Visited The Vine with a group of 8 friends. We had hired a narrowboat & when we saw this pub we thought it looked perfect.
The pub has massive potential with a large beer garden that leads down to the canal.
We sat for a good half hour before someone took our order, but we were early did our table do put it down to that.
When the food came it was generally good, though one of the tuna steaks wasn't cooked properly, and a lasagne was missed off the order.
While we were there one of the toilets blocked and the man (waiter/owner/barman??) that had taken our order went to unblock it just as he had given us our meal. He then thought it was appropriate to wander through the restaurant with soiled gloves shouting he'd unblocked it.
The Vine has massive potential if it was managed correctly. It wouldn't really need any money spent in it due to it's fantastic location. Unfortunately it is very much a 'Fawlty Towers' experience.
