Vegetables under cooked and badly prepared. Steak was very poor value for money at £21.50. Drinks over priced at £3.80 for a pint of... More

Me and my husband have visited The Vane arms on quite a few occasions and when we received an email from the owner Tom, saying that they were going to start serving brunch (starting today), I emailed him back to ask if we should book a table or just turn up - we booked and I'm glad we did!

Couldn't get in anywhere for a Saturday night dinner so decided to go here, will definitely be going back. Excellent food and service. The menu is quite simple but there were 3-4 specials on the board too.

We have visited this restaurant several times as a couple and special occasions and have never been disappointed. The standard of service and the food is definitely to fine dining standard. The owners and staff make sure that everyone has a top quality and pleasant experience. The fish and chips are amazing and the Irish coffees aren't bad either.

Staff really welcoming and friendly. Good menu cooked to your liking. Sensible portion size and average prices - what more could anyone want? Do try it but probably better to book though not usually full midweek.

This is my 4th visit to this friendly pub/restaurant and as always we were warmly greeted by staff and the fires ensured a cosy atmosphere. I chose the fish pie which was the best I have had in a long long time. It came with roast vegetables, which were very nice, but personally I would have preferred fresh peas! The... More

When you arrive at this beautiful little gem, there is always a warm welcome from Tom and the staff. We have eaten here quite a few times and have never been disappointed with the quality of food. Lots of lovely wines on offer as well. We would highly recommend a visit😊
