I'd heard good things about this place and was excited to give it a try for Sunday lunch. We were quickly seated and the food arrived promptly. I asked for my roast beef pink, but it was only slightly lighter in colour than those in my party who requested well done. I was served one thick cut piece of meat,... More

We absolutely love this place and go on average once a week, treating it as our local even though it is a few miles away. The food is beautiful, with unbelievable homemade bread and stunning desserts made by the truly talented Vanessa. Menu offers great selection of starters mains and puds, good range of beer/lager and fab wine list. I... More

We arrived at 6pm, and were greeted by a very friendly member of staff (Rosie). She was efficient and helpful on choosing from the menu, as I don't really like meat! There was no one in the pub when we were seated, but it soon filled up. Our food was FRESH and TASTY, with no long waiting in between courses.... More

Visited a few times, always delicious. Good specials boards, not masses of choice but we've always found dishes to suit our tastes. I've tried homemade burgers and pies, fresh fish and a delicious Sunday lunch. A must visit

We visit here on a regular basis and although it isn't cheap the food is excellent. We visited last Friday evening, the place was busy but not too busy and the menu had plenty to choose from. I wanted to taste every wine on the menu but only tried three, the two Riesling were amazing! The staff are always exceptional... More

The Vane offers an excellent sunday lunch menu with a fixed price 2 course and 3 course option. I had the chicken which was succulent, my husband and father in law had the beef (with the option of pink or well done they were both satisfied). This is definately quality over quantity as they avoid piling up your plate (which... More

After looking on trip advisor for local pubs which sold nice food my family decided to try here and was very surprised. As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a warm welcome from the staff. The time it took to receive our food from ordering was excellent and the quality was superb. I would definitely recommend coming... More

Staying with friends in Mordon and went out for Sunday lunch. The Vane had been recommended to them and we were advised to book. We were not disappointed. Good choice, all freshly cooked , service was excellent and we all said that it was certainly somewhere we would like to go back to. Please ignore the mark given for the... More

We live in the village of Thorpe Thewles and have eaten at the Vane Arms on several occasions, the fillet steak is supremely well cooked and there is a diverse menu without being so overly extensive it boggles your mind. All food is very well cooked and enjoyable, a nice ambience and popular place to eat with villagers and outsiders... More
