I visited the Grapevine tonight and thought the food was really good and very good value. However, the service was not so good. We had a table for two booked and when we entered the lady could not find our reservation as the person who took the order had completely misinterpreted the spelling of the name on the booking. It...

We were given a table by the door which was cold as other diners kept leaving the door ahar. We asked to move to the (empty) back of the restaurant but were told this wasn't possible due to bookings! For the remainder of our visit my husband and the gentleman beside us had to keep getting up to close the... More

The grapevine is in a brilliant location, perfect for a night out . The food was very good and the wine was excellent! ! The atmosphere was brilliant the night we were there, packed house so you should make a reservation. Try to get a seat at the window.

Loved this place! Got the prawns, calamari, venison casserole and a caprese salad. All were really delicious and full of flavour. The atmosphere is a little more lively than you'd find in a formal restaurant which some people might not like I thought it was great. The craft cider was the best I've ever tasted. We'll definitely be back and... More

This place does delicious tapas and there's a great atmosphere. It can be a bit claustrophobic but is worth it for the food and buzz

For a friends birthday we dined here and we were really happy. The wine was great and they serve the Spanish beer San Miguel on draft which is delicious. They food was lovely and just the right amount to be satisfied and not overly full. We shared about 7 or 8 Tapa's, had a bottle of wine and two beers... More

A group of 5 ladies sat down on Friday evening for a meal...what did we get? A fantastic evening of great food, brilliant atmosphere and superb service. So well priced, all dishes were served hot and well thought out. While some of the tapas may not be totally inspired by Spanish tapas it does not take away from the lovely... More

Had an amazing tapas dinner here. Big portions,5 tapas for two was too big for us but I'm sure others will b able to finish it:-) Apart from the food,the music was nice,the atmosphere too,very quiet and private. No desert needed as the waiter was eyecandy all the way through dinner;-) Overall,a great place to chill while you dine!!!!
