A British run locals bar in Spain that welcomes local trade and visitors alike. Expect friendly courteous service a range of beers and wines at reasonable prices. Don't expect cordon bleu cooking - its is a pub that serves pub grub, pub food that is well cooked and reasonably priced. It is a bar you can be part of, talk the staff talk to the locals. If you are looking for an authentic spanish experience, go next door, or to any of the multitude of spanish bars and restaurants that are close by. The Vine is unashamedly a "British" bar that shows UK football and offers its clientele a pleasant unthreatening ambience without any sense of feeling uncomfortable when abroad.
Use it and enjoy it!

Been to Benalmadena many times but never visited this pub.Decided to go for Sunday lunch on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews.
I am afraid to say it was all pretty underwhelming and food was so so.Sure it is cheap but not great quality.Bar itself is fairly dull and dark and the outside space is not located in a tree lined avenue,a lane more like!
I have had much better Sunday roasts in a whole host of Benalmadena bars and restaurants,and all much better than this.Give El Karmen a try for a roast on Sunday lunch or evening.

We've visited this bar many times. The staff are friendly (shame the landlords a Villa fan). Great quality reasonably priced food. Well worth a visit if you are in Arroyo.

We have now on several occasions visited the vine to find the Landlord an Landlady Terry an Jan very welcoming. It is a very friendly bar, and always very busy, whether people are there to eat or watch the football or just in for a drink. There is plenty of room to sit comfortably, also tables and chairs outside in a lovely tree lined area.
The Food is top class, with a lovely varied menu very enjoyable, compliments to the Chef.
I will continue to visit the Vine in the future. Well Done Terry n Jan for running a friendly Bar.

Thank Tracy C
