Came for Sunday lunch. Beautifully decorated with pumpkins and Chinese lanterns on the mantelpiece with a real log fire in the hearth. We all really enjoyed our meals which included a traditional roast, shepherds pie and a vegetarian dish; tasty and well presented. The service was efficient but friendly. Have recommended to others and look forward to visiting next time... More

I've been to the Vane Arms on 3 or 4 occasions both in a group and with my wife on our own and couldn't recommend it enough with an excellent/varied wine list and simple well thought out menu which is always appealing - the game is always great and the puddings are excellent. Top class food at reasonable prices in... More

Party of 9 visited on 26th for a birthday celebration, everything was fantastic. Food was superb with a great selection of starters, traditional roast, different main courses and desserts! Nothing could be faulted. Service was excellent, smiling faces and great care taken in ensuring that everyone was well looked after. Great wine and beer selection thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

I've been here a couple of times now and I'm always impressed by the food, service and atmosphere. For a cold windy Wednesday night it was lively.we shared the T-bone steak, crumble and a chocolate dacqouise. All was delicious! I couldn't recommend this place enough

Although I'm not a 'regular', I have visited the Vane Arms on quite a number of occasions and have NEVER been disappointed. The food, service and atmosphere is tremendous. Last night was a little bit different - with entertainment added to the mix...... They have recently introduced 'live music' to The Vane (a couple of times a month I believe?).... More

This is a very comfortable and stylish little Bistro type restaurant in a nice village setting. It's obvious that the owners know what makes a good eating place and make sure they provide it. The food is simple and very tasty and they offer a good range of beer and wine. The atmosphere is friendly and it is just a... More

Had Sunday lunch here today with my family, our first visit to eat since it was refurbished. Firstly the place is warm and welcoming, the staff attentive, and generally a nice venue. Food I have to say was disappointing, portion size not very large, the beef tasty, but not very much of it. Vegetables were ok, I prefer my cabbage... More

we drove to Thorpe Thewles to explore and came upon this little gem. They managed to squeeze us in without booking. Every course was delicious and the portions were a good size. The atmosphere was great and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We will definitely return!

This is a popular venue for us, although we don't often dine out. Good honest food, decent portions, sensible prices. Pleasant surroundings. Friendly efficient service.
