Went to the Vine Inn, Tenterden 2 days running. The first visit was lovely. Delicious chicken and ham pie and fish and chips, friendly staff who were very helpful. The bar was clean, modern and there was a pleasant atmosphere in the pub. The next day was disappointing. We went late afternnoon so it wasn't busy. My husband had the... More

The atmosphere is fine in the Vine if you get the right table. We went on Saturday and got a table which was off the main run, so was good. The menu offers a good selection and although there was a bit of a wait (due to it being so busy), the food when it arrived was worth waiting for.... More

We've stopped here several times for a lunchtime snack and a bottle of wine and like the ambiance as it is more like a wine bar than a pub. Food is quite interesting and the sandwiches are not limited to your normal cheese&onion or ham&pickle. Wine is reasonably priced and you can normally find a quiet corner with soft seats... More

Together with a couple of friends, my husband and I had a lunch here. The menu choice is extensive and the food is freshly cooked. It is a busy place so obviously with freshly cooked food and large numbers, it takes a little while for service, however the staff are efficient, polite and friendly. Definitely recommend to locals and visitors.

The Vine Inn, nice building, lovely seating in various nooks and crannies. The young staff were pleasant and helpful. The menu was varied, and good value. We both enjoyed what we had, everything was well cooked and presented and nothing was left. The pub did fill up very quickly, a good sign. I did experience that peculiar phenomenon, that is... More

This is the second time we have visited The Vine. Last time we didn't eat, this time we did! Really nice, honest, decent pub food. Served in a nice, quirky environment by lovely staff. Recommended.
