This was our second visit to The Vine Inn. Pros, lovely restaurant, very clean and cosy. The starters and main courses were all very nice, fantastic portions and timed to perfection. Cons, the desserts weren't worth the prices, they all seemed very defrosted... the staff seemed a little flustered, perhaps they were short staffed that evening but it was very difficult to get anyone's attention.
Overall, very worthy of 4/5. Will be visiting again.

When I first moved to Tenterden my main concern was where my new 'local' would be. There's quite a few pubs to choose from but this is by far the friendliest. Not only do they have two pub quizzes a week, comfy sofas, a lovely big beer garden and delicious burgers but you can also take your dog in the bar. My dog loves it and pulls me in at every opportunity (it is the dog honestly) and knows where to go for the water bowl and who to go to for the dog treats. It's a great place to take little ones and has lots of room. The staff are friendly and not in a 'we are only friendly to locals' way that a lot of places seems to be. I love this place and on cold nights find it very hard to leave! The food is pub grub not gastro pub and that's reflected in the prices. It's a good standard and affordable so it's great for lunches out as well as family gatherings. I'm very pleased to call this place my local.

Great friendly pub. Cosy on a dismal cold day (and we've had plenty of those). Food is very good at lunchtime - excellent paninis. Haven't managed to eat there in the evening yet but fully intend to do so soon. Coffee also good and staff helpful and accommodating. Fire always ticking over nicely. Only tiny grudge is that, occasionally, there are families with one too many whining children who roll and loll over the upholstered seating with shoes on. Not relaxing that one.
Otherwise, well done the Vine!

I have been to the Vine on a number of occasions and wanted to chill out with a few beers and a spot of lunch. The staff were very friendly and chatty, good beer (being a Spitfire drinker) and lunch was very nice and good value. Sat in nice comfy chairs reading my book in a relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone
