Very pleasant. It was a Monday lunchtime and we were the only ones in the restaurant. The food was good. My only complaint is that I had to get up to look for the waiter to ask for the dessert menu when we had finished out main course and been sitting for a while.

This restaurant is very local to us so we thought we would give it a try. Booked for early evening. It has a nice bar area and spacious restaurant. The food, service and help to choose from a variable menu excellent. Would recommend for a very ambient and romantic dinner at a reasonable cost.

Linden House is a little gem in a small village that has other options for food and drink but not in the same league. The service was good, the food was excellent, the wine very good. The restaurant is well laid out for a good atmosphere but enough privacy between tables and my wife, child and I had a lovely... More

We visited The Vine for the first time courtesy of a Travelzoo voucher and were more than impressed by our delicious lunch. We shared the fish platter as a starter, followed by sirloin steak (him) and hake (her). All three dishes were excellent, beautifully presented and delicious. A trio of mini desserts rounded off the meal; each was scrumptious and... More

We braved The Vine after being burnt twice at Linden House under its previous management. The hotel and restaurant itself is lovely, and hasn't seen any major changes in terms of decoration. Admittedly we were on tenterhooks after our previous experiences but we willing to try having heard good things from others. Sadly, we were underwhelmed. On being led to... More

The ambiance and surroundings were good. The service was excellent, my only problem was the menu. I like pretty everything foodwise (except parsnips and beetroot) but I struggled to find a main course that I fancied. That said the food that I had (a shared platter and a large starter) was excellent.

Bank holiday Monday lunchtime the young girl couldn't wait to leave The other lady apparently only does breakfast and knew nothing about food, drink or SERVICE !! You need to sort your front of house out.... explain to your staff if you don't want to be hospitable leave hospitality and work for the council

We needed somewhere to stay and eat, not too far from Stansted airport. This hotel and its restaurant greatly exceeded expectations. It would be a great place to spend a whole week, unlike just about every other hotel in the world close to an airport. The food was excellent - creative, imaginative, and just plain good to eat. The wine... More

We recently used Linden House for our venue for my parents 50th Wedding anniversary celebration, after renewing their vows at Tilty Church. The beautiful Linden house had a a private dining room for us to celebrate. The food was fantastic - as was the service. The staff made us - and more importantly - my parents feel very very special.... More
