We made an unplanned visit here whilst on holiday in the area. We had two dogs with us, and they were made welcome in the bar area. The inside looks slightly dated, it's not posh, and initially looks unwelcoming, but actually the staff were friendly and it's really good value for money. We each had a carvery and it was... More

Small, local pub in the centre of Freshwater. Stopped here for drinks. It has a lovely open fire at the centre of the pub. The bar is well stocked with many local ales.

Pleasant enough hostelry that lacks that welcome feeling. The food is adequate if uninspiring. The atmosphere is not helped by the disinterest of the bar staff.

My husband and I are staying in Freshwater for the weekend. We went to The Vine Inn for dinner on our first night. I accidentally knocked over my drink and the staff immediately moved us to a new table, brought me a towel and a replacement drink on the house. Lovely friendly service and the food was good too. I... More

Food served promptly in a pleasant Fuller’s pub. A choice of sandwiches and plenty of pub favourites options too.
