Very friendly staff! We were made to feel extremely welcome as we visited after a long walk with 3 children and our little dog. Reasonably priced drinks and snacks available and a large selection along with a few free dog treats. A member of staff came out of her way to comment on how well behaved my children were and...

The staff were kind a friendly. With live sports on and amazing decoration. The price was low and resonable. It was a very kind and lovely pub. It is just amazing.

I have eaten at the Vine numerous times over the past few months and haven't been disappointed. The vegetarian/vegan specials are always fantastic. The stuffed marrow in particular was delicious as vast the vegetable bolognase. The staff are always friendly and polite too!

Very welcoming, lovely staff, great atmosphere. My mum lives in West Wight and only 2 minutes away from this lovely pub, yet never been in. My husband and I went for a drink together on a sunny afternoon and loved the sun-trap of a front pub garden which was stunning, we decided to come back the following evening for his... More

We had seen this pub several times as we drove past and spotted a board advertising a carvery on the nights we still left on holiday. We went and were pleasantly surprised. It is only a small pub, used mainly by locals imagine but we received a warm welcome. We were allowed to use a table for 6 that was... More

We had dinner at the Vine Inn our first night in Isle of Wight. Food was delicious. Recommend "the carvery" where they offer 2 types of roast meat, with all the trimmings - yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes (stellar!), roast vegetables. There are two sizes (amount of meat varies), and we both had the small and there was loads of meat.... More

We arrived for 7.30 to find that our reserved table had been overlooked. We were quickly found a table (for 5) in a separate buffet room. Not ideal but ok. Within minutes we were offered the opportunity of a table in the main bar/lounge area which we accepted. When I went to the bar for a round of drinks they... More
