We had the tasting menu with the matching wine flight and it was impressive to say the least. Chef Daniel Galmiche visited our table at the end of the meal to check everything was OK, and I was pleased to tell him the smoked oxtail was probably one of the best meals I've ever had. Brilliant elegant and beautiful, I... More

Came here on a corporate jolly and was concerned when I saw the restaurant was French as they are notoriously bad for veggies. I was surprised and delighted by the meal - it felt as if as much effort had gone into my meal as the meal enjoyed by the meat eaters (which is not always my impression!). In fact... More

We were treated to a fabulous evening, four courses of exceptional food matched perfectly with wine choices from the sommelier. We were looked after all evening by the very charming Dmitrij. The evening was completed with a visit to our table from Daniel Galmiche, celebrity chef. I can't wait for a return visit.

We had our corporate Christmas party at the Vineyard on the 28th and upon arriving at the fantastically kept 'old world' building we were greeted with champagne in the California bar, where some amazing pieces of historical art were on display for all to see. Shortly after we moved into the dining area where we were seated and tended to... More

I recently attended a work's Christmas party at the Vineyard and it was fantastic. The venue itself is beautiful, the pool with the fire pits looked great in the evening and the glass floor over the wine cellar was very cool, if a little worrying in heels! The Christmas meal that they served was delicious, ideal sized portions and the... More

Lunched here the other Sunday as we could not get in on the Saturday evening due to a wine festival.

We previously went to the Vineyard in July 2012 and the quality did not quite justify the cost. As a result we stayed away until this weekend. We heard the chef had changed (probably some time ago!) so thought we would try it again. What a lunch! The cost was very reasonable - 3 course Sunday lunch for £39 and... 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.
