A great restaurant and bar with great food and atmosphere! The Inn is cozy as well. Although I've now forgotten his name, the Host is a teriffic guy who I befriended after my second time there.

Very friendly waiting staff. More interesting menu than many of the places in the village and some good wines at sensible prices. We will definitely be back

Now here’s a place that knows the value of good service. We were welcomed warmly and found a table at this very popular place within about 10 minutes. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive - offering food suggestions and advice. We had some great tapas - the sharing boards are pretty huge - and lovely wine. There was a party atmosphere brewing as the inside was to be a dance area after the diners had finished. We were not remotely rushed though and even went for dessert. It’s a comfy and pretty set up - both inside and out. Several members of staff had a chat as they passed. They can make a great Aperol spritz too - so all was well with the world as far as I was concerned! Highly recommended.

Florence,

We really appreciate the kind words and I'm glad you had a great time. The sharing boards have been a big hit with our customers this season.

We look forward to your next visit.

If you are looking for a home town local feel while On vacation look no further. James and his crew offer just that. They make you feel like you walked into your local favorite spot back home. Which let’s be honest; even tho you are not at home you want to feel that welcome. The service is Impeccable and the food will make your taste buds water and want more. We saw old vines from the road and it just looked inviting. To our pleasure and surprise we stubbled upon happy hour. Half price wine and snacks. The food is inventive and unique. The chef obviously has a creative pallet and passion for food. I mean scotch bonnet pepper jelly?! Come on amazing! We got to sample some amazing local cheese and hand crafted cocktails. You can see the hand made tinctures set up behind the bar. We tried to leave for some music at a place next door but ended up right back at old vines we felt that happy. So sit back and enjoy. It so worth it.
Cheers! �
