Found this pub on the internet. No food, but what a friendly welcome and experience. When we said we travelled 40 miles to try their beers, we got a personal guided tour of their little brewery on the premises. Oliver's beers are excellent, the Grapefruit...More

Trying hard with the vine.... Great range of ales especially the porter, loads of gins and friendly staff. The pub has been described by others on here so it's an old Inn as are the seats etc which is fine. What really let's it down...More

We'd checked out the menu before we booked a table for 4 one evening but when we came to order, none of our choices were available! I could have accepted that perhaps one or two items on the menu were no longer available but all...More

Hi Jackie, Really sorry, but I believe you have reviewed the wrong Vine. We don’t do meals or anything here, we just sell beer and crisps! Thanks, Chris

Absolutely fantastic pub with an amazing selection of beers and spirits!, the pub has a beautiful open fire for when the weather is a little frosty out and the rooms are lovely and cosy :). Great beer garden and jukebox, highly recommended!

The Vine may be a little ragged at the edges but it probably has the best cellar of any pub in Rugeley. Ask for a G&T and you're in for a beautifully presented treat. Defo the best in Rugeley.

Charming little pub with a memorable atmosphere! Staff were very knowledgeable about such a wide selection of beverages! Lots of different beers (cask - the vanilla Porter is great!, keg and craft cans/bottles), as well as their own spirits which are great - especially the...More
