We have visited The Vines many times as our Skydiving Club is located on the outskirts of the village so it is handy for an evening meal.

We went there after a long day of hiking, and had a pleasant evening. The food was good and quite filling, dessert was excellent. We also had a bottle of a very nice Chile wine that I would love to taste again. On the top of that prices were rather low. Good place to go to !

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

I see you are up to your old tricks again Monica S. Anything for free food eh??? Do you not get embarrassed telling lies and scrounging food?? I saw you doing this before at a different restaurant.
