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

I have waited a week to hear the comments from my party. The only variation was in the spelling. Excellent to excelant. I must say that this place... More

I had the elderflower cordial with soda water too which is also home made. Great selections of gin too. I had... More

Visited mid week, a party of four, lovely welcome from bar staff, white wine £4:70, cappuccino £3:25,(a nice bean), fosters £3:33, rose £3:75. The décor, was a little strange, wooden floors, tables & chairs, brick walls & then garish wallpaper on fire breasts, it just looked unfinished. We were seated & ordered our food, the owner was very pleasant &... More
