Food & Beverage

We are thrilled to introduce a new restaurant concept Goram + Vincent from Hotel du Vin at the Avon Gorge Hotel. Imagine a gritty, earthy smoke house with open kitchen for fire, smoke and theatre, coal fired grills, a smoker and bespoke clay ovens. It’ll be a meat eater’s mecca, with big hand cut steaks by the 100g and mouth-watering thick cut filets, we have a range of delicious non-meat option too, including vegan and vegetarian dishes, exciting sides that bring the meal alive and sweet and sour salads for the perfect accompaniment.

Lounge away in the Clifton Cocktail Bar and unwind in this cosy corner of our hotel. Furnished with new sofas, modern armchairs and plush cushions, it’s the perfect place to relax, admire the extensive art collection or simply enjoy a drink or two.

Our extensive and eclectic wine list is a key feature of the hotel, as well as our remarkable variety of wines by the glass. Our team is always on hand to give friendly and knowledgeable advice on wines, spirits, cocktails and cigars.

Open throughout the year, the White Lion Bar is a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike. Check out the recently refurbished interior or take a peek at one of the largest terraces in the south west, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the world famous Clifton Suspension Bridge and the hills of Somerset.

Meetings, Events, Social and Private Dining

Our exciting brand new function space at the Avon Gorge is inspired by the hotels’ original features that were long hidden and fortunately re-discovered during the renovation process.

Imagine large steel pipes, a grand marble staircase, beautiful stained glass windows, tile floors and Turkish doors, all reminiscent of the times when people came here to drink from the “health-giving” spa water (Aquam Bibe) or to enjoy a long soak in one of the Turkish baths of the former Spa & Hydro hotel. All those elements have been carefully worked into the new design of our meetings & events space, merging contemporary modern design with historic character and providing our clients’ with today’s business needs. From state of the art IT equipment, to an array of fresh and seasonal menus and sleek professional service.

Make any occasion a special occasion and welcome family and friends in the privacy of your own dining room. From casual BBQs on your private terrace with fantastic views of the Gorge and Suspension bridge to elegant sit down meals in the beautiful Aquam Bibe.


A stunning wedding venue like no other that’s truly out of the ordinary. Start with a drinks reception on your own private part of the outdoor terrace with its magnificent views. Then envision your grand red carpet entrance on the original marble staircase, leading into your private wedding venue with an abundance of historical character and charm, yet modern and contemporary at the same time.

Many features of the former baths of the Spa & Hydro hotel are still preserved and make Aquam Bibe so special today. Arrange a visit to see and fully appreciate, how the mix of historic charm and modern design could be the perfect background for any wedding.
