we visited for the first time today, having already eaten, but the food looked so delicious, we will be going back for lunch and a tour around the vineyard. The staff at this lovely family run vineyard are so friendly and helpful. Of course it would have been extremely rude not to taste a drop of wine, we then felt... More

Our visit had the added benefit of being accompanied by brilliant weather. The tour was conducted by Ken who, as the owner, was a mine of information and a really nice bloke - who obviously had a great passion for his "baby" - the vineyard. All the staff were very hospitable with a welcoming tea/coffee followed by an excellent ploughman's... More

We bought this tour at a charity auction and really enjoyed it, despite inclement weather! The owner gave an enthusiastic and very informative talk about all the processes. Wine was far nicer than we had expected having rarely tasted English wines before! Ploughmans lunch and cream tea was pleasant enough. Would recommend and would deffo pop in for coffee if... More

Greeted by the owner Ken, refreshments and paperwork done, we headed out to the vineyard, where we were told the fascinating story of how the vineyard came to be. Unfortunately the very blustery conditions drove us inside, here we learnt how the wine was made, bottled, stored and then graded and sold. We were invited to taste white,rose, red and... More

Ok so the wine is excellent. Brilliant in fact. But why not back it up with great food. Sandwiches made from sliced packet bread, half a handful of plain crisps and a tired salad garnish are not exactly worthwhile accompaniments to the excellent wine. Oh and the toilets could do with a thorough clean!

I was taken to Old Walls by a friend for my birthday. There was a free tasting of all the wines with the owner Ken who was affable, interesting and passionate about his products. All the white wines were good to very good but the surprise was the 2010 red which was excellent. We had food on the terrace with... More

I chose this from buy a gift, and wasnt at all disappointed. We didnt realise that so much time and effort went into making the wine, a lot of the finishing touches by hand ! It was a lovely sunny day, and the views from the vineyard were breathtaking. Ken takes so much time to go into detail about the... More

Went for my birthday with my other half and friends, was a great day, the couple running it could not have been more lovely, they made the day really special. The food was lovely! The storey and heritage behind the vineyard is lovely, and I don't think that there is one thing about wine making that the owner does not... More
