Last weekend, we were invited out of She & Hem towers to sample the new afternoon tea at Hotel Du Vin in the heart of Bristol. We’re happy to announce that it was, in the words of Mary Berry, absolutely scrumptious. Served daily from 12pm to 6pm, Hotel Du Vin have added their own spin to the traditional afternoon tea, by combining standard savories such as salmon sandwiches and sumptuous scones, with more unusual treats in the form of chocolate tea cakes and candy floss. Yes, you heard correctly, sugary sweet candy floss as part of an afternoon tea. What a treat! We had a lovely few hours devouring the two courses, admiring the gorgeous hotel and even making new blogger friends (Hi New Mum OnlinePurple Ella and Forget Me Knit!). What a perfect Sunday!

Jo and I (Victoria) have both previously had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Du Vin, and after attending this event, we are both lusting after a return visit. A former Sugar House with contemporary loft style bedrooms and exposed brickwork, it’s definitely one of the most luxurious hotels in Bristol. In fact, the hotel’s restaurant is so inviting that when my husband and I stayed over recently for my birthday, we decided to eat in the hotel, something we rarely ever do.

Unfortunately, neither myself nor Jo were able to partake in the cocktail tasting this time around (damn babies!), so we’re itching to go back in a few months time to try the new drinks menu, all created especially for the hotel by the Bristol staff. Don’t feel too sorry for us though, as the ever accommodating Hotel Du Vin were more than happy to whizz up some iced coffee’s just for us! Turns out this pregnancy thing does have it’s perks.

  1. Oh you’ve captured the day so well and with beautiful photography. I’m aching to go back and how great that you’ve had a stay there. I loved how unusual the building was. Such a strong sense of history. Wish I’d taken notes but I think they said it’s been there since 1700s. Was such a lovely event and the nicest afternoon tea I’ve ever had and I’ve even had The Waldorf’s and Harrods’. Thanks so much for the mention. Xx

    • Thank you Liska!

      Wow, I’ve yet to try afternoon tea at The Waldorf or Harrods, lucky thing! Maybe we will all go back to HDV one day! Vx
