I visited this restaurant a few years ago by chance and had a pleasant lunch, so when I knew I was coming to Tenterden I did not hesitate to book for the set christmas meal for 8 adults and 3 children, we were delighted with the meal,it was certainly excellent value for money. The decor is warm and inviting, the... More

We rented an oasthouse nearby for the weekend and had Sunday lunch at The vine . Our party of 10 included 4 children . From the outside ( although recently painted ) the building didn't draw you in . Though once you enter the premises you realise there was a lovely warm recently renovated interior within . We did pre... More

First visit to The Vine after going to the christmas fayre yesterday. The food wasn't hot and portion sizes dissapointing. The waitresses didn't ask about our meals or if we wanted to see the dessert menu after sitting for quite some time. In fact we weren't looked after at all. Very dissapointing and won't be returning.

Luckily we made a booking for the restaurant as the town was busy due to the market in the high street. We was seated promptly and our order was taken after a sufficient time to look at the menu. Great roast served piping hot with a side dish of veg also lovely and warm. Wife's dish of belly pork was... More

Most comfortable place in Tenterden for a coffee. Lovely seating in various nooks and crannies. Good value too.

We had a family birthday meal on the 12th November early evening. Adults and grand children. The service from the waitress was very good. We have used this pub a few times in the summer, always been happy with the food . Was nice to sit outside with my grandchildren with no complaints. But this time were seated in the... More

I recently visited The Vine Inn with my sister & mum, after journeying from London to visit a cousin in hospital. I used the trip advisor app to locate nearby restaurants & after scrolling through the choices found The Vine Inn. We were not disappointed by either the service or the quality of the food - we all enjoyed our... More

A random choice for a lunch with friends. We were shown to our table promptly and the menu looked very interesting. I had a brief encounter with that peculiar phenomenon that is modern cleaning fluid on old varnish - my sleeve stuck to the table so I minded my manners and kept my elbow off the table. Our starters were... More

We called in to the Vine Inn after a full day of exploring. The atmosphere is welcoming, the food and wine were both delicious... The service was very good. All in all a lovely way to end the day.

Lovely evening we had at the vine. We tried to find a last minute dinner table but alot of the local pubs were too cold as they havnt yet put their fireplaces on! Stunning food and a nice atmosphere. The sharing starter was unusually delightful. I would recomend it highly!
