Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Booked a table before we got to Stow Glad we did as it was busy.The Vine Leaf is only small but very popular.The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.We had the baked chicken dish and it was cooked to perfection.We would use this place again.

“RUDE WAITRESS”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We were looking for somewhere to have a nice breakfast and just happened to come across The Vine Leaf. We saw the good rating by Tripadvisor in the window and went in. We were, to say the least, very taken aback by the rude and abrupt manner of the waitress! We could not fault the food but because of the impatience of the waitress we will not be returning.

lindsey m, Owner at The Vine Leaf, responded to this review, July 17, 2013
Thankyou for taking the time to write this review. I am sorry that you have not replied to my private email, giving me a better chance to understand when you visited.
On a positive note i am glad you enjoyed your breakfasts. In regards to service please let me apologise. I am sorry we fell short of delivering good service on your visit. We do try to always give a 110 % with all our guests and regrettably on this occasion we seem to have fallen extremely short of your expectations and by the sounds of it i let myself and the business down.

I do hope you will give us another try, as you can see from many other reviews they find our service to be friendly and courteous. (regrettably i must have been having a very bad morning)

Kind regards and apologies
Lindsey

“Excellent.”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

My wife & I went on 'a spur of the moment decision' & it was the best decision we made.

From the moment we walked the service was excellent. The staff were very friendly & pleasant asking us if everything was ok throughout each course. Wonderful service!

The food matched the service & was brilliant. The Prawns in sweat chilly saurce is a must try.

We will be returning.

“a great spot - tucked away neatly”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Good food, a nice glass of wine, friendly but unobtrusive service, a lovely table in the sun, just what we needed after a long drive.
