The food is very good / bordering on excellent. The problem, and why we may not return anytime soon, is the ambience. Terrible acoustics, tables too close together/haphazard. Might be fine for large loud lunch parties, but not appropriate for tables of two at dinner.

Lovely brunch again. 11 of us this time. 7 adults, 4 children. Table was ready when we arrived. Service was prompt and friendly staff. Food was enjoyed by everyone. It’s a great place for a quiet coffee or family get together. Not many places can fulfill both of these requirements. Definitely be returning

Very good food well prepared. Service was good apart from delays with drinks. Food came out a bit too quickly.
The dining room is in need of redecorating, new furniture and some effort to create atmosphere like table cloths, candles and modern pictures or paintings on the walls. The wine boxes in the old speakers really doesn’t do it.

Very pleasant Father’s Day lunch. I eat all over the world with my job and am lucky to experience some fine dining and great steaks. For the UK and a relatively small unknown restaurant the quality of the steaks was beyond my expectations.

Staff very pleasant and a nice Paulliac to boot. 3 fussy teenagers thoroughly enjoyed their food and the scallops my son had were “awesome”.

Thank you very much.

My reservation was for celebrating the birthday of an old and dear friend. The staff welcomed us in and seated us with care. After this was done the service slowed down and we had to wait a while to place our food order. The food, when it came to the table, was average and therefore somewhat disappointing. The lack of soft furnishings meant the noise level was quite considerable, so much so that holding a conversation comfortably was next to impossible.
I had dined at The Wine Circle some years ago and liked it quite a lot. The experience this time was not good and as said, rather disappointing. Sadly, I doubt that I shall be returning.

When I am back visiting my UK home village of Virginia Water, I always visit The Wine Circle at least two or three times for luncheons with friends, dinners with friends, coffee or drinks with friends, even their lovely breakfasts with friends!!!

A favorite place for me....

We found it by chance on the Open Table app n went for dinner with friends. We ordered a sharing platter for starters along with some garlic, spicy prawns. Both were quite good n the portions were big. Then two of us ordered the Butlers steak n two ordered the fish. Both were very good n our waiter was a young college student who was very pleasant , smiling n helpful. We had a glass of St. Emillion grand cry n were very happy with the taste n value. Overall I would recommend it for a delightful meal, although small but lot of parking in the neighbourhood as the station car park is just opposite the restaurant. Value for money.

We always love eating at the Wine Circle! Sonny and Chrissie are always welcoming, and the food is consistently delicious. Their menu is varied and they often have new and interesting dishes to try. Next door is their wine store, and you are encouraged to join their wine club which offers discount on the wine and the dining.

Spent another wonderful evening in the Wine Circle catching up with a dear friend. Love it there - there is absolutely no pressure to hurry, the staff are attentive, patient and well informed. Lovely selection of food and fabulous wines with great advice on which to choose for your meal.
Extremely good value especially for Wine Circle members who get 25% discount on everything so you feel even better about treating yourself.
