Good food, decent beer

We had a meal here on a Monday night, where to start with it was fairly quiet but the place soon got busy. There were good menu choices, the service was very good, and there were decent beers on. Ticked all the boxes!

An excellent choice of local real ales and good quality and interesting food. The staff are very friendly in this great little corner pub, it doesn't look great from the outside but don't be put off by that, this is truly a gem of a gastro pub, but without any of the pretentiousness

The Grapevine is the best pub in town. A warm welcome, brilliant selection of ales, great live music and truly tasty food. It's my choice for a great night out, lunch or any other occasion.

We cycled here from Exeter and booked a table via FB. The vegetable rogan josh was excellent and the Dahl was really exceptional (lots of flavours). Good selection of real ale which was well kept too.

love the atmosphere, the eclectic mix of people, the good ales and wines, but I am getting very, very bored with the same old menu

We visited the Grapevine for a Mothering Sunday roast dinner and were not disappointed. We have eaten there several times before and have never had a bad experience; nevertheless I was still surprised by the high quality of the roast dinner which was more like something lovingly prepared at home and unbelievably good value. Pork and Beef were both on... More

The atmosphere was fun and friendly and I am looking... More

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
