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

Have had lunch and dinner here on separate occasions. The same attentive service and very good home cooking. Very good value for money.

I visited here on Saturday night with my wife and two friends and we were all pleasantly surprised at both the quality of food and standard of service. Having never visited before we found that the place was absolutely packed and there was a fantastic atmosphere about. The staff were excellent and encouraged us to taste both the real ales... More

Firstly I would like to say that the meat that accompanied the Sunday lunch was perfect. The reason I started with that is because I really don't like to be negative about local eateries! But unfortunately this failed to make up for the rest of our visit. Considering it is a small pub the service was slow and the waiters... More

Ate at the Vane Arms for the first time this week. Must say it was very impressive. A cut and a half above most restaurants on Teesside. An interesting menu, friendly greetings the moment you walk in and food that bespeaks both imagination and attention to detail. Chicken liver pate and the bread were to die for then profuse apologies... More

Can't fault this place. We visited for a family birthday and had a table for 5. The service is always warm, friendly and efficient. The varied selection of drinks and food is impressive. The carefully selected specials board means you'll never get bored of going. The fish platter on the starter menu is probably one of the highlights, you won't... More

Been to this place about 5 times since my last review here and we have not had a bad meal. We have taken friends here too who have all been equally impressed. Unlike the Smiths who cant seem to cope with guests, the Vane arms have never let us down. Nice starters, a great lamb dinner and some nice cheese... More

Went here with family for a saturday lunch and it was the first time that I'd even heard of the place. Very, very impressed. The decor and atmosphere in the place was brilliant. No annoying piped music, warm and cosy on a rainy afternoon and a welcoming "Hello" from the staff as soon as we walked in. The menu is... More
