Hotel du Vin & Bistro Poole

Thames Street, The Quay, Poole, Dorset, BH15 1JN
This splendid Georgian townhouse, previously The Mansion House, is now a branch of the expanding Hotel du Vin group – and blends in with their successful formula of comfortable bedrooms packaged up with brasserie-style dishes. Much of the best has been retained including the main dining room with its cherry wood panelling.As a group, the base menus change with the seasons, but allow the kitchen team a little room for manoeuvrability. While a bistro by name, the atmosphere is serious and might be considered too formal by those seeking a more light-hearted style.
A summer snapshot brought the likes of ‘Black Pudding Mousse with Poached Egg Salad’; ‘Chilled Pea Soup’; ' Chicken Liver & Foie Gras Parfait with Red Onion Marmalade & Toasted Brioche' and ‘Pan Fried Scallops with Pork Rillette, Beetroot & Pea Jelly’ amongst the starters.
Perhaps, ‘Pan-fried Turbot with Ratte Potatoes and Salmon Consommé’; ‘Confit of Duck Leg with Pak Choi and Red Wine Jus’; 'Whole Squab Pigeon with Fricassé of Summer Beans' and ‘Rump of Lamb with Ratatouille and Olive Mash’ among the mains.
Perhaps finish with ‘Gooseberry Fool with Lime Sorbet’; ‘Honey-roasted Figs with Goats’ Cheese Ice Cream; or Farmhouse Cheese, in peak condition. No mobile phones. If you plan ahead, you can book a room in one of their comfortable bedrooms.
