We got there a bit late for Sunday lunch but, luckily the serve food all day. The platters are great as were the deserts. Many gluten free options. Excellent wine list.

I didn't really want to like The Vineyard! The annual Lamberhurst bonfire was always held on The Down, opposite The Vineyard. A couple of years back they put up their prices just to capitalise on this. The bonfire got moved to the playing fields; and I've boycotted The Vineyard ever since. So I wasn't predisposed to give them a good... More

Today was my second visit in a fortnight and the meal and service were excellent. The Sunday roasts are very good value and of the finest quality. £15 and such tender meat. The service is first class from warm friendly staff. Keep up the good work. Already looking forward to the next visit.

We came here for Boxing Day lunch 2016. The roast was served cold with what I can only describe as "re heated" roast potatoes. It was also not entirely complete (the promised yorkshire puddings failed to make it to the plate). When the yorkshires did arrive they were cold too. We complained and were told that the chef would give... More

Dear Madaeller, Thank you for your review and please accept once again our apologies that the main courses wasn't up to our usual standard. I understand only 2 main courses were questioned and the manager on duty that day offered the 2 complimentary puddings based on those. We were under the impression that the other guests were happy with their... More

Food mixed so average: Roasted parsnip and chestnut soup and Roquefort salad good, fish and chips poor and apple and pear crumble cold. Service friendly but somewhat slow and wrong dessert delivered. We came a long way to meet my sister and will not come again.

Visit on 07/12/16. Love the setting just outside the actual vineyard. The garden area always looks well maintained even in the Winter. The restaurant offers seasonal classics, game meats and is always clean. 1st time I tried partridge and whilst I wouldn't order again it wasn't poorly cooked I just found it fiddly to cut and would have preferred something...

Busy pub with good atmosphere. Drinks at the bar were served in appropriate glasses, i.e. good heavy glass for g & t. Food of good standard and staff helpful. Lovely log fire and cosy seating. I have been here in the summer also where dining outside is very enjoyable.

Called in to the Vineyard for Sunday lunch as we were visiting Scotney castle nearby. Booked a table online a week ahead which was just as well as they were really busy and may not have fitted us in if we just turned up! I had roast turkey as did my dad. My wife had fillet steak. All of our... More

Cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. Food & service both at a very high level and the atmosphere and friendliness of staff brilliant. They did not rush us, they allowed us to eat at our leisure. Totally and utterly impressive.
