“Warm friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Went to the wine bar for a private function, what a great venue, small, cosy, warm and welcoming, would recommend for a party but can't wait to go back to enjoy a nice meal, the buffet for the party was outstanding , Lisa and tony who run the wine bar were so welcoming and work so very hard with the help of a waitress (sorry can't remember her name but was always smiling) good team work. Intimate dining experience, a must do.

“Can't believe we hadn't been before now. Will be going back to The Wine Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

We are local to herne bay but have never used the wine bar for a drink or food.
We went for a bike ride and my husbands sister said try the wine bar, so we did!
It's been a very windy day today but we parked up and sat outside.
Lovely location and has a nice romantic feel about it.(even though we were out on the bikes and there for a quick lunch )
I have no bad points nor anything negative to write.
Drinks lovely. Food lovely. And most importantly for us, the owner (Lisa?), she knows how to be a hostess. It really does make the difference. Very welcoming and knowledgable. Fantastic.
We will be returning and we will be recommending to friends and family.

“Beautiful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

I have eaten in the Wine bar a good few times now and love it.

The food is always (on the times I have been there) excellent. it's a little gem of a place with friendly staff and customers. I recommend their stake and also Lamb Shanks if available, as the menu changes regularly, another excellent sign.

Yep, I would suggest it's more than worth a visit.

“FANTASTIC PLACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

Went here at the weekend with friends and all we can say is this place is FANTASTIC and so are Lisa and Tony who run it. We went here for a drink in the afternoon and then booked a table for the evening and I'm so glad we did as the food, atmosphere and people were outstanding, we are so glad we read the tripadvisor reviews and tried it for ourselves. We will be returning VERY soon without doubt, thankyou for such a great night with outstanding food.
