Moving up my favourites list

Always thought The Vine Tree was good BUT it is steadily moving up my favourites list. Last night I had the salt and peppered squid it was crunchy coated and perfectly cooked followed quickly (food does come quickly here) by the Coq au Vin for some reason not often seen these days. Both were... read more

Great food at the Vine Tree. The restaurant was busy despite it being a Tuesday lunchtime and the weather throwing hailstones down outside. I would definitely recommend the food and service. Staff were very attentive and food was piping hot and delicious.

We took my elderly mother and Aunt to lunch on Mothering Sunday as The Vine Tree is a long standing family favourite. We were all greeted by Tiggi as we arrived with a large smile and made to feel a million dollars! The food was outstanding and the service excellent despite the pub being amazingly busy due to the special... More

We have visited the Vine Tree many times and have always had a enjoyable and good meal. This time we booked for lunch on Mother's day, it very busy and crammed in, food as always is very good. This time however service was below their normal standard (which was due to being very busy) and being asked to leave as... More

We went to a Mothering Sunday Lunch and the food was very good, although a little expensive for a Sunday Roast. Good selection of Starters- Charcuterie, Squid, Crab etc Mains were nicely prepared and tasty, though a little tight on the potatoes and veggies. Excellent range of puddings and good cheeseboard- All in all well worth a visit. Couldn't comment... More

We are genuinely delighted that you enjoyed your Sunday lunch here with friends and the Sharing Boards in particular - always a popular choice! We regularly cater for large numbers of happy diners on a Sunday lunchtime and our small, passionate dedicated kitchen team cook each dish fresh to order so inevitably during busy periods there may be a slight...

We had not eaten here for some years but with such consistently good reviews we looked forward to an excellent meal. Two out of our party of three had seafood spaghetti as a starter. We complained at the time that the pasta was completely overcooked and this course was credited without fuss. But the 2 of us who had eaten... More

Thank you for taking the trouble to post this review but I have to question its validity, accuracy and also the possible time lag since you actually came to The Vine Tree and ate the aforementioned unfortunate "seafood spaghetti" - my reasons for saying this are simply as follows - we keep all of our menus for reference and I...

Food always good, great selection of wines and if you like gin, there are more than half a dozen to choose from including a Gordon's sloe gin. Great welcome for all including dogs. Have never been disappointed !!

food great, staff great, wine great, only downside is rather pricey for the amount you get, apart from that this is highly recommended.

Wanted to celebrate our 26th year together so decided we would book a table at the pub/resturant on the recommendation of friends. Glad we did. Lovely warm welcome from the staff even though the bar area was jam packed with a group of people who been "trekking" for the day. Shown to a small area upstairs as the owners didn't... More
