We had a lovely evening on Friday 14th November at the annual Wine Festival Dinner. It was a fantastic five course dinner matched with two superb wines per course. From arrival to departure we were well looked after and the food could not be faulted. The venue is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to come back and sample the... More

Had a long Sunday lunch here yesterday. We were greeted warmly by the staff and shown to very nice table. The Sunday lunch 3 courses for £30 was very good value, though not all aspects of the meal were quite up to par: the amuse bouche lacked the intensity of flavour that an amuse bouche should provide. Starters: the lobster... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your recent lunch experience. I’m pleased you enjoyed most of your courses, but I was sorry to read that the roast potatoes weren’t hot enough and you were not entirely happy with the bread and amuse bouche. I hope this will not put you off visiting us again and... More

First Impressions The Vineyard at Stockcross is located in the delightful Berkshire countryside on the outskirts of Newbury. Walking towards the entrance here you will see the gas-powered flames and bubbling water feature that certainly give this fine hotel and Michelin star restaurant a touch of class. Inside the class flows with varnish and shag pile and the lobby is... More

My dinner was very nice, foie gras/apples/pears/bread chips, scallops/jerusalem artichocks/truffle, pork belly and loin/celeriac/pears/foie gras cromesqui, fig dessert, very nice bread (campagne, lemon, corn), very nice wine from California. Perfect service, warm, professional but not too fancy.

We visited on a Friday evening at late notice. We were staying in Newbury and looking for somewhere good. Well look nowhere further. What a place!

Ina recent review, I expressed my disappointment with a lunch at the Vineyard that failed (by some way) to live up to expectations. Slightly to my surprise, I was subsequently contacted by the Restaurant Manager, Pino, who not only accepted the fairness of my views but asked my party of four to return as his guests. This we did yesterday... More

We went with a group of 8 and were forced to order off the fixed menu rather than the regular menu service, so I probably can't rate the restaurant as a whole. The fixed menu only gives you a choice of three items. Also this was a mid week dinner with very few diners. Don't know why they were not... More

We're foodies and we loved the Vineyard. We had a discount coupon which softened the financial blow, but we had always wanted to go anyway but often difficult to get a short-notice booking. This is a lovely building, melding old with modern. The wine cave inside is spectacular, the service truly exemplary and in good humour - no stuffiness here.... More
