We enjoyed a lovely 3 course valentines meal. We both chose the steak which melted in the mouth. Each course was excellent and we will definitely be returning - very soon!

I booked a table for Friday evening for myself and visiting relatives. I have visited the Winery on many occasions and loved the ambiance and surroundings. I booked our table for 7pm, arrived 5 mins early and was asked if we would like to get a drink and we would be shown to our table, 30 mins had passed and... More

We had Sunday lunch here to celebrate my husband's birthday. The setting is lovely and the decor and ambience very attractive. All four of us enjoyed our meals very much: ideally we felt there should be two vegetarian options in a fixed price menu, but otherwise the choice was very good, and the food was well-cooked, generous and tasty. Very... More

Went here for a drink and dinner. Didn't buy dinner in the end and only one or two drinks as it is seriously over priced. However, the garden is stunning with a little stream flowing threw it.

The Winery is quite well regarded in Burton by some. That being said, outside of chains like Bella Italia and Nandos there is little competition (the exception being The Old Vicarage which is genuinely quite good) . Went for a business lunch. At the price (don't get me wrong we're not talking Michelin star tasting menu prices) I was just... More

That said, we appreciate we may not be to everyone's taste. It's a shame that you weren't able to return the steak as the kitchen team would... More

Had lunch with 3 friends and were not disappointed. We asked about the soup and were given a taster which is a good way to choose. The Sea Bream main course was very tasty along with the Champ potatoes and a great sauce with mushrooms and prawns. Our wine choices were good and not too pricey and I like the... More

Took my daughter, her boyfriend & my father here for her birthday meal. Chose it for its stunning setting, although I had heard mixed reviews about the food but decided to give it a go. Ordered starter off a south African, I think, waiter & at the end of the order I said "You've got the mussels there haven't you?".... More

Really fabulous place and been a number of times. However last week wanted to take friends that have never been. Went on the website to book, put in the time and it came up with the time the table must be vacated by. Any restaurant that now feels that it is so full of its own self importance doesnt get...

All menus are excellent. We had a full three course evening meal for two with a very nice Italian red to wash it down. The staff were very attentive but not pushy, the restaurant filled up quickly after 8.00pm, but our food order came out at just the right sort of timing for us. We really enjoyed everything that was... More
