We discovered The Vine after going for a walk from our accommodation I ordered Ham Egg and Sautéd potatoes which was excellent and my husband had lamb tagine which was equally excellent and different from run of the mill pub grub. The prices were good and the staff were very friendly to us and our two Labradors giving them treats.... More

We had one bar meal here. It was fish and chips. Given the size of the portions, it was a very good value meal. But the pub itself is a bit shabby and has a "low rent" appearance inside. But the staff were very friendly and the food is comparatively cheap.

The carvery finishes at 3pm but there was a great selection available on the regular menu. Good pub food at great prices. Will definitely return and... More

Just got back to Portsmouth after spending a weekend on the island and stayed just down the road to this pub so thought we'd use it. The first night we were being told by the staff to keep the noise down "whilst spending lots of money here" we were just having a laugh, not too rowdy, that was our Friday.... More

Well the title of your review says it all,of course we don't want people eating fish and chips from the chip shop in our garden and you as a supposed ex-landlord should know that. Regarding being told to keep the noise down by our staff,we have worked very hard over the last four years to make the Vine Inn a... More

The place looks very grubby with sticky tables and a dirty threadbare carpet. It really needs updating. The lighting is very dim and the pub is not very welcoming. My steak was so undercooked I had to send it back but when it came back my partner had almost finished his meal. The steak was of excellent quality but the... More

Three adukts went for an evening meal at the Vine. First impression and we nearly left straight away- thank God we chose to stay. The surroundings and decor could do with updating but these are really insiginificant when you get to the real reason you are there: the food. Fantastic value for money, the portions were generous and the 'sizzler'... More

Good food, great beer battered onion rings, lamb steak sizzler, veggie burger. wanted rum and raisin bread and butter pud; no room left! Little pricier than I'd expect but otherwise excellent.
