Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Another great meal had here by us all. The rigatoni was very tasty, as were the home made desserts as always which were very reasonably priced and a decent size. Looking forward to our next visit.

Hi, my name is Bops and I have 4 legs, we live locally so I often take my people to the Vine Inn, they have the light bites meals 2 for £12 and enjoy them (they are incredibly mean!) however I have discovered a glass...sweet jar by the bar full of delicious dog biscuits so will keep taking my people there😀 The pub is goodly sized with plenty of tables and is well laid out, the staff ( mostly young ladies) are friendly and helpful, the menu is plentiful and reasonably priced, the bar is well kept and clean. I would highly rate the Vine Inn as a family friendly pub and i notice lots of couples including seniors (like my folk) who pop in for a bite. There is plenty of room for me to lay down to munch their delicious dog biscuits, well done, woof woof 🐕🐕More

The first of a few booked Christmas lunches but so terribly disappointing. The best part of the meal was that the seating was nice and close to the fire. The menu was pre-selected but not one of the six plates was really acceptable. Any pastry...used was like rubber and it was difficult to find any crab meat amongst the potato of the crab cakes. The worst plate was the lamb shank served with only root vegetables. The meat could not be cut with an ordinary knife so a steak knife was requested, but this was as useless. Eventually a cut was made and the meat by the bone was not rare, it was RAW. Not one mouthful was taken. No green vegetables were served with the main and when requested we were told they were not on the menu. Eventually given a bowl of some sort of shredded leek. The waitress took the lamb shank into the kitchen to put in a box so it could be taken home for the dogs and agreed it was impossible to cut. Very generously they gave us a free cup of coffee. Unfortunately this will be our first and last time at The Vine.More

Been to the Vine several times now, and have never been disappointed. We have had the light bite’s which are a smaller version meal, off of the main menu . I have to say that they are larger than expected. We have also had hunters...chicken of the main menu. Lovely meal. The prices have increased a fair bit since last year , but so have most eateries. So we would still recommend giving the Vine a try .More
