Visted as part of wedding reception

Wedding included a wine tour and tasting. Wedding meal was very good as was the locally sourced win. Fine views of the Downs and vineyard from the third floor restaurant.

My sister brought us tickets for Denbies for our Wedding Anniversary so we waited for the warmer weather to arrive as the views in the area are very pretty especially on a sunny day. After a confusion over the tickets as it had a train ride added which is no more unless you go on the outside train which takes... More

Nicely laid out with good car parking and an extra farm shop and B&B on site. Lots of public pathways to walk if you wish and a little train to drive you around the estate. great if the weather is ok. We prebooked to do a tour of the winery with a little tasting and the train tour. Good video... More

There is something missing...the outdoors just don't get along with the indoor of the restaurant. They should do something, it's almost like the restaurant needs a kick, something quirky to realise its potential. The waiters were polite and service was good. The food was well presented and pretty but lacked in flavour.

Met a friend for lunch. I had a yum yum which was hard, and my friend had a scone which tasted stale. When I mentioned this later on to a member of staff, I got a refund for the yum yum, but not the scone. I was told that the scones are fresh every day, and the cold area where... More

Small farm shop, very pricy. Food was o.k. nice ginger-beer. Although the vineyard was big enough the inside attractions were on the small side & very expensive!!!!

Turned up at 11:30 for an early lunch due to having to wait in the area for some work to be done, and was told to visit the winery. We are a young couple and were hugely disappointed to be turned away from their main restaurant, which was empty, as it was fully booked. We then proceeded to eat downstairs... More

I am a vintner and have been on many wine tastings before and was excited to pay for the food and wine tour. I have never had such a poor experience. We nearly missed the tour as Denbies did not even call for the tour people to make their way through, dreadful, I was angry, No apology. We did not... More

It's the third or fourth time I've done the indoor tour of Denbies and it's been another enjoyable occasion. I would say that the 360 degree film is looking dated now and could do with being updated. The group sizes seem to have grown which makes you feel a bit less special and more crowded, and also the indoor train... More
