Owners and staff are very friendly. Great food served in a relaxed but timely fashion. We ate there a week earlier in a party of 20. Staff pre-arranged food orders and were very organised on the night. Everyone got hot food at the same time. Good choice of ale and other drinks. Good allergen considerations too.

Absolutely super. Food was delicious and the service great. We sat outdoors on the 'Gin' patio and had the area all to ourselves. Social distancing indoors wasn't an issue as all govt guidelines and precautions have been made by the owners. A very relaxing, enjoyable experience and we'll definitely go back again.

Lovely food, the steaks are to die for, so succulent & tender. First time for a roast dinner which was excellent, the roast potatoes could have been cooked more to brown them & make them crunchy. The service is always spot on & friendly.

What a treat to return to the Vine Inn for a delicious supper! The dining area at the Vine Inn has been carefully reconfigured with the safety of every guest in mind. We felt securely distanced from other guests and had a really delightful evening out. Thank you to everyone at the Vine Inn for a friendly welcome.

Welcomed by Liam, a great host, very friendly. Lovely Gin Bar outside. Inside could do with a freshen up looks and feels very dated specifically the walls (I know they were recently painted.. perhaps some home comforts needs to be added, some local area images, historical images etc? This did not spoil our visit and we had a lovely lunch. Thanks
