Popped in for dinner and a couple of drinks with my dad this evening. Never been to The Vine Inn before but we will definitely be back. Friendly and welcoming staff, great food which arrived to us quickly, clean and well presented pub and well kept garden!

Often drop in for a quick beer if I have time to kill. Good beer and service alway friendly. Looks a bit ordinary from outside but lovely bar area with comfortable seating and patio is a sun trap. Will get around to eating one day..... well worth a visit.

Visited this afternoon. Was pleasantly surprised at the menu, a combination of Mexican and British food. I had the beef chilli it was amazing! My daughter had an open chicken sandwich looked fabulous. Men had more traditional ham egg and chips and cheese burger but both looked really tasty. Service was good. Would recommend. Hats off to the chef!

3 adults and 2 children at lunchtime. Service was very slow and the wait for our food was 45 minutes- with no apology. The children's meals were fine- no issues. Myself and my partner ordered a burger, the pork couldn't be described as pulled pork but more chunks of dry, lukewarm pork. This was a shame as the sweet potato... More

We often head to the Vine for lunch when visiting Tenderden, my favourite dish was a special I haven't seen on the menu recently and I enjoyed one cold winter day - it was sausage cassoulet and was absolutely delicious! Nice cosy setting in the restaurant area, friendly staff.

Visited today with good Friends for Lunch, being in a Wheelchair means ensuring access is possible and that there are disabled facilities. The staff were very helpful when I phoned to book, giving me directions of how to get into the pub from the nearest Carpark. Our table was easy to access, the service was very attentive without being overbearing.... More

Since our last visit they have changed the menu to include some mexican dishes, not a bad idea just to be a little different from the normal "pub grub" We both had a starter and main , for lunch it was too much , next time we will just have the main course. Overall a good experience and the server... More
