On both occasions we were given a separate room, beautifully decorated by the staff at the Vines with balloons, banners, flowers and fairy lights. On arrival we where greeted by the lovely Brenda with her members of staff who were... More

We eat here often and have never been disappointed. The food is lovely and has good hearty portions! We have 2 young children who are always looked after promptly with toys, crayons etc. Reasonably priced, clean restuarant with friendly staff. Couldn't ask for more :)

The Vines is friendly welcoming restaurant in the centre of Garavagh. Good menu; nice wine list and great service. The Earlybird menu represents great value. Parking is a doddle. What's not to like?! Thoroughly recommended and I eat there with friends and family. Give it a try.
