This was a rare chance for us to have an evening away from home and paternal duties and to relax and enjoy a night out. We picked the vineyard based in its menu and we weren't disappointed. The welcome was friendly and we immediately felt relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble and we we're looked after wonderfully throughout the evening.... More

I have visited this restaurant several times, both having food from the pre-theatre menu and visiting for a meal in its own right, and it has never disappointed. The staff are always very attentive to your needs. The food is well cooked and presented and never leaves you going hungry. Will definitely visit this restaurant again regardless of whether we're...

This was our first visit to the Vineyard and it definitely won't be our last. The waitress was very attentive and the food was fantastic. I had a steak and my partner had scallops. Both were cooked just right and extremely enjoyable. Can't wait to go back

10 years ago The Vineyard was a fantastic restaurant, sadly the years have not been kind. I went with a group of friends on Saturday evening for the pre-theatre menu. When we arrived the restaurant was very busy, with three big tables all looking like they were also going to the theatre. Things started ok, we were shown our table... More

We booked the vineyard for dinner before going onto the derngate to watch a show, foolishly thinking that getting there at 6 would give us ample time to eat 2 courses. There were 2 large tables of customers already seated but as there were 3 wait staff, we didn't feel concerned, our mistake. After being ignored for 20 minutes a... More

It was our first visit to The Vineyard tonight, despite walking past many a time. It was a lovely restaurant. Pleasant, friendly staff and on the whole, lovely food. I had the Prawn and Salmon terrine starter, which tasted lovely, but there could have been a little more of it. My better half had the soup of the day; vegetable,... More

Well I wont lie, after reading some of the reviews I was reluctant to take my Partner here for a=our anniversary and considered booking somewhere else. But I genuinely could not have been more pleased. It was a romantic setting with great music and the staff were friendly and welcoming from the start. It just has that old school family... More

Unfortunately, this meal was a gift and so we were reluctant to complain. However, we feel that the proprietor and prospective users should be aware of the failings of this so called restaurant. Our welcome and greeting was sour faced at the kindest. The prawn cocktail starter was adequate, however the fishcake was ugly to look at and both were... More
