Nothing wrong but nothing to write home about and make me want to return. It's what we used to call "middle of the road". Bland.

Friends came from London and we ate at lunch time. Again, Vibins, didn’t let us down. Excellent food at reasonable prices.

Really enjoyed the food, it was smaller portions but delicious and after 2 courses we were comfortably full. The flavour combinations were great and the meat was really well cooked, melt in your mouth moment.
The price was very reasonable for the quality of food.
We were the only table for a while and that made the atmosphere a little subdued but there was good background music.
Would recommend and definitely return

Took my adult children here for belated birthday celebrations. They both enjoyed what they chose from the menu. I was a little disappointed with my spiced mackerel starter, which was somewhat bland and not at all spicy. My main course however (the Vietnamese pork belly) was a wow; succulent tender meat and lovely flavoursome noodles. I felt that the desserts were a little overpriced for what they were (although the kids enjoyed their sticky toffee puddings) and so decided on ice cream. The salted caramel was quite nice and cheaper. It was not busy on the evening that we visited but the service was not as attentive as it should have been and the underworked single waitress could have been friendlier. She spent a lot of time chatting to one particular couple at the expense of giving us better service.

Very poor service... the breakfast sausages were good quality and that’s about it. Went for breakfast, waited over 45 minutes for a cooked breakfast which had very little to it.

My wife and I had different dishes. She enjoyed her risotto very much and haf only praise for the dish. I too enjoyed my 'Duck two ways' but I would have enjoyed mine even more if it had been hotter. As it was, it was just above lukewarm and I really prefer my food to be piping hot. The duck skin was also a bit rubbery where I think it should have been crispy but this wasn't a problem of any significance. Despite these two observations, I will be going back to Vibin's and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

The food was delicious. They had made a lovely effort to make the table decorations and party banner.
The waiting staff seemed overwhelmed and had no knowledge of the menu when questioned about dishes, which was frustrating. But overall a good night

Went to Vibin’s a couple of days ago for an early evening meal and were very well looked after. The food was excellent (as always). Loved the Masala fried tiger prawns (would make a great main dish) and the Asian BBQ rump end cap was superb. We’ll be back very soon

We were shown upstairs to an empty room apart from one couple. Waitress than disappeared and left us there for 15mins without taking drinks order or giving us a menu - after 15 mins she came back to take an order from the other couple so we called her over and her explanation was that they did not have enough menus! It was fairly obvious by now that this was not somewhere we wanted to stay so we said we would go and the waitress escorted us to the door. We did not see any other staff apart from one other waitress. When I posted my review the owner asked me to message him then told me off for not talking to him or staff about the situation!! Therewas no one else to talk to though we obviously did talk to the waitress who did not seem surprised.or perturbed that we were leaving.

Great meal out in this little find. Lovely food, classics done well and some more creative options. Both of us enjoyed our food very much and were impressed with the quality of the meats. Water was provided immediately on arrival which was great though no bread basket / palate cleansers / grissini between courses which for the price we might have expected. Our waitress was brilliant and did well for us with her menu suggestions, really friendly and bubbly.

Hubby and I enjoyed a quiet, romantic dinner here on a Saturday night. It was quiet because it was a very warm evening. The food was really good and well presented and very hot! The two waitresses who looked after us were very attentive, well spoken, well dressed.
You can eat indoors and outdoors.
We like eating here and will return.

Very impressed with Vibins! Firstly, the staff were very accommodating and organised a table that my dad (who used a wheelchair) could get to. They also made note of the fact it was a meal for his birthday and decorated the table which was lovely to see when we walked in! The food was beautifully cooked with good attention to detail. We would definitely come back to Vibins!

We had the steak special - lovely meal and at such good value. Service was superb - really stood out

Upstairs lacks a little atmosphere (which is where we sat), but it doesn't detract - overall it was all excellent and a lovely experience
