We just called in late Sunday for a drink and snack - loved it - so returned on Tuesday for supper. Sara, Ian and another staff member looked after us well. The Chargrilled flat iron steak was delicious, I opted for ham, egg and chunky chips - all the food was served piping hot. Great Pub - lots of atmosphere... More

Went here with friends for a traditional Sunday roast and was pleasantly surprised as to how well the food was cooked considering the numbers involved. The restaurant was packed, a lovely atmosphere with everyone enjoying the occasion. As mentioned, how the kitchen staff can manage to produce crispy roast potatoes, lovely crunchy vegetables and gorgeous roast beef in such large... More

We took some friends for dinner at the Old Vine as we always have a great meal and lovely friendly service and this was the case again last night - our friends thoroughly enjoyed it. What ruined an otherwise perfect evening was a table of 4 with a loud and obnoxious man sitting at it who was very loudly and... More

We had a fantastic lunch at The Old Vine today, thanks to the generosity of our children. Sara and Ian were on top form and gave us a superb set three course menu. The Oreiller d'ecrevisse, which was crayfish in a pasta pillow with mushrooms in a prawn veloute was a starter made in heaven. The atmosphere was very good... More

Came for a meal on a Friday evening. Really nice atmosphere and had quite a buzz. We did book, but there were other tables available. We both had the chicken curry which was nice. Good menu choice and quick service. One of the better pubs in the area, I would say. I hope it doesn't change.
