This proved true within 5 minutes... read more

Booked this restaurant last minute, as a quick dinner before going to watch a show at the Derngate. They had a really good and reasonably priced pre theatre menu. The food was lovely and excellent value for money. Vegetables were fresh and the chips tasted amazing. I will definitely be returning with my friends and family.

We had forgotten this gem was on our doorstep. The restaurant feels light and spacious, and the classic but modern menu offers a great choice of dishes, all of which i would happily have ordered. Service was swift and friendly, all of the dishes arrived in timely fashion, and were perfectly cooked, and the wine selection was excellent. I feel... More

Everything was excellent, very obliging & extremely friendly staff. Prices are on the expensive side however its well worth it. Congratulations Tina on a lovely restaurant & a brilliant service.

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
