“Delicious dessert...!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

Just had a very pleasant meal at The Vineyard. A tasty soup starter was followed by the chicken with parmesan. The dessert was banoffee pie and it was really delicious...highly recommended! The owner (Amy) could not have been more welcoming and the service was prompt and efficient. Many thanks, B :))

“Excellent food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012 via mobile

I've been twice now in last few weeks with family so have had a overall view and can't pick any faults. The food is delicious and cooked well with plenty of veg, the chef deserves credit. The staff are very friendly and pleasant to talk too. The menu is not over complicated with loads of meals and prices are spot on for the quality of the restaurant.

Thank you and most likely to visit again with the family.

“Delightful & Refreshing - A Wonderful Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

We have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions, by ourselves, with family and also with friends and not once have we been disappointed.
Our most recent visit (with family) was no different in quality of food and service to any other occassion and we ate, drank and had a thoroughly delightful afternoon.
In fact, we feel we have discovered a truely delightful Gem in 'The Vineyard'.
It is warm, welcoming with great ambience and hospitality. In fact, is would be safe to say, this is by far one of our favourite restaurants.
The food is always delicious (cooked to perfection) and the staff are attentive and consummate. The menu has a good selection and there are always great choices on the specials board.
The fillet Steak is well recommended and if you love 'Fish' (like us), you'll be spoilt for choice. 
Actually if you love all great food, a warm friendly welcome and a charming atmosphere then this is the restaurant for you.

HUGE Thanks to everyone for always making our visits a truely great experience to remember! 

We will most certainly be returning! A***************

“Poor dining experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

A poor attempt at a la carte dining with a defensive manager/owner who didn't make us feel valued sums up a truly horrid experience. I believe I ordered the most expensive dish on the menu and was staggered when it was delivered to the table. Vegetables cut by a professional? No. Potatoes prepared by a professional? No. And meat ordered as medium cooked correctly? No. Fish to was cooked poorly. The ambience of the venue was interesting. No other diners along with the smell of cigarettes should have told us to leave early. It did but sadly our mains arrived right at the moment we were going to leave. The defensive attitude of the owner surprised me and my partner and I left feeling under valued. Yes the Owner invited us back but we declined. We have eaten in many places around the world but have never experienced a venue like the vineyard. One only hopes the daughter of the owner who seemed interested in our comments ensures our feedback is acted upon.
