Four of us have been to the Vineyard many times and have never been disappointed. Their home made pies are a particular speciality, and have various tasty fillings. Service was good, very attentive, leaving us enough time for a leisurely coffee before going to the theatre.

We decided to visit the vineyard pre theatre having had it recommended to us. Well where shall we start! It was freezing and the only escape was an old panel heater that was not on.
