Quick lunch

Been here a couple of times now, always after taking a long walk through the forest close by. Had the all day fry up and it was fast, tasty and big. What more could you want! Will definitely be back!

I have eaten at The Vines on several occassions over the past few months. The service and food is always top class and the premises is clean and tidy. I highly recommend the Steak Burger - one of the best I have ever had.

Went here for a quick bite to eat and got a chicken fillet burger and chips with curry dip. Chicken fillet burger was massive and so tasty! Chips were nice and curry dip was ok. Staff were friendly and the place is well designed and laid out. For a small town it's a cracking find

So glad we did, we both took the chicken dish with pepper sauce the chicken was massive and the champ was equally as big, tasted even better. great size portion for the price (Sunday lunch) would definitely recommend and would stop...

Because from Castlerock to Derry is long enough we decided to eat somewhere where we have never been. The choice was The Vines. For our unfortunates. As we arrived our table was prepared. We sat and we wait for... More
