Service was slow , the restaurant was extreemly drafty and cold and I had to put my coat over my knees !!! The meal was cold and the roasted potatoes were undercooked. As I suggested this place to my two buddies , I was rather embarressed .

We are sorry you weren't warm enough when you visited us - despite our best efforts of seating you by a radiator and an open fire. The building is very old but we always try and maintain a cosy atmosphere so we're sorry you didn't feel this was the case. Had you voiced any issue with the meal on the... More

Ate here Saturday night with my partner, we both had the pan fried jerk chicken which was excellent. Good selection of beers , served by cheerful and efficient staff. Although busy we didn't feel neglected or rushed and plan to return soon.

Visited last night. We booked and sat in the lounge because the restaurant was fully booked. This was a lovely cosy country pub feel. We ordered wine. The wine list wasn't very inspired but was served chilled and an ice cooler provided. The bar man was very helpful and attentive throughout our visit as we're all of the staff that... More

We have been several times and always found it to be quite good. We went a few days ago, the starter was very good but my main course , fish & chips was to say the least pathetic. The piece of fish looked like the tail end, there was virtually no fish, just batter, a shame as it has usually... More

Description
A Traditional English Country Inn & Restaurant...
The Vine Inn is nestled in the heart of the beautiful Clent Hills. A warm welcome awaits for all those who wish to visit a traditional English country pub that offers high quality dining in a relaxed environment.

Our first class menu has been selected to offer a discerning mixture of traditional pub favourites and to specialise in fresh fish and game - our fish dishes constantly change on our specials board while our game pie and organic venison steaks (done in a variety of ways) are popular trademark dishes.

The Vine Inn was first registered as the "Clatterback Water Mill" and what was once the old mill pond is now the garden with a decking area built near to where the water wheel was housed. It was first used as an inn offering home brewed beer, bed and stabling in 1836.
