Wine is, of course, a major player at this handsome Georgian townhouse – the prototype for today’s well-known boutique hotel chain. Inside, it looks endearingly 1990s, with themed prints, posters and old bottle displays, while bare floorboards, polished-wood tables and black leather chairs give a shabby-chic look to the French-style bistro and bar. The kitchen’s modern European approach takes on board seasonal Hampshire produce, and mixes fashionably light dishes such as stone bass fillet with crushed new potatoes and fennel ceviche with more robust classics ranging from bouillabaisse to chateaubriand with frites and peppercorn sauce (for two). Also check out the daily plat du jour – whole plaice meunière, perhaps. The wine list is an outstanding tome, and with a pretty walled garden in its heart-of-the-city location, HDV is a fine-weather hot ticket too.
