Second time in 4 weeks and I'm already arranging the next... really beautiful country pub. Wonderful welcoming by the staff, stunning menu and the food faultless both times. Couldn't recommend this pub highly enough. See you all again soon.

We had roast lunch late Sunday afternoon and the food and atmosphere were fantastic. Totally recommended. It was also one of our party birthday and the staff went well out of their way to make her feel special with her name on the menus, birthday fun confetti on the table and a surprise pud. LOVED it!

Popped in for lunch on 9th November. Only one other table occupied. Took quite a while for the brand new member of staff to take our order. Breadboard was ok, warm tomato chutney was very very garlicky and had huge lump of tomato core in it, couple of plates would have been nice. Table clearing took ages. Main courses, 1... More

I've been here many times, with family, friends and for a romantic evening. It's a cosy country pub, with an excellent menu, which never ceases to delight. Service is always great, very welcoming and friendly. Definitely should be on your list of places to try, and make sure you save room for dessert!

Our Supper Club went off to the Vine Tree this month as it was Grampy & Granma's choice of venue. The old couple chose well. A nice roaring wood fire greeted us upon arrival on a chilly evening, closely followed by a lovely selection of Gin offered at the bar. They seem to like their Gin at the Vine Tree... More

We ate here last Sunday, very friendly staff, we ordered roast dinners at I think about £16.00, which isn't cheap, the food came very quickly, and looked very good, but the issue was that it was only warm and had to be eaten quickly, I have to say the meat was superb and lovely fresh veg, so all in all...

We visited this evening the food was the best I have had locally. I would recommend this pub to anyone. The service was quick and the staff were polite. Open fire going felt super cosy and they have an amazing outdoor area I will be back in the summer to make the most of the quiet beer garden. The meat... More

Heading East to West along M4 we researched Trip Advisor for a good local inn, not far from the motorway and chose The Vine Tree. We were not disappointed. The service was very friendly and prompt. A lovely cosy atmosphere with roaring fire, good pint of local ale and great food. All were very happy and I thoroughly recommend a... More
