Went for a Sunday lunch and left a little disappointed. We expected good quality for £15 per roast. Meat was a bit chewy and greasy. The rest of our meal was ok. Overall not too bad, just didn't blow us away. As it's local to us we will probably return.

We went in for a Sunday lunch. The atmosphere and the facilities is excellent. Dog and child friendly. The menu was extensive and the food was delicious. But it was the service that let down this place. They were all over the place and it seemed chaotic. A request to microwave baby's food, for 60 seconds, took over 10 minutes.... More

Far too many gastro pubs ignore the needs of the fervent ale drinker. Not here. Yes on other occasions I have enjoyed the wine. But with good friends in high (non driving) spirts, sometimes a good fire, ale and some bar snacks are all that are required. Lovely evening. On other occasions the food has been great and they have... More

We ate there today and was completely impressed with everything. Plenty of easy parking.Very Nice venue, food was reasonably priced, generous portions, very hot and very tasty! Although we had about four different people taking orders throughout our visit they were all very polite and helpful. Overall above average pub food... Definitely recommend and will definitely be back!

I had a really lovely evening here recently. I am a lover of gourmet food and the Vineyard really impressed me - it's closer to restaurant/ fine dining than simple pub grub. They use a wide variety of locally sourced produce, serving all sorts of game, yummy veggie dishes including very on trend salads, and interesting specials. The wine list... More

Friends recommended this restaurant/pub and it was lovely. Great view looking out on the gardens. Food was excellent, the lobster, steak and pies were sumptuous, best sticky toffee pudding ever!!! Service was excellent too.

We got there a bit late for Sunday lunch but, luckily the serve food all day. The platters are great as were the deserts. Many gluten free options. Excellent wine list.

I didn't really want to like The Vineyard! The annual Lamberhurst bonfire was always held on The Down, opposite The Vineyard. A couple of years back they put up their prices just to capitalise on this. The bonfire got moved to the playing fields; and I've boycotted The Vineyard ever since. So I wasn't predisposed to give them a good... More

Today was my second visit in a fortnight and the meal and service were excellent. The Sunday roasts are very good value and of the finest quality. £15 and such tender meat. The service is first class from warm friendly staff. Keep up the good work. Already looking forward to the next visit.

Thank derekryan
