We usually eat in on the day of arrival and were not disappointed by the food and wine available. The service was quick and efficient.

This is the main restaurant of the Vineyard Hotel and has more than mainstream hotel feel dining, rather than being a specialist restaurant. The atmosphere is very pleasant with large ceilings forming a combination of modern and traditional walls. However it is quite noisy due to the atrium feeling, and in some cases you feel a little bit part of... More

We ate in The Square Restaurant 2 nights out of the 4 we stayed in the Vineyard. The food was first class, as was the service and the wine list was very impressive. The Square is stylishly decorated and although the restaurant is inside the hotel, it feels very much like sitting in a beautiful courtyard outside.

We visited for a team breakfast. We chose the full english breakfast. Value for money. The cold and hot buffet is great, tasty and big variety to choose from. You also get to choose one dish from the a la carte menu. I chose the eggs benedict, this is good, not the best , but the overall breakfast experience is... More

Lovely ambience. Excellent and helpful staff service on one occasion slower than ideal but we happened not to be in a rush. So was relaxing.

We had the breakfast menu and you could not have wished for greater choice. A wonderful buffet selection of fruits, compote, cereals, cheeses, pastries and juices and then an extremely comprehensive menu of hot dishes to choose from. All served in delightful surrounds. Whats not to enjoy

Myoga was closed for a private function so we went to the square. The food stunned me! The waldorf salad was the best I've ever tasted, with rocket, salad, and two diiferent apples. Instead of being smothered in mayo, there are little blobs on the edge of the plate, and it a hint of tumeric which really made the dish!... More

Hotel breakfasts tend to be same old, same old ... But not at the Square Restaurant at the Vineyard. A delicious array of food on the buffet table as well as a wide selection of yummy dishes on the a la carte menu make breakfast time a highlight! Service is excellent and setting attractive.

Great decor. Great busy ambiance. Excellent breakfast offering. A la carte dinner menu excellent. Upper Square part of restaurant super for private groups but with feeling part of the main action! Staff in private area need to be a bit more on the ball and visible and replenish drinks and offer coffee quicker. Great presentation of food, fine dining standard... More
