“A great place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

This is a small restaurant but with a big personality.
It has very relaxed atmosphere.
The food is freshly prepared and excellent.
The staff are very enthusiastic and most helpful.
The restaurant is on the first floor with the kitchen visible, and well under control all of the time. and there is a bar and seating area on the ground floor.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Was looking forward to trying Vine Leaf as we had heard good reports sadly this was not to be.. On arrival, no staff present in a very busy bar area for 15mins as they had gone to local shop to buy tonic water!! Once we finally got a drink, chef ran down stairs through bar area to outside shouting "I'm going to break somebody". Food order taken, shown to table 50mins late, I had Chicken Liver Parfait which was the consistency of tomato sauce and tasteless. Main course of Lamb shank looked "boil the the bag" sort. Passed on desert, coffee poor. As we were the last to leave the open kitchen was entertaining as we were able to see the waitress sat on a chest freezer swinging her legs whilst on her mobile phone and the rest of the staff stood round chatting drinking coffee and obviously waiting to go home. Would not return UNPROFESSIONAL AND AMATURIST

“Great value for money! Food great and lovely staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Went to the vine leaf for a birthday celebration. On arrival had drinks in the bar area ...which had a great atmosphere! When we had placed our order we were told by staff there would be slight delay. We had a few drinks at the table and didnt wait too long at all. And anyway, the food was well worth waiting fori! Steaks and lamb were excellent. We will definitely be going back. Top class food, attentive staff and a great cosy atmosphere!
