lockdown open space dining time
Excellent Service : Careful adherence to pandemic hygienic rules. Temperature control carefully attended to inside the garden covered area; courteous staff and with a long run between the kitchen and garden area- staffs kept food served promptly and hot.
Food: I had the home cooked lasagne, the spices are balanced, the accompanying garlic bread great, no lack of garlic, herbs, just well oiled and salad fresh with a coat of light dressing - just right.
Garden: nicely landscaped

Good value for money. Service was a little slow when it came to taking orders but overall couldn't fault them in these circumstances. Food was traditional but well made.

We have always found the Vine a friendly and relaxed place to go. Coping with the restrictions is a challenge they are coping with well still giving a good service and good food.

Our party of five had a really warm welcome and felt very covid safe throughout the meal. Unfortunately service was patchy and not very attentive. The coffee machine was broken so no post lunch coffee. And the milk ran out?! Food was acceptable, but not great.

Took 45 minutes to get even drinks ordered!! Not nearly enough staff working on a Friday night. Woman giving us our bill leant over me without a mask, comprising my safety. This could be a great pub but our visit was such a let down :(

Unfortunately it took two hours to get our food. Fortunately it was a sunny day and we were not in a rush. Frustrating though. When the food arrived, it was very indifferent - clearly straight out of the freezer.

Poor service, waited over an hour for drinks, food was cold.
It’s a shame but I will not be returning or recommending anyone to go here

iI was a pleasant experience with staff respectful of the Covid 19 safety rules. The restaurant was not very busy but hopefully will pick up nearer Christmas.
