This was by far the best meal I have had in ages. My lamb was cooked to perfection and the vegetables amazing ( and I really don't get excited over veg) the mezze starter was exceptional too. The staff really worked hard around the pub as most of the tables were reserved. If you are in Malmesbury, visit this pub... More

We know we are guaranteed great food, great atmosphere and lovely service. Unfortunately we didn't on this occasion, the service was poor, we didn't receive any check backs on our food so didn't get... More

After receiving an e-mail about the fresh Fowey mussels every Tuesday we decided to go for lunch and were not disappointed. The mussels were absolutely amazing, so fresh and full of flavour and the sauces were divine. The service was excellent and we were very well looked after. We've eaten at the Vine Tree a few times now and it... More

Very yummy good pub food. Dinner with wine and puddings was about 28£ a head which isn't too bad. The service was without character but fine. Definitely would go here for the food! The fish and chips were HUGE and delicious, really good cream-of-tartar sauce. Although I wouldn't really bother with the sticky toffee pudding, it's just sponge with syrup... More

The Pub Guide led us to this gem of a pub/restaurant, conveniently just off the M4 and well signposted. A warm welcome on a bitterly cold day and a log fire trying its best greeted us on arrival. The menu was excellent......interesting and inventive as well as offering good, classic dishes. The wide range of wines by the glass and... More

Unbeatable quality in terms of ambience, food and service. Perfect for just a pint, or a casual or more formal lunch or supper. Really exceptional.
