This little pub is big on character. Beams and log fires. Lovely staff and really good food and service. Fantastic selection of Gins

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.

We stumbled across this country pub on a walk and were so enamoured that we came back for supper. The landlord and lady were very friendly and really set the tone for a wonderful country pub of the proper sort - proud of the local area and produce and definitely dog (and horse!) friendly. The menu options were gloriously described... More

Ate here with work colleagues on business and the food is simply fantastic. I had the fillet steak and it was one of the best I've had anywhere, a real melt in the mouth experience. My colleagues had mussels and they have really enjoyed them. Overall a truly indulgent and fantastic dining experience in an idyllic rural location.

We were recommended to come here by a friend who lives locally. We were driving past en route to Exeter. So pleased we stopped here. Soaked up the glorious sunshine and had lovely fresh cooked food. Veggie paella was good. Kids fish and chips was lovely and well priced. Would love to come back and work my way through their... More

We had an excellent evening at the Vine Tree to celebrate a birthday. The dinner was delicious as usual, and nothing was too much trouble, even when a few more than expected turned up for dinner. The pub supplied a delicious home made birthday cake. Tiggi and Charlie run a very slick operation and it is our favourite place to... More

Recently attended my daughter's wedding reception at The Vine Tree. Staff were wonderfully attentive, food was perfect and the whole ambiance added to the occasion. We are very grateful to all the team at the Vine Tree for making a special day even more so
