I have been dining at the "Vines" for about six years now. And whilst the meals used to be satisfying, nutritious & good value for money, that is no longer the case. Whilst the staff are still co-operative and friendly, the meals are a real disappointment.

Although the decor is somewhat dated, it is a relaxing place for a family meal or a quiet drink. There is an outdoor space and even a small playroom for young children.

This restaurant is a good old fashion place with good value for money meals. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff who are kept busy. Great variety on the menu and meals are filling and flavoursome. Don't expect 5 star service if that's what you want, it's not that type of place. My only recommendation to the restaurant is that the dining... More

Friends catch up meal. My rib eye steak was delicious and enjoyed the rest of the meal but my husband's steak with his "all day breakfast" type of meal was extremely difficult to cut and he couldn't chew it. The waitress at full volume tried to help but just ended up embarrassing us.

On a day visiting wineries with a private tour, our guide took us here for a quick lunch. It's been a while since the lunch so I cannot comment on each thing we ate.

This place is great! We sat out in the courtyard, as it was a beautiful day. Food was great value, service was fast and friendly. Would go back any day, probably cheaper than take aways.......
