“Vines fine”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We had a meal here on our tour of Ireland at the recommendation of our B & B. We turned up on a Saturday night without a reservation (though our B & B hostess did ring about 15 minutes beforehand). There was no difficulty in getting in - it was busy but not out of control.
The servings are large, the service was very good, the wine list was small but quaffable. Our food was good - taste, presentation, cooking - all good. We'd eat there again if we were in the area without hesitation.

“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Had meal at The Vines on Sunday evening with family, thouroughly enjoyable experience. The food was delicious, had the goats cheese to start followed by the chicken melt with salt n chilli chips. As the portions were generous I skipped on dessert but the rest of the group indulged and they were all impressed with them and must say the looked great. Service was friendly and prompt, alway an added bonus. Good value for money and will def be back.

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Visited the vines before when it had just opened! So glad to see that it is still as good as ever, it's good to see a place being so consistant for so long as this rarely happens! Good varied menu and only a short wait, which is understandable on a busy Saturday night. Reasonable enough prices , although food worth every penny. It's good to see a family run business make such an effort with customers as the lady owner approached us to ask was everything ok with our meal and her son served us our mains!! Keep up the good work. A credit to the owners. The people of garvagh should be proud.

“Beautiful food”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Had lunch today and can't fault the restaurant in any way. . . staff were excellent, quick service and very friendly. Beautiful decor . . Most importantly, the food was fantastic; good portions, reasonable price. . ; and for the fussier diners in my company, they were allowed to order off the evening menu to ensure they enjoyed their meal. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

“Good food and kind people”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

The food at The Vines is very good, and the staff are very kind. One woman, I think she might have been the owner, even offered to take us back to our B&B if we needed a ride. My husband and I are both vegetarian, and there are actually options here. That's a real find in Ireland!
