Great food, beer & price

We ate here on a cold Sunday evening and enjoyed a very good meal with outstanding choice of ales. The food was nothing fancy, but was very tasty, hot and very welcome. the staff were very friendly and provided tasters for the ales if required. Would certainly eat there again.

Fantastic food, the steak is amazing and the portions are huge! Staff is always lovely, the bands that play on Friday night get everyone dancing and the atmosphere becomes electric! I find it hard to believe there's bad reviews about this venue. Yes the entrance to the pub is well monitored on busy nights for very good reasons. As a... More

Went to the Grapevine for Sunday Roast as tempted in by the delicious looking photo's on their facebook page - and it lived up to expectation and was delicious, can't wait to go back and sample more of the menu. Was made to feel very welcome, great atmosphere definitely one to re-visit.

I came on this site to write a review of my experiance of the Grapevine and was shocked to see a few bad reviews I can only think the Grapevine has had a couple of bad weeks as my experience (5 visits for live bands and evening meals) was brilliant. The service was good with friendly staff. The food was... More

A fabulous night out with a group of friends. We enjoyed amazing food even the fussy veggie, the staff could not do enough for us and the live band later had us jumping about all night. Highly recommend. We will be back

We are regulars who come to the Grapevine as a highlight of our cycling trips on many Sundays throughout the year. We went last Sunday, although not cycling, and found that they are only doing a Sunday menu. I really don't understand this and pubs that do it, it seems so inflexible. Many people do not want a full 3... More

We've been to this pub a few times as we have relatives nearby. We love it. The food is good, the service is great and because it's a pub and not a restaurant the beer selection is amazing!
