Dinner with friends

The table we had booked (tucked away ) was somehow not available when we arrived and we were placed right next to the bar. Not a good start when entertaining friends down from London after we had boasted about this lovely place! However, the food was rated good although I have to say not as good... read more

We first went as a group of 5 a couple of months ago and were very impressed with the food. We were looking for an opportunity to return for the same experience. Last night, as a group of 6 we went again, sadly not the same experience. Service was pleasant, but inattentive, It took 40 minutes before our drinks arrived... More

Restaurants are all about consistency and the Vine Tree does not always accomplish this. Recent visit I had the chicken Kiev it is supposed to ooze butter - this one was dry and disappointing. Then there was the very undercooked vegetables why aspiring cooks do this and get it wrong. There is al-dente then there is almost raw these were... More

I do not like sarcastic and uninformed advice on wine, as I have studied and passed the exams, worked in the wine trade for 15 years and visited the most famous wineries and chateaux in Europe. I did not much care for the beer either.

We were fortunate enough to host our wedding at the Vine Tree. Tiggi and Charlie were fantastic, attentive and flexible throughout the whole process. As for the day itself ... Just WOW! The place looked amazing and the staff were phenomenal ... They really got in to the spirit of the day and it made such a difference. As for... More

We visited the Vine Tree for lunch last week. The weather was excellent, so we sat outside. I had scampi and chips, my wife had paella, and we shared some pork crackling with apple sauce. The food was perfectly pleasant, and I had no reason to criticise service; as it was mid-week, the patio wasn't very busy. This pub may... More

We booked for lunch on Sunday 7 June. The staff were very attentive and the Vine Tree has a delightful location with a very nice garden for eating al fresco. Sadly the roast potatoes were almost cold and floury although the pork was excellent. My wife's main course was very poor - squid/octopus so rubbery as to be inedible and... More
