Hotel du Vin Events Season - Autumn and Winter 2012‏

I have been a fan of Cambridge's Hotel du Vin ever since I first took Mrs CWB there for lunch to mark a memorable occasion.

Set in a quaintly refurbished row of terraces houses in the centre of town, it has an effortless, unpretentious sophistication that contrasts with both the chain-outlets that serve our tourist visitors and the more self-conscious Michelin-starred hang-outs.

Sitting opposite the Fitzwilliam Museum, it is Old School and erudite without being imposing.

Last year, General Manager Jacqui Griffiths invited me to attend a number of the Hotel's events as a guest, so I got to sample cigars with a group of transplant surgeons, chat with Axa Millesime's MD Christian Seely about port-making and step inside the wondrous Cheese Van.

This autumn sees a similarly impressive series of events lined up, with a Champagne Dinner on October 25th, a Steak Masterclass with Head Chef Jonathan Dean on November 6th, a Croatian Wine Dinner on 22nd November and plans for a Whiskey Dinner.

One lucky reader of the blog will shortly win a pair of tickets to the Champagne dinner with runners-up getting complimentary glasses of Champagne at the Hotel.

Come November 19th, there is an early bird lunch and dinner offer (3 courses for under £30) that runs until 3rd December and is then followed by the Christmas Anticipation menu from December 4th to 24th.

However, if you really want to do things in style, there is a Christmas Day lunch and a New Year's Eve dinner with a stay-over package.

Take your sweetheart to one of these and you might just find yourselves returning for one of the Wedding Fayres in January and April.

Full details of the events season can be found on the Hotel's website or by contacting them directly.
