A family group, we went this week for a birthday meal, which was very good. The rustic bread balsamic vinegar/olive oil and olives were lovely. The 8oz rump steak was served exactly as requested. The house burger and chicken with pancetta looked very appealing. The pub was fairly quiet and the restaurant was not too busy, with only 3 occupied... More

I'm so pleased we did. from the moment we walked in we were made to feel really welcome. The inside of the pub is really nicely laid... More

Stayed here mid week as had a job interview nearby and didn't want to spend out on an expensive hotel. The Vane Arms is a little gem! Rooms are within a small cottage in the car park area. Our room was a small double. With a little damp it did smell a little musty when we got into bed however... More

Our experience here was tops in every way. The food was simply delicious, and my husband absolutely devoured his gammon steak. My lamb in a packet dish (sadly I did not write down the name) was creative and so tasty. We dined at a cozy table next to an old fireplace with large pennies stuck in the wood. They were... More

We stayed for one night. I can not rate the accommodation enough. Separate living area with fridge. Gorgeous bathroom and comfy bed! Had a beer in the pub before the wedding which was nice. Very friendly and welcoming staff.

Went for Sunday lunch based on previous reviews. Had phoned in advance to check menu as not available via the website and was told that vegetarian options are cooked fresh on the day. These turned out to be lasagne and chips or a salad! Not very inventive! Vegetarians do enjoy a nice roast on a Sunday too! The rest of... More

We went with friends to the Lobster night at the Sudborough Vane Arms restaurant and had a magnificent dinner. Once a month, I am told, they have a "lobster or crab" evening where they prepare a dinner complete with starter, sorbet to cleanse the pallet and the main course. I absolutely love lobster and this month was their lobster feast.... More

The Vane Arms in one word,,,, fabulous. The sunday lunch was fantastic, lovely roast beef, large proper yorkshire puddings, fresh veg cooked correctly and not all mushed up. In my opinion this roast dinner is hard to beat, quality of meat, fresh veg, gravy and also the portion size is very good. The whole experience for me was brilliant, lovely... More
