Recently ate at The Vine whilst on holiday, after not going there for a few years. It is good honest pub grub, reasonably priced and very tasty. We had the roast dinner which was very well cooked, although not worth upgrading an extra £3.00 for a large one. You only get a very small extra portion of meat.

A roast dinner from the carvery was available but we chose from the main menu, sizzling lamb and burger. All the food was excellent. The food was served promptly and the... More

Rather a dark and enclosed place in need of a complete refurb. Soft rinks are crazy expensive ! Used to be know for it's steaks but no longer, sadly.

We arrived around 7pm to find out they stop serving meals at 7.30pm. We asked to open a tab where they kept my card in the till. Not happy about that at all. We ordered our food fish and home made chips (they were frozen) and a curry. They arrived and the portion sizes were poor asked for mango chutney... More

The pub is a Fuller's house, so the ales are good The menu, whilst limited, has something for most tatses. Both my partner and I had something from the Sizzlers portion of the menu, and the food comes out on a hot skillet and does indeed sizzle! I had the 10oz rump, asked for medium rare and, unusually, actually came... More

We saw this pub on the way to finding a hotel on the Island. We later took a walk down. The Landlord was very friendly and welcoming. He explained that many of the tables were reserved for the pub quiz later on. Our table was fine. Food was lovely. Beer was excellent. We stayed for the quiz and had lots... More

I have lived in Freshwater for 15 years. The Vine Inn is Close to my home and I have eaten there on many occasions in the past with my late wife. Since she passed away the management has changed, not good. However, I have tried to support the new owners by using it on a regular basis with a "mate".... More

This was a traditional pub meal within walking distance of our lodging at Rockstone Cottage. The staff was very friendly and efficient.
