Lunch at the Vane arms was superb. Had my grandson with me and a high chair came straight away no fuss. He so enjoyed the wonderful sour dough bread that was brought for him to eat while we decided what to choose from the fabulous menu. Moules was delicious and my husbands sea trout was cooked to perfection. Defiantly going... More

Really enjoyed freshly prepared food and the relaxed atmosphere. Starter salads are interesting and colorful, with beetroot, cheese and dressing. Liked the way the asparagus was prepared (grilled?) for sea trout and new potato dish. Mother-in-law enjoys "plain" food and the fish and chips was just right for her. Liked the way that table had been sorted for her walker.... More

My husband and I along with my mum and auntie visited The Vane Arms last night, we had a table booked for 7pm and the pub was still quite empty. I have never been before but my auntie visits the pub quite often with her friends as they take advantage of the gluten free options. The bar area is separate... More

We were recommended to eat here by the local B&B down the road, Thorpe Thewles Lodge, and would have to say we were not disappointed. Food was excellent and service impeccable. We will definitely be returning for an evening of music next time you have a band on.

Met some friends here and enjoyed the evening, food was good, but limited menu. Visited on a Saturday night and the restaurant was only 1/3 full, shame. Will return.

This was our second visit to The Vane Arms in recent weeks for Sunday lunch and it was every bit as good as the last visit. In fact it was so memorable the first time that when considering somewhere nice to go over the Bank Holiday weekend The Vane Arms was the first place we thought of and decided to... More

A really good little place in a pretty location. We visited on Sunday to celebrate my sisters birthday. As she has only recently moved to the area, we trusted trip advisor for our choice of venue and this did not disappoint. The restaurant/ pub is very tastefully decorated and cosy. The fire place looked as if it had been on,... More

Today proves the value of trip Advisor - we have visited my daughter in an area 100+ miles away and wanted a very traditional Sunday lunch. A search showed The Vane Arms to be popular with a good local reputation - and serving what we were looking for. We were impressed as we walked in, a sympathetically decorated village pub... More

A place we have wanted to visit for some time & we are so pleased we finally got to go. Lovely, relaxed ambience & polite & not pushy service. Though the main attraction is the food, simply splendid. Every morsel was a culinary delight. Looking forward to our next visit already, we have other dishes we want to sample...
