Charming little pub with a memorable atmosphere!
Staff were very knowledgeable about such a wide selection of beverages! Lots of different beers (cask - the vanilla Porter is great!, keg and craft cans/bottles), as well as their own spirits which are great - especially the orange and lemon Gin!
Wide range of snacks and sandwiches at the weekend and a lovely beer garden.
Well worth a visit!

This lovely big country feel of a pub is diagonally opposite Elmore Park.

Only local road parking, & if you drive to close to pub & can’t find a spot you have to drive all the way around again because of the one way road system in place.

The ivy is doing its best to cover the Vine sign on the outer walls.

As you walk in, the left hand side room is possibly a function room, it wasn’t in use but had party stuff on tables.

The bar is to the right hand side.

It had 5 real ales on, 4 of which were brewed on site in their own brewery.

It is a dog friendly pub, locals were friendly too.

Real wood fire was on giving the place a cosy feel.

Cobs available at bar, ham & cheese.

2 games machines.

At the back of bar as you go down corridor there is a small snug type room with leather settee inside.

Men’s & ladies toilets towards rear of building left hand side.

3 ladies loos, with black & white tiling & nice wooden latch door, still another pub with no hooks on back of doors, where to people expect you do hang your coat & bag up ? The floor is not the answer.

Beyond the corridor, outside is an average sized beer garden.

5 sets of benches left hand side with long garden trays of tulips in blooms.

2 sets tables under cover which seems to be the smokers area.

Brewery just beyond garden.

Opens from midday to gone midnight each day.
