This restaurant feels like you are sitting in somebody's dining room, very welcoming. The staff were all very friendly and the pre theatre 2 course meal was excellent value for money.

Visited on Thursday 28 January for pre theatre meal before seeing the Jersey Boys show at the Derngate. Pre theatre menu is excellent and good value I think it was £12.95 for two courses. I chose roast pork with apple sauce and my friend had the chicken and ham pie. This was served with yummy sauté potatoes and fresh veg.... More

I had advised this restaurant for many moons, for no particular reason. The service was absolutely second to none. The food was mouth watering, I particularly enjoyed the garlic mushrooms for starter and we each ordered the steak was cooked to perfection. We shall certainly be visiting The Vineyard again.

The Vineyard is very close to the theatres in Northampton and an ideal place to eat before a show. However we were shopping and needed lunch.but wanted something more than pub grub. This small restaurant filled the bill. Very clean and nicely laid out, the welcome was warm and helpful. We took the lunchtime menu offer of 2 courses for... More

We tried this restaurant for a pre-theatre meal. Excellent. The place is quite small but very convenient for the Royal & Derngate theatre. We really enjoyed the ambience. They had a very reasonably priced pre-theatre special menu and the food was very good, well presented and prepared. Service was prompt and pleasant. I would make one comment, which is not... More

We visited on a Monday evening. It was quiet with only three tables including us. The service was very quick. Good selection on the a la carte menu. The food was very well cooked and presented. We would recommend the duck and lamb mains. We hope to visit again
