to share. I didn't try everything on the menu as I'm a Vegetarian, but everyone agreed the food was amazing. I know what some of you are thinking... there's not much food, but trust me, I was so full up, I didn't bother with dinner later on that evening. 

Below is part of the menu taken from the Hotel Du Vin website, it's definately worth a look if you're interested in going.


I was looking forward to try the apple candy floss, however the machine broke just before we got there. See how wonderful it looks though!
As well as sampling the new menu, we were given a tour of the hotel and a chance to view the lovely rooms they have on offer. We ended up getting lost a few times as the place is like a maze!
But once we finally found the rooms, I was surprised on how big they were! My favourite (and biggest room) had a stairs to the bathroom that was above the bed and had two baths next to each other, as well as a huge shower! Amazing! 

Another room we went in had the bathroom behind a door on the right. Everything was so clean and spotless, I just wanted to jump into the shower! 

I had such a wonderful afternoon with the food, drink and friends who attended. Thank you so much Hotel Du Vin for the chance to try your new menu, I will definately be back!
