Stayed at Heathfield campsite and visited the Vine a few times, this is a great pub, great atmosphere, great food and the landlady is really friendly. Felt like locals straight away. Fab!

We ate here a few times as a family and mostly the food was good. We reserved a table as it was peak time and the pub was busy. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Didn't think much to the roasted vegetable pizza but apart from that it was all very good.

Every where else we tried was fully booked, there were spaces here now we know why. The menu sounded really appetising, I had a sizzling steak very nice. Two pies of the day were ham soup with a shoe leather topping. Unfortunately they were served cold and had to be sent back to be heated. The potatoes were odd the... More

The food was freshly prepared well presented. I was told the belly pork was great and my scampi was sufficient. Staff were friendly and accommodating and the four of us had a good time.

The curry, pork belly and lamb rump were very good. Unfortunately the vege lentil chilli was disappointingly bare of veges. My husband described it as a good Dahl. Could have done with a tortilla or similar with it. Also we waited a very long time. Though we had been warned it would be a while. Would eat here again but... More

The burger and chips were really good and very economical. I had a delicious cheesecake after. Everyone in our group was happy with their food; it's not posh and is basic pub food but it's very tasty and it's lack of pretension makes it very appealing. I was very impressed and will return soon. They seem to gave got it... More
