Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

    We came for lunch with two family members and we all had roast beef. Disappointing as the beef was tough and the veg too hard. Also it wasn't very hot. Didn't complain as we didn't want to make our relatives feel uncomfortable who we hadn't been able to see for some time. The desserts were lovely though and the service efficient and all necessary precautions in place. I'm afraid this has put us off from returning there again.

    Food and services excellent up to the point of giving feedback on the sweet, to which the waitress was very unprofessional in her response. Leaving a bitter taste on the whole experience.
