The waitress was absolutely brilliant, very knowledgeable and professional.
The Vine provided a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The staff were pleasant and efficient.
This was a lovely, homely restaurant. The food choice was limited but sufficient. The service was very good, very helpful staff. The food was nice but could have been hotter for me. Overall good experience though.
Excellent - The restaurant wasn't busy when we arrived but soon filled up. The quality of the food was excellent which is one of the reasons why we regularly return. My daughter always orders the calamari which never disappoints. The chef was happy to make up the starter of calamari as a main course. Service was friendly and timely. The only disappointment was that the coffee machine was on the blink - so no coffees today. I like the features of the original building and the extensions have been added sympathetically. I should add that I am slightly biased since this establishment used to be run by my grandparents in the 1940's
We were made very welcome after booking a table for Sunday lunch. The meal was excellent, cooked to perfection. All three of us felt that there could have been more vegetables between us, but otherwise very satisfactory. We had a pudding each, which was extremely good. Our meal consisted of three lamb shanks, two crumbles and one chocolate brownie. We have visited the Vine before and we found the service good on both occasions, the staff being friendly and polite. We shall most certainly visit again.
Very enjoyable evening good food with good company
Beautiful place, fantastic food and service
The restaurant itself was a nice relaxing environment however the rest of the experience was below standard unfortunately. We visited on a Sunday evening at 6 30pm. We quickly decided what we wanted to eat and ordered at the bar. At 7.45pm our food finally appeared. I would have understood if the restaurant was full but it was only around 50% occupied so the reason for the long wait for food can only but put down to lack of staff. When our food finally arrived - only 3 out of the 6 meals were of satisfactory standard. The 3 meals that weren't were all hunters chicken which was severely overcooked. If it wasn't for extreme hunger the dishes would have been sent back to the kitchen but as it was the members of my party ate the meal as they were starving. Overall not a good experience I'm sorry to say
Lunch here was very good as usual, although we only had a main course so can't comment on starters or puds but there was a really good choice and the roasts we had were delicious, but the lamb shank was rather small. Nice welcome greeting from the manager, and our waitress was very pleasant and efficient.
Excellent good value
