    Good straight forward food at a decent price and with the benefit of the Bolney wines. A nice balcony to sit out on overlooking the vines. A good barista who knows what he is doing and uses good beans.

    I did not realize there was a lift so struggled up the stairs. We had a nice table and the food was delicious. Knife was blunt but the worst thing was the noise. I had to take my hearing aids out.

    We both were very happy with our meal. I thought £6 for a small bottle of Morelli lager was a bit steep. Same for the wine @£9 but its the ambience you are getting and paying for. We will definitely come for Breakfast... Lunch is more of a treat!

    A beautiful setting and view. Restaurant food and wine was excellent value. Food was delayed as it was busy but we didn’t mind as we wanted to stay as long as we could! Serving staff brought complimentary nibbles as a result which was thoughtful. A lovely place to mark a special occasion or to just enjoy a leisurely meal. Will definitely return.

    Lovely spot on a sunny day for lunch. Very attentive service (until they got a bit too busy and it fell apart a bit!) but warm, welcoming and friendly. Couple of improvements they might want to consider….. bench seat tables not very comfortable for a lunch (or ladylike or suitable for my elderly mum!) would be nice to see more attractive furniture for a cafe/restaurant. Also, not enough umbrellas - it’s very hot in the sun without a sun umbrella at lunch time. We had to move indoors which was a shame on a lovely day. Aside from those suggestions, we loved our lunch, the menu and setting. Well done everybody!

    A really good place for lunch - a very happy and lighthearted ambience - everyone having a good time. Food very good and service attentive but not intrusive. We really enjoyed it and will go again. Plus we bought a bottle of Bolney Gin - Haven't tried that yet but pretty sure it will be great. Have already recommended them to a friend!

    Setting is lovely overlooking the vineyard. Service, however, was VERY poor, the worst I have known anywhere for a long time. We asked for two more minutes to decide what we wanted on arrival but then waitress took 15 minutes to return NOT because of serving others but due to chatting to other members of staff. We then asked for more bread as it much given but again waitress fi busy chatting she forgot to bring any so after another 15 minutes we had to ask again. Waitress must learn she is there to serve not to chat!!

    Warm welcome shown to table brought water and took our order(so far so good) we waited nearly an hour and others coming after us had their food and drink. I called the waitress and she came back saying our order had been lost and we would be getting it very soon! Not really ideal, luckily we are two friends meeting up for a relaxing chat and lunch so we were happy enough in such a great atmosphere, but we felt it is a shame the staff let the place down. I considered bringing my son for Breakfast but he hates to be kept waiting long so not sure if it’s a good idea - a shame as the Breakfast menu looks great!

    We had a lovely breakfast at Bolney. The menu had enough choices for everyone. The venue was lovely, with clean and bright restaurant area with a large veranda for outdoor eating. The staff were helpful and pleasant and the food was excellent. There was a bit of a wait as the food was all freshly cooked, the quality of the ingredients was very good. I would not normally mention it but the toilet facilities were spotless and well maintained. We would like to come back another time for lunch. The only average thing was the price for this type of setting and quality. Thanks to the Bolney team for a lovely birthday breakfast!

    This is a unique venue with the backdrop of the vineyard. The food is delicious and well presented with a brunch and lunch menu, You can select wine by the glass or bottle to accompany your food. The staff are really nice and friendly too. This is somewhere a bit special with the added attraction of a well-stocked shop - well worth a visit!

    Our visit for birthday lunch was great. The staff were so accommodating and all very knowledgeable about the food and the wine. Suggesting the most suitable wine to go with our dinner and the weather. There was no trying to up-sell to something more expensive. Thank you all for a lovely day.
