We found the Vine Cafe by accident the first time we came to Bryher, and actively sought it out the second time. It has a strange charm in part due to the unpretentious atmosphere and the friendly openness of the proprietors and largely due to the fact that their food really is very good! They serve homely hot food that 'granny would be proud of' and not in a bad way. And for such a small enterprise they are surprisingly accommodating with special diets and served me up a delicious dairy and gluten free soup with gluten free bread. I immediately bought 2 pieces of gluten free cake to take away for an afternoon snack, a lemon drizzle style cake and a ginger cake and I have to say they were both absolutely delicious.. We will definately be back!

It's quite something when you have to book well in advance to secure a table on a Sunday evening during peak season ... in a greenhouse! That's the wonderful Vine Cafe which has an almost cult following. The fixed menu is predictable, which adds to the charm. You take your own wine. It's very friendly and everybody chats to each other. The owners are lovely and welcoming and it's good value. The Vine serves lovely teas and coffees during the day and is only open for evening meals certain days of the week so you need to book to be certain to get in on the right evening!

The Vine Cafe typifies what we know and love about Bryher - friendly, quirky, rural, lovely food and huge fun! We'll be booking next year well in advance again!
