Wonderful meal as always

Service was excellent as usual very friendly and professional. I chose sirloin steak with a blue cheese sauce and my partner had the liver and bacon. The bread basket is always lovely home made not chunky and very tasty. Steak was cooked to perfection although it did have a lot of fat on it (I'm... read more

Having eaten at the Vane several times already and had good meals, we were looking forward to the special Tapas and wine night at £40 per head, unfortunately it didn't quite make the mark. The starter salad of tuna, fennel and orange salad was good, the tapas started with Gaspachio, which was also good, but it went downhil from there.... More

Food was fantastic, however the menu is limited and although the quality is fantastic I felt it could have been slightly more varied. It is quite expensive, if you come here do not expect your normal bar meal food, this is much more high end and you pay for the quality of the food you are served. The place is... More

Just had the most fantastic lamb followed by American gooseberry crumble. Tom is wasted behind the bar!

I have eaten at The Vane Arms twice within the last week. Firstly, for a last minute dinner trip out with my husband and secondly for a family brunch on Saturday morning on both occasions food, atmosphere and staff were excellent. When visiting with my husband I chose from the specials board, which for a Thursday evening offered a good... More

I recently visited the vane arms for a celebratory lunch with my mum and grandma after seeing the set lunch time menu on the internet which seemed to be fulfilling and reasonably priced for a lunch menu which is why we choose to eat here. However upon arrival we were handed a completely different menu which was nothing compared to... More

We visit this place on a regular basis and can safely say it's never disappointed. Tom and Vanessa always welcome us and will always find time to have a quick chat to see how we are. All the staff are so friendly and we feel like we have been coming here for years. I find it very hard to believe... More

Lovely quaint little pub. Staff were friendly and the food was great. Called in just before lunch time and ordered from the brunch menu. I had the American style pancakes and my partner had a full English breakfast. He swears this is the best full English he has had, and the bacon was amazing!

The food is just awesome we have eaten here lunchtime, brunch time and evening time and we will no doubt revisit as we have family who live locally. Whatever we have had to eat has been very enjoyable... More

We had been constantly told that Sunday Lunch was well recommended by a friend so we booked but was the second last couple to eat due to our time slot. The lunch was good BUT one slice of beef and think they had run out of vegetables as broccoli was served twice. Once with carrots and secondly in a cheese... More
