My husband and I are staying in Freshwater for the weekend. We went to The Vine Inn for dinner on our first night. I accidentally knocked over my drink and the staff immediately moved us to a new table, brought me a towel and a replacement drink on the house. Lovely friendly service and the food was good too. I... More

Visited here based on trip advisors reviews, the service was friendly although the servers should know the menu and when questioned said I don't know, food was good when arrived, pub good if you want a reasonable meal at a good price. One great addition was board games.

We had been recommended a restaurant in Yarmouth and were actually waiting for the bus when we decided it was daft going when there was a pub nearby. We were not disappointed! The food was delicious, the staff helpful and very friendly and all great value. We went 3 nights running and were not disappointed.

We visited one evening for dinner having booked ahead & requested a table away from any other potential doggie visitors as one of our dogs isn't the most sociable with other dogs. Our table was "reserved" with our name on it when we arrived so we knew it was ours straight away. We ordered food at the bar and were... More

We chose the Vine as they would accept a dog & children. We ate around 6pm in the small garden. Very friendly staff and tasty food.

Ordered sandwiches, bread was stale, side salad totally wilted and unstable. Really disappointed. Table not clean. There was free parking and chairs with tables outside.
