3rd visit and very impressed yet again, the staff all very friendly and helpful. We were served very quickley and not kept waiting even though the restaurant was full, all the staff were very calm and not stress and serving to the highest standard. Menu choice is fantastic, and being there on my parents birthday, the chef decorated her dessert plate with chocolate happy birthday for that very special touch. Car'nt wait to see the future plans for Vines and becoming a hotel, because the standards are already high.

The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because I felt the decor and atmosphere could have been a little warmer with more things on the walls etc to break up the plain look, however the food was excellent, by girlfriend had, in her words, a tremendous steak, I had the venison, so tasty, the presentation was superb and the staff very helpful.

Just been out to Vines Restaurant at Barton Hall. Wot a load of rubbish. Stale bread, cold veg, under cooked burger, awful tasting chips, small portions, overpriced for what you get. We wont be going there again ! It was better food served there when it was a care home for the elderly ! You expect good food when the surroundings are lovely.

Just got back from holiday and thought we would try the Vines at Barton Hall.

The building is impressive, and the

Sunday lunch was very good value for three course, the food was ok, not exceptional, a little disappointing for me, we both had a starter of leek and potato soup, very thin with the potato in cubes rather than being used to thicken the soup, bread was hard with not butter.
I had beef which was very pink and my partner has pork which was also pinkish, the parsnips were over cooked and the cauliflower in cheese was just a soggy mash, not very nice, the sweet was a delight panna cotta with rhubarb.

Staff were attentive, but there was an awful wait after being seated and the first course and in between courses, just to long to be noticeable.

That all said the restaurant was packed and I would have thought you must telephone for a table

would I go back yes, but would hope for an improvment.

Have just enjoyed another excellent Sunday lunch at the Vines.
Good hot food , a good choice of starters , main courses and deserts - 3 courses for just £19 95
We have already rebooked .

I really cannot see why some folks are grumbling - it is good value for money
The staff were attentive even though the restaurant was full
