Some good food options and good price of 2 for £10. However, plates were relatively small and pretty basic foods available from those choices. The hand pulls weren't working when we were there which was a shame. The pub quiz was good and challenging and worth visiting for.

I used to work in the pub game and was paid (believe it or not) a fair old whack to travel round thousands of pubs and write nice things about them. I'm glad to write nice things about The Vine, and even had to pay to do so. What a lovely boozer. The Vine occupies a time warp in the... More

We were holidaying in the area and popped in with a friend. The menu choice was from the specials board and, was excellent. The barmaid and other staff were very friendly and attentive. The bar was dog friendly and the staff made them welcome too and gave them treats. We would certainly return. Cannot believe the poor reviews!

Called into The Vine and noticed a board outside saying " Due to staff shortages, limited menu until 1st November, 2014. Enquired at the bar and was told "No Staff" so what you see on the board is what you get. Decided not to stay. Not very welcoming at all - it was half term week !!

After a long cycle we finally found a pub in Freshwater! The Barman couldn't have been more helpful and the beer was well kept and very welcome. Typical pub grub that was well presented and tasted just fine. Enjoyed our visit and would return without hesitation.

What a great pub! Popped in for lunch and had a great 2 for £10 meal. Particularly good was the beer battered cod on crushed new potatoes and minted peas, great attention to detail, staff great and would highly recommend :))

My family and I visited this pub for a bite to eat and a drink. Well what could we say. I've never been somewhere so soulless and lacking in atmosphere!!!! No music,locals looking bored out of their minds,limited choice of spirits,dirty glasses. The tall blond bar maid seemed not to have a kind word to say about any one &... More

Greatly impressed at this village local. Came in for a drink but probably overstayed the welcome as we ended up having a great meal. The sizzling platters looked very exciting and unusual as neither of us had seen them before, tasted great and cooked to perfection, nothing about this meal that wasn't delicious. The puddings looked great, the rare and... More

Lovely staff welcomed us in. Good atmosphere and some great locals. Food was amazing. Best create your own burger I have ever had! (I eat a lot of burgers) reasonably priced. Can't wait to go back again
