The good bits- delicious food and ample servings, really enjoyed the dumplings and the duck.
Not so good, front of house staff left a lot to be desired, our waitress was very curt, off hand and dismissive. Felt like we were being served in a McDonalds. I left the table so my wife could speak with her privately about improving her attitude, where as I was very tempted to just leave and eat somewhere else.
When we were presented with the bill, we were overcharged some$130, the set menu had been charged to our bill but so had the dishes that were included in the set dinner menu, can this be accidental, I doubt it.
Naturally we challenged the bill and were informed by another staff member that we were the second customers to be overcharged that evening - this is pretty appalling.
Obviously no tip was provided and we won't ever return.
I will write to the owner.

Lovely restaurant in a beautiful garden. We stopped here for a lovely lunch as we arrived in the area, and it could not have been a better introduction. The carpaccio was fabulous.

We had a great dinner at Vintners. We did the 3 course option which was both filling and delicious, lots of variety on the menu and a great ambiance. Would highly recommend

Vintner’s delivered 10/10 yet again. We sat outside on the carpark-side for lunch and the sun did become a ’hot topic’, so we wish had planned better and requested a table outside on the front aspect, but that is the only reflection we have on our visit that could be considered slightly less than perfect. Despite our positioning, our waitress was present at regular intervals and we felt perfectly looked after and never forgotten.

We could only manage two courses plus a snack to start (those oh so decadent pigs ears to get the party started!!!), as the portions were not lacking whatsoever. Filling!! Of 8 dishes ordered by 4 guests, none received less than 10/10 praise!! I have previously had the scotch fillet each time but decided on something different this time, but when someone else took delivery of ’my’ beef and I watched their enjoyment, the food envy definitely set in. It is always absolutely divine!! But equally impressive were the yellow curry, the tuna/beets entree (the eyes and the tastebuds debated who got the best feast there!!) and then the blue swimmer crab pasta … the consumer of that dish just retreated into blissful silence and drifted off into food oblivion ;)
We would never hesitate to recommend Vintner’s. It always worries us that if we go again and again we won’t be as impressed…. but thankfully disappointment still remains to be seen!!!!!!
