A great find, lovely local ales and a great atmosphere, we sat happily with our drinks and soaked up the ambience.

We visited The Vine Tree for Sunday lunch yesterday at very short notice having been very disappointed by The Neald Arms in Grittleton. The food was delicious and perfectly cooked and the staff could not have been friendlier. It doesn't look much from outside but inside it's warm, cosy and oozes country pub charm. Well worth the visit.

The Vinetree is somewhat off the main road and reached by country lanes. The car park is generously sized with more parking available on the large grassy area. The staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful. food service is swift. The toilets are clean and well serviced. The menu is extensive, the dishes well presented, generous, freshly cooked and enjoyable. Our... More

We had a lovely lunch at the Vine Tree today. Tasty food and well kept beer. The only down side was that the music was too loud where we were sitting upstairs. Otherwise very good.

Having had a light bar lunch there before, we went back to The Vine Tree with a party of seven for Sunday Lunch. There are two occasions when otherwise competent restaurants tend to fall down - with groups of people, and with Sunday lunches. The Vine Tree passed both tests with flying colours. Despite being very busy (as one group... More

We've enjoyed the Vine Tree for several years now, and tend to go when we're in the mood for a good modern British meal or special occasion. I've notice though a steady and subtle decline as their success has risen, and had perhaps my most disappointing meal yet. I don't think ill return. On the plus side, service was friendly... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and like you, we are disappointed that you felt that not everything was up to our usual high standard - I will address your negative remarks first - the Coq au Vin dish (not sure our Head Chef would like the moniker of Cock...!) has become one of our most...

Visited for dinner with friends, food was exceptional, great menu, good selection of wine reasonably priced. Service was very friendly and good. Used Tastecard which made the evening even better value. Will definitely visit again, best Steaks in the area.

Along with my wife and 2 friends - have just spent an extremely enjoyable lunchtime eating at The Vine Tree (close to Malmesbury, Wiltshire) today using my Tastecard. The food was excellent - the staff very friendly. Highly recommended. Will certainly be visiting The Vine Tree again, very soon.
