Really enjoyed this place, the food excellent and service superb.
The triple cooked chips were worth the visit on their own!.... and their homemade version of sticky toffee pudding was to die for. Excellent all round, bravo chefs.

The vine tree is a very smart pub-restaurant, with more of an emphasis on the restaurant. We visited for Sunday lunch and had great pork and beef roasts, and very fine dessert. Booking is recommended as many people were turned away while we were there. Good service as well, best in the area in our opinion.

A Great Place to sit outside for sitting in the Shade and watching The World go by. We look forward to bringing back The Steak Sandwich!

Stopped for a quick drink passing through but ended up staying a while longer ....great choice of excellent wines , decor stylish and relaxed , comfy sofas and the promise of a roaring log fire when temperatures dipped , could have quite happily settled in for tha night. Staff were friendly and professional , could not fault

The food was excellent, the drinks were served at the perfect temerature and the decor is very relaxing. However, this is all let down, very badly indeed, by the poor front of house experience.
Staff did not know what they were doing, they did not even know the table numbers - as a result the wrong orders were given to the wrong tables. The guys next to us were given their mains (twice) before their starters! When staff weren;t serving they seemed to be hiding, and when serving they kept their eyes averted and scuttled away as fast as they could - and so it was very difficult to attract their attention.
As a result of the customer frustration the atmosphere was far from happy and the price tag added to the misery.
As I said the food was excellent but that was badly let down by poorly trrained. poorly motivated and disinterested staff.
There are many restaurants in the ares offering a far better expeience.
