Amazing

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... read 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

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!

We have eaten here a few times recently on our visits to the Northeast. The staff are lovely, friendly and always helpful. 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

Lunchtime menu is good value, but the food isn't anything spectacular, drinks well priced but wouldn't rush back to eat again

Visited here on 14th June for Sunday lunch. Not our first visit and definitely not our last! The food, as experienced before was above standard, well presented and full of flavour. The bar and waiting staff are professional and friendly and the owners are welcoming every time we visit. The decor of The Vane Arms is bright, airy and imaculately... More

Haven't been here before but will definitely be back soon. We were looking for somewhere different for an early evening dinner and this was perfect! Inside is beautifully set up, a real country pub/ restaurant with quirky touches ( loved the flowers in the wellies)! The staff were really friendly and helpful and there was a real team spirit.

Went to the Vane Arms for Sunday lunch with my family. A bit pricey when you first see the menu but actually great value for the quality of the food. All of our starters were delicious (my chicken livers were mousse like in their consistency and divine). Beef was rare and pink and very tender. The only area for possible... More
