The second of my visits was just as good as my first. Unfortunately the first involved a glass too many of red wine and so rendered me unable to write a review of any great meaningfulness about my first visit to The Vane Arms. It has occurred to me that, in recent years, there has been a proliferation of food-serving... More

Tom and Vanessa Wade have taken this little village pub and created a super eating place with a delightful atmosphere. The lunch consisted of a good choice of dishes and while I can only speak for the food I had I can sat that the roast beef was delicious and so were the vegetables, particularly the roast root veg. I... More

We have eaten here three times over a 6 month period. On the last visit we both felt that the food was not as good as on our previous visits. The menu does offer a good choice but the quality of food does not reflect the prices. Our last visit was on a cold, wet December lunchtime and the restaurant... More

Booked here as it was recommended by a friend. Had to preorder as there were a few off us but it wasn't a problem as sent it via email. Meal was very nice, although carrots were luke warm but edible. Menu is fine and have lots of choices and reasonably priced. They also have themed nights which maybe worth a... More

We have visited this restaurant many times before and loved the ambience, service and food. Boxing day as a party of 10 we thought we were sure not to be disappointed but I have to reluctantly report, I thought the food was largely very disappointing. I was told it would be a Sunday lunch menu but was not. The chilli... More

Managed to get a table at short notice. We had the starter of seafood platter to share which was huge but delicious. Lots of vegetarian/fish options for main course. Christmas pudding ice cream sundae was the perfect finish to a delicious meal. Lovely staff and very attentive service.

Probably my tenth plus visit here and we have never been disappointed. Just returned from a meal with my family and had the Christmas menu - wow wow wow - go hungry! Food is delicious - always freshly prepared for each course (ie no Microwaves for veg) and the portions are excellent. Tom and his team are welcoming and very... More
